Once you’ve determined you’re a good candidate for liposuction and you’re ready to move forward with your procedure, there are some tips that will help you have a smooth, comfortable recovery and get the best results possible.
While there are many methods of liposuction, PowerLipo™ is ideal for patients wanting a quick recovery without sacrificing results. This method is our safest and most effective body contouring procedure and also offers the shortest and most comfortable recovery period.
PowerLipo™ produces immediate results that continue to improve for months to come and offers an added bonus of no stitches or downtime. Patients do not need general anesthesia for PowerLipo™ and can return to their normal activities within just 24 hours after the procedure.
Stay Mildly Active
Some may think that lipo recovery involves complete bed rest with no activity. On the contrary, light physical activity can actually expedite the healing process. Staying active increases circulation which reduces swelling and edema.
Drinking plenty of fluids in the hours and weeks following your procedure can help significantly reduce edema and help your body flush out excess fluid and toxins. Overall, staying well-hydrated will have a positive impact on your body’s ability to heal after lipo.
Your surgeon will advise you on how much you should rest and how active you should be after surgery. The most important post-op advice is to follow your doctor’s instructions. However, you need to listen to your body, too. If it hurts to do something, this is your body’s way of saying you are pushing yourself too hard. Take it easy and save your energy for your recovery.
