Liposuction is a way to surgically achieve better body contours by removing stubborn deposits of excess fatty tissue. Once you have sculpted your body with this procedure, it will be important to follow your plastic surgeon’s liposuction recovery instructions.
During your liposuction recovery, any swelling and bruising in the treated area will be minimized with the help of a girdle, body stocking, or elastic dressing. This garment, which should be worn for a period of at least six weeks, also aids in shrinking the skin in the region to better fit the new volume.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vaishali Doolabh will be able to discuss the best practices for your liposuction recovery process during a consultation. Armed with this knowledge, you’ll be able to have the most comfortable recovery possible. Contact us to set up a consultation and find out more.
