What to expect with liposuction recovery
It’s typical to have bruising and swelling for one to two weeks, and you will have any stitches removed within seven days of your procedure. The most important thing to do after liposuction is to give your body time to rest and heal. Once you return to work after your surgery, you should do your best to take it slow and easy. To increase your strength and stamina, perform very light workouts, and go for walks as advised by our plastic surgeon. Keep in mind that you may see some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take about six months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
