Whenever you have any form
of major surgery, there will be a recovery period associated
with that surgery. The same goes with liposuction recovery.
It is considered major surgery and you can expect some pain and
discomfort while the body is repairing itself. Of course there
is medication available to help with this discomfort.
Liposuction recovery will also require you to wear post surgical
garments or bandages to firmly hold the area while it heals.
During liposuction recovery,
many patients have fluid drainage. Now some surgeons opt to
insert a tube to assist this drainage for the first few days.
Expect some bleeding along with swelling and possibly temporary
numbness of the treated area. The stitches will have to be
removed within 10 days or they will dissolve in that timeframe
as well. By this time, you should be feeling quite normal.
Surgeons wish for quick
liposuction recovery, but remember this is major surgery and
there is the possibility of complications. Most common occur
due to too much or too little fat being removed and too much
anesthesia. You want to go into this surgery fully aware of all
the possible complications so be sure to discuss them before
