Everybody recovers differently from liposuction, but in general, San Fernando Valley patients can expect a bit of downtime after their procedure. Right after the surgery, patients will experience some bruising and swelling, as well as slight soreness. To promote healing, they’ll need to wear support garments that apply gentle pressure on the treatment area to minimize bruising and swelling, and also to keep everything precisely contoured. These garments are usually worn for up to six weeks, but Dr. Sanders will make a personalized recommendation for each patient.
Most San Fernando Valley patients can get back on their feet a day or so after surgery, and then they’re encouraged to take short walks to facilitate recovery. Usually, they can go back to work shortly thereafter, with full resolution of all swelling taking up to six months.
