Body Sculpting Recovery
Having excess fat and skin on your body can get in the way of your self-confidence. While a balanced diet and regular exercise regimen are the best long-term strategies for achieving a slimmer body shape, sometimes a little sculpting surgery is needed to combat stubborn fat reserves such as those caused by genetics or past pregnancy.
Body sculpting is a generally non-invasive contouring procedure that helps eliminate unwanted body fat. Before and after your body sculpting surgery, specialized care can help you make sure that your recovery process goes as smoothly as possible. As a top-referred recovery center with experience working with the most popular surgeons in Beverly Hills, Pearl Recovery can help create a personalized care program that both pampers you and promotes healing during your body sculpting surgery recovery.
What To Expect From Body Sculpting Surgery
Body contouring surgeries are plastic surgeries that target one or more areas of the body at a time, reducing unseemly excess skin, cellulite, or pockets of fat. It’s a broad category of surgeries that includes:
A plastic surgeon can work with you to determine which procedure(s) can help you with your unique goals. While many body sculpting surgeries are outpatient procedures, you won’t be able to return to your normal lifestyle right away. Contouring surgery recovery will involve taking at least a week off from work.
Body Sculpting Surgery Recovery
Changes will be immediately visible following body contouring surgery, but final results can take up to two years to take shape. For several weeks after sculpting surgery, you will not be able to resume normal activity. During this time, you should focus on healing and follow your surgeon’s instructions when it comes to:
- Taking pain medication
- Wearing compression garments
- Changing your drainage tubes
- Taking daily walks to prevents clots and constipation
- Getting bedrest
- Getting proper nutrition
Pearl Recovery Retreat has ten years of cosmetic surgery postoperative care experience. We work with your surgeon to create individualized and discreet recovery care plans to make your body sculpting surgery recovery as comfortable as possible. During your contouring surgery recovery stay, you will stay in a modern luxury hotel room at the 5-star Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills, all the while having all of your daily nutrition — such as personalized post surgery juice cleanses — and wound care needs taken care of by our trained nurses.
What About Non-Surgical Body Sculpting?
Did you know that not all body contouring procedures are surgeries? While non-invasive procedures generally result in less drastic fat reduction, the recovery is also a lot easier than body sculpting surgery recovery. Popular FDA-approved non-invasive fat reduction procedures include:
- Cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting)
- Laser Treatment (SculpSure)
- Injectable Deoxycholic Acid (Kybella)
- Ultrasound Fat Reduction
- Red Light Therapy (UltraSlim)
Patients of non-invasive body sculpting can also benefit from a brief stay at Pearl Wellness.
