TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF AFTER LIPOSUCTION

AFTER LIPOSUCTIONLiposuction can only be successful with proper short-term and long-term care. Short-term care for liposuction starts right after the procedure and continues for a few months. However, the most challenging part of liposuction aftercare is the long-term care—sustaining the new figure over the long haul. Let’s explore both types of care in detail.

Short-term care

Short-term care is very important after liposuction. It starts after your surgery is complete and you are ready to go home. Below are some instructions on how to take care of yourself right after liposuction and for the first few weeks or months after the procedure:

  • Make sure to arrange someone to drive your home from the hospital after the surgery.
  • If your liposuction was performed under local anesthesia, you can recommence your normal diet right after the procedure.
  • Make sure to drink a lot of liquids after liposuction to avoid dehydration. Also, don’t drink alcoholic drinks for a week or two after surgery.
  • Do not engage in physical activity for about 18 hours after the procedure; however, you may take a short walk 18 hours after the surgery. You can gradually increase your physical activity starting four days after the procedure.
  • Make sure to obey your surgeon’s instructions, especially when it comes to returning to your normal routine and work.
  • Make sure to wear your elastic compression garments after the procedure for the time period recommended by your doctor. These garments are especially made to give you stable compression and to support drainage of blood and other residual fluids from the surgical site.
  • If you feel dizzy after removing the compression garment, make sure to take deep breaths and sit or lie down.
  • Make sure not to smoke for at least four weeks after the liposuction procedure, because nicotine hinders the healing process and may trigger health complications.
  • Make sure to keep the surgical site clean and don’t allow your friends or anyone else to touch it. It is important to take a shower once or twice a day.
  • If your surgeon has prescribed you any medications, make sure to take them on time and as recommended.
  • If you feel anything abnormal at the incision site or experience continuous pain or inflammation, contact your surgeon immediately.

Long-term care

If you want your liposuction to keep serving you over the long-term, make sure to follow the instructions below:

  • Engage in workouts on a regular basis. It is best to get a gym membership and walk a few miles every day.
  • Keep an eye on your diet. Think about your situation before liposuction and promise yourself that you’ll never let that situation reoccur.
  • Make sure to eat more fruits and vegetables. Steer clear of unhealthy foods like junk foods, carbohydrates, and sugars.
  • Drink a lot of water to keep your body hydrated. It is also wise to drink a lot of fresh juices to stay in good health.
  • Strictly follow the instructions provided by your plastic surgeon.
  • If you see or experience anything abnormal at your liposuction site, seek medical help immediately.

It is very important to bear in mind that the success of your liposuction depends on how well you take care of yourself after the procedure. Even though the procedure will help boost your self-esteem by improving your appearance, you must take good care of your health to keep enjoying the outcomes of liposuction.
