THE RECOVERY PROCESS
Immediately after your surgery, there will be some discomfort as well as swelling and bruising around the treated area. These will subside with time, and your surgeon can help ease any pain experienced with medication.
While you will see immediate results from the surgery, the final transformation will take several months, as your body will need time to heal, and the swelling will distort your new figure. To reduce swelling you may be required to wear compression garments for several weeks, this will also assist in shaping your skin to your body.
As liposuction is relatively non-invasive, most patients can return to work within three days. However, more intensive procedures may require you to take up to one week off. After two weeks you can begin mild exercise, but do not attempt rigorous activity for at least four to six weeks.
