Liposuction Downtime

Liposuction downtime depends on multiple factors related to the surgery itself. Liposuction is a plastic surgery technique that removes excess fats in areas. Incisions are made through which, a cannula is inserted into the body and attached to a suction machine. Using a back and forth motion, the excess fats are harvested. Liposuction is one of the most effective procedures in achieving an immediate surgical result. The downtime will largely depend on the extent of the procedure and how aggressive your surgeon in removing the fat. If liposuction is performed in more than one area, downtime will be understandably longer. Each person is different and some 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 help in skin retraction. Pain is very personal and subjective and there are some patients who feel more pain than others. 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, like thighs, take a longer time to heal, even longer than the abdomen. This is due to various reasons including injury to lymphatic vessels in the legs, resulting in prolonged swelling. A patient who has liposuction done on thigh develop hypersensitivity of the thigh. In this area, pain tends to be more prolonged compared to the arms or abdomen. Normally, you can go back to work within 10 to 14 days after liposuction. Actual recovery time will depend on how fast you heal, how much fat was removed, the area of removal plus other factors. The surgeon can determine and give you instructions on post-op care during follow up visits.
