According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, liposuction is the second most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States, with 246,354 procedures performed in 2017. This kind of plastic surgery helps remove stubborn fat anywhere on your body that you can’t get rid of with diet and exercise.
If you are considering liposuction to help you achieve your health and beauty goals, Los Angeles is one of the top global destinations for cosmetic surgery where renowned surgeons are experts in using excess fat to sculpt and shape your body for an absolutely stunning result that will help you look and feel your best.
What to Expect During Liposuction Recovery
As a surgical procedure that involves large areas of skin and tissue, your liposuction recovery timeline could take two months or more. The good news is that many liposuction guests are back at work within 5-10 days and can resume their normal workouts approximately 4 weeks after surgery. To ensure the best results after your procedure, a safe environment and attentive nursing care during your recovery process are essential.
Our all-female nursing staff is thoroughly trained in liposuction recovery protocols, post-operative instructions, and liposuction recovery tips of the top plastic surgeons in Los Angeles. Recommendations for post-operative care during liposuction recovery vary according to the doctor, but often includes:
- Gentle exercise such as walking.
- Applying compression garments.
- Incision care and bandage changing.
- Emptying and cleaning surgical drains.
- Keeping incision sites dry while showering.
- Administering pain medication and antibiotics.
With our nursing staff on call 24/7, you can rest assured knowing that your recovery is in the best of hands.
