Post-Op Liposuction Recovery

Liposuction, BBL, & Tummy Tuck recovery

Your surgeon will select the appropriate liposuction technique based on your treatment goals, the area of your body to be treated, and whether you have had other liposuction procedures in the past. Your Post-Op liposuction recovery depends on the care you do before and after surgery. Including, Post-Lipo Lymphatic Drainage Massage, and fibrosis prevention.

Most commonly the surgeon injects a sterile solution — a mixture of salt water, which aids fat removal, an anesthetic (lidocaine) to relieve pain and a drug (epinephrine) that causes the blood vessels to constrict — into the area that is being treated. The fluid mixture causes the affected area to swell and stiffen.

The surgeon then makes small cuts into your skin and inserts a thin tube called a cannula under your skin. The cannula is connected to a vacuum that suctions fat and fluids from your body.

Common side effects from Liposuction:

As with any major surgery, liposuction has side effects. The most common ones specific to liposuction include:

  1. Edema & Swelling: Post-liposuction swelling typically reaches its maximum around 48 hours after your procedure but may not entirely dissipate for up to six-nine months.
  1. Bruising: Bruises are broken down cellular debris and old red blood cells stuck in the tissues after surgery.
  1. Seromas: Temporary pockets of fluid can form under the skin. This fluid is composed of blood plasma that has seeped out of ruptured small blood vessels and inflammatory fluid produced by injured dying cells.  They are not hematomas, which contain red blood cells. Serous fluid is also different from the lymph.  Seromas can gradually reabsorb over time.  This can take days to weeks or even months. The problem of waiting a long period of time is that it keeps the skin stretched and more scar tissue is created underneath.
  1. Fibrosis: After the trauma of surgery your body immediately sends immune cells and stabilizing proteins to heal the area.  When these stabilizing structures, if allowed to build up, can cause lumps to form.
  1. Scaring: When a surgery is performed lymphatic vessels are cut. Over time, lymph vessels will rebuild. But as scar tissue forms it can inhibit the proper function of these vessels, resulting in prolonged swelling, pain, reduced range of motion and numbness.

6. Contour irregularities & lumpiness: Your skin may appear bumpy, wavy, or withered due to uneven fat removal, poor skin elasticity and unusual healing.

Post-Op Liposuction Recovery is important to heal more quickly and with better overall results.
