Liposuction Recovery Tips
One of the more common plastic surgery procedures is liposuction. The risk factors behind this procedure have greatly reduced over the last ten years because of so many medical developments, but one thing that hasn't changed is the fact that people need to take care of their bodies after surgery in order to ensure an easy and speedy liposuction recovery.
One of the issues with liposuction recovery is adema. This is when fluid collects under the incision site and can lead to discomfort, swelling, and more serious issues. There are many things your doctor can do to help prevent these issues during your cosmetic procedure, but following your treatment there are also things you can do.
When incisions are left open after liposuction the fluid can drain out. By using compression garments your healing process can begin more quickly and the excess fluid can drain. These garments help to squeeze out any excess fluid; which helps your body to heal without the need of stitches. Many people return to work after three or more days of rest and compression garments can also help this process to go much smoother and with less discomfort.
Open drainage also allows for less bruising and swelling, which speeds up the liposuction recovery time. With the use of compression garments most patients feel back to normal with no bruising or other issues by the end of a month. Of course it is important to remember that each person is different and your healing time will be unique to your body's specific needs.
