A lot of people suffer from stubborn pockets of fat that don’t seem to want to budge! You may have tried a hundred different exercises but to no avail! If this sounds familiar, then liposuction could be the treatment for you, and it is something we offer here at Pure Plastic Surgery.
Liposuction is a procedure that involves removing small areas of fat from your body so that you can achieve a more contoured and firm body shape. When considering whether or not this treatment is right for you, one thing you will likely want to know more about is the recovery process.
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure, which means most patients will be able to return home the same day. When you do leave the clinic, you will need someone else to drive you home.
Elastic bandages or a compression garment will be given to you to wrap around the treatment area. Wearing these diligently is essential, as they help to contour your body and reduce swelling too. It is also possible that you may have a small drain placed at the surgical site, although this is not always the case.
Moderate soreness and pain are to be expected during the first few days of recovery. After a couple of weeks, you can start to resume normal daily activities, however, you should not partake in anything strenuous. The one-month mark is when people start to feel normal again, meaning less pain or soreness, yet swelling may still be present.
