Liposuction Downtime

Liposuction downtime depends on multiple factors related to the surgery itself. First, let us review. What is liposuction? Liposuction is a plastic surgery technique that removes excess fats in areas resistant to diet and exercise. Incisions are made through which, a cannula is inserted in the body and attached to a suction machine. Using a back and forth motion, the excess fats are harvested. Liposuction is an extremely common procedure and it is one of the most effective procedures in achieving immediate surgical result. The downtime will largely depend on the extent of the procedure and how aggressive your surgeon was in removing the fat. If liposuction is performed in more than one area, your downtime will be understandably longer. In addition, each person is different and some people will have more swelling than others. Some patients develop protracted swelling after surgery, which can affect the downtime of the surgery. It is extremely important to use a compressing corset or a girdle for at least 2 to 3 months to achieve good results and to help in skin retraction. In addition, pain is very personal and subjective and there are some patients who feel more pain than others. As point of fact, liposuction does not actually cause excessive pain after surgery to the extent that it delays your recovery. Now, it is also important to know that liposuction downtime will also depend on the surgical site. Some parts of the body, particularly the thighs, take longer time to heal, even much longer than the abdomen. This is due to various reasons including injury to lymphatic vessels in the legs, which can result in prolonged swelling. I noticed that the patient who has liposuction done on the thigh develop hypersensitivity of the thigh. I am not sure why this occurs, but it is an area where pain tends to be more prolonged compared to the arms or the abdomen. Normally, you can go back to work within 10 to 14 days after liposuction. Again, actual recovery time will depend on how fast you heal, how much fat was removed, area of removal plus other factors. Your surgeon will be able to determine this and will give you instructions on post-op care during your follow up visits.
