How soon after liposuction can I return to normal activities?
Home rest is necessary for the first twenty-four hours and then a light work schedule may be resumed. If sculpting is more extensive and performed in several areas, 2-3 days of recuperation may be necessary. Special elastic garments must be worn for 4 to 5 weeks after surgery. The rate of healing is accelerated as a result of the drainage of blood tinged anesthetic solution. Drainage minimizes bruising, reduces inflammation, and significantly accelerates healing.
