Finally, you’ve made it through and you can’t wait to see the results. Many hold their breaths before going through with what started as a distant idea to have liposuction. But once they finally have the procedure the pain, swelling, soreness, bruising and discomfort quickly snaps them back to reality. But like they said no pain, no gain. If you want to gain that perfect chin, perfect waist, perfect butt, you must be willing to endure the pain. Here we delve deeper into what to expect in regards to the process of recovery after liposuction.
Often Liposuction is conducted on an outpatient basis. Here you come in, go through surgery, stay for a few hours under observation and leave after a few hours. One is expected to head home and rest before they are allowed to get back to their normal daily schedule. For laser liposuction, recovery is quick. In at least two days one can go back to work. You are however encouraged to go easy on yourself and avoid too much physical stress on your body. After a few weeks, you will be fully recovered save for some soreness, bruising and swelling which will go away with time.
People come in different shapes and sizes. As such, one person may look totally different from what they expected. Most patients feel happy with their outcomes but a few whose expectation may have been unrealistic, end up in regret. If you have liposuction around your waist, for instance, the fat cells in this area are removed and it is very unlikely that the fat will accumulate there again. However, this is not to say that you will not gain weight thereafter. Fat cells may still find their way to other parts of the body. To avoid this unfortunate situation doctors recommendations encourage one to keep fit while eating healthy to keep their health and weight in check.
