Life After Liposuction: What To Expect After
Liposuction continues to be one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures worldwide, known for its transformative effects on the body. Also referred to as lipoplasty or fat removal surgery, liposuction is meticulously designed to eliminate excess fat deposits from targeted areas and refine body contours.
At Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group, we excel in providing exceptional plastic surgery solutions, including the latest advancements in liposuction techniques. One such innovative procedure is Renuvion, also known as JPlasma, which has shown remarkable outcomes in skin tightening and body contouring. By combining the precision of modern High-Definition Liposuction, such as VASER-Assisted Liposuction, with the groundbreaking technology of Renuvion, we can achieve even more precise body sculpting and aesthetic enhancements.
Under the expert guidance of our multiple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Allen Rezai, we prioritise excellence and personalisation in every liposuction procedure. Before beginning the transformative journey, our patients undergo thorough consultations to assess their unique anatomy and discuss desired outcomes. This personalised approach ensures that each liposuction procedure at Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group is tailored to meet the specific needs and aesthetic goals of our patients.
Commonly Treated Areas
Liposuction can effectively target various areas prone to stubborn fat deposits, including the chin/neck, chest, arms, armpits/bra area, flanks (love handles), hips, upper and lower abdomen, thighs, and knees. Our commitment to precision ensures that each procedure not only removes excess fat but also harmonises the natural contours of the body, resulting in remarkable aesthetic outcomes.
Life After Liposuction
Post-liposuction, the recovery process is of utmost importance. Our expert team at Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group provides careful monitoring and guidance throughout this phase. Depending on the extent of the procedure, patients may be discharged on the same day or require an overnight hospital stay for more extensive cases or when liposuction is combined with other procedures.
First 7 Days:
In the initial week following the surgery, it is common to experience swelling, bruising, and some discomfort. Wearing a tight support garment for several weeks is necessary to help the body adapt to its newly refined contours. Patients are advised to relax and avoid strenuous activities during this period. Our Specialist Nurses at Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group will provide daily check-ins to ensure the patient’s well-being and progress. It is crucial to follow all postoperative care instructions, including proper wound care and medication intake, until the first post-op appointment.
After Your First Post-Op until Four to Six Weeks Appointment:
Once sutures are removed, usually around ten days to weeks, patients can gradually return to work and normal daily activities. Wearing a compression garment is still required until the next post-op appointment.
Following Four to Six Weeks Appointment:
Bruising typically resolves by this time, though some swelling may persist. Caring for scars is essential during this period to improve their appearance. Patients can gradually reintroduce regular fitness activities and exercise, leading to long-term results.
Liposuction surgery can provide significant and lasting results. By maintaining a sensible weight and incorporating regular exercise, patients can help maintain and improve upon the results achieved. Our approach at Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group prioritises the patient’s well-being, ensuring a personalised postoperative care plan that addresses any specific concerns and guarantees a positive experience throughout the recovery period.
