How to Quickly Recover from Your New Jersey Liposuction


Quickly recover from your LiposuctionThe speed of your New Jersey liposuction recovery is influenced by several factors such as your overall health, the surgical method used, your surgeon’s skills, and the volume of fat suctioned. While some of these factors are beyond your control, you can increase your comfort level and increase your chances of a quick recovery by following certain principles. We list them down below for you!

– You will most likely be asked by your surgeon to stay overnight after the procedure. Your pain score will be continuously assessed around this time.

– Swelling is a very common occurrence following liposuction, particularly 24 to 48 hours after surgery. Compression garments would be very helpful in reducing swelling by improving blood circulation and get rid of potentially dangerous fluids in your body. Dr. Weinstein will provide you with instructions on taking care of compression garments. If you think that your compression garment is too tight, inform Dr. Weinstein about it right away.

– Swelling, bruising and numbness are quite common after liposuction and will most likely resolve in a week or two. It is very important that you take enough rest during the first week. However, it is also important that you take tiny steps and try to slowly walk around as soon as you are able. Inactivity is heavily discouraged as this could lead to blood clot formation.

– Lifting, bending over, and straining should be avoided post-surgery. You will be able to return to moderate physical activities in 2 to 3 weeks after liposuction.

Follow-Up Visits After Your New Jersey Liposuction

Apart from strictly following Dr. Weinstein’s post-surgery instructions, it is also very crucial that you return to his clinic for follow-up visits with the prescribed intervals. Keep in mind that your relationship with your liposuction surgeon doesn’t end after surgery. It is best to keep in touch with your doctor from time to time following liposuction and have your progress checked.
