Body Sculpting Surgery 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 or contouring is a generally non-invasive contouring procedure that helps eliminate unwanted body fat.
Pre- and post-body sculpting surgery, specialized care helps to ensure that your recovery process goes as smoothly as possible. As a top-referred provider of postoperative care services and over 10 years of experience working with world-renowned surgeons, Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness can help create a personalized care program both pampers you and promotes healing during your body sculpting surgery recovery.
Common Body Contouring Procedures
Body contouring or sculpting is a cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure that targets 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.
What to Expect During Body Sculpting Surgery Recovery
Immediately following body contouring surgery, changes will be visible, yet 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:
- Getting bedrest.
- Taking pain medication.
- Getting proper nutrition.
- Changing your drainage tubes.
- Wearing compression garments.
- Taking daily walks to prevents clots and constipation.
With over ten years of postoperative experience, Pearl Recovery Retreat & Wellness works with surgeons to create individualized aftercare plans to help ensure a smooth, comfortable experience and process. During your contouring surgery recovery stay, you will stay in a modern luxury hotel room, 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.
