Downtime is minimal, and patients return home on the same day as their procedure. Recovery is quick and most patients are back at work within 2 – 3 days. The tiny incisions used during this procedure result in minimal scarring. A compression garment is worn after the treatment to help reduce bruising/swelling and improve skin retraction. This is worn for 3 – 6 weeks post surgery. You will come into our Clinic for post-op lymphatic massages which are performed by our onsite physiotherapist or nurse. This is usually 2 – 4 treatments over two weeks. Read more about the Post Liposuction Aftercare.
