Patients can shower the next day and exercise in a week. I have them wear a compression garment for four weeks.
Q: What is the recovery like after liposuction?
What our experts say:
The majority of patients are going to be able to have liposuction on Friday and be at work on Monday. Now there is going to be bruising that will probably be there for about three weeks or maybe four weeks. You are walking around slowly and feeling soreness. Patients report soreness rather than the word pain. So it’s not a very big deal and you can go back to normal activity. You can be back at the gym within five to seven days after liposuction. I wouldn’t recommend anything like swimming in the ocean because you still have tiny fresh scars, but in terms of exercise and recreation you have a lot of freedom.
