Are you interested in undergoing liposuction surgery, but not sure how much time you need to take off to recover? Take a look at the average recovery time for liposuction surgery, including a few quick tips on how to have your best liposuction recovery possible.
While every patient is different, the average recovery time for liposuction surgery is about one week, depending on where the procedure was performed. In some cases, the recovery time could be even faster; for example, if you had localized liposuction underneath your chin, you could be back to work within two to three days after the procedure.
Tips for a Speedy and Healthy Recovery
1. Don’t push yourself to heal too quickly.
You may want to get back to your normal routine ASAP, but your body might have other plans. That’s why we recommend giving your body the time and care it needs to get back to 100%. If you push yourself too quickly to get back to work or regular life, you could compromise your results.
Give yourself as much time to rest as possible by preparing for those first few days of recovery. Cook a few casseroles, arrange for care to come to visit you and invest in some entertainment while you’re resting on the couch or in your room. That way, you won’t have to try to feed or take care of yourself while you’re still feeling uncomfortable.
3. Follow your plastic surgeon’s recovery plan.
At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, your liposuction surgeon will design a customized recovery plan to ensure that you get the exact results you’re looking for. It’s important to follow that recovery plan right down to the letter, as it’s designed to help you come out of the other end looking and feeling great about yourself!
“I have visited both Medspa and Dr. Sozer and both experiences have been great. I got liposuction and fat injections and I’m in love with the results, not only does Dr. Sozer change bodies but changes life’s too. From the moment you walk in every staff member is pleasant and wonderful. The Medspa is amazing with Botox and fillers, I have gone with each nurse and there all very knowledgeable, love the Picolaser and chemical peels. I would highly recommended all of the services provided by El Paso Cosmetic surgery!!!” *
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
Yo estoy super contenta y satisfecha con los servicios recibidos en El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. El Dr. Sozer es muy profesional, me dio muchísima confianza desde el principio y contesto todas mis dudas y preguntas. Todo su personal es muy amable, las chicas en recepción y las enfermeras muy serviciales. Absolutamente creo que es el mejor lugar para obtener una cirugía cosmética. Estoy super contenta con los resultados de mi Mommy Makeover y de otros tratamientos que obtuve en mi rostro, sobrepaso mis expectativas en todos los aspectos. Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
