LIPOSUCTION - AFTERCARE
Going Home after Liposuction Surgery
Your Cosmetic Surgeon will discharge you. You will be offered painkillers and may be given antibiotics. You will need someone to accompany you/collect you to drive you home.
Recovery from Liposuction Surgery
It is completely normal to experience swelling, bruising and soreness to the area after liposuction surgery but this should subside one to two weeks after the procedure. However, the full results of the surgery are often not seen until six weeks after surgery when the area returns to normal and the incisions have fully healed. Because the incisions made are so small, any scarring will be minimal and will fade quickly over time, leaving you with smooth skin in the treated area. Your surgeon will advise you on when you can commence normal daily activity and exercise, but you will normally be asked to take one to two weeks off work to recover. You will be required to wear a post-surgery support garment to help keep the treated area supported and protected.
