Once your procedure is completed, a compression garment or elastic bandages may cover treatment areas. These help to control swelling after liposuction and compress the skin to your new body contours.
You will be given specific instructions that may include: How to care for the surgical site(s), medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon.
The key to rapid recovery from liposuction is utilizing a technique that gives us a high level of control while causing minimal tissue trauma. Our refined techniques allow a high level of precision, minimal impact on nearby tissues, and less bruising. This means faster recovery for our patients.
Additional steps we take to ensure rapid recovery include:
– Strategic operative planning, with careful consideration given to achieving the best possible result with minimal recovery time
– Gentle, efficient and precise techniques that minimize bruising and swelling
– Compression garments that help skin and underlying tissues re-adhere
