The doctors at Cosmos Clinic are adamant about aftercare and have developed and adapted the aftercare treatments following their own experiences of the procedure. Our doctors will not perform the procedure if you are not committed to the aftercare regime planned for you. The aftercare and the importance of it will be discussed fully during your consultation. It is imperative for your maximum healing and optimal long-term results.
Some pain or discomfort can be expected. You may require some pain relief, a script will be provided after your procedure.
By the end of your first week, you should be able to resume normal activities. Most people only need 2-7 days off work, but this may vary from patient to patient. You will need to wear a garment for 3 weeks full time then 3 weeks part time, for a total of 6 weeks. After this, your swelling should have subsided, and you should be completely back to normal, with a much slimmer figure!
You can slowly increase your activities as tolerated, over the next few days. It is important that you stay mobile to reduce the risk of developing blood clots. Avoid high impact exercise for 4-6 weeks. You may swim after 3 weeks when all incisions have closed.
Follow-ups commence the day after your procedure. On average, we undertake 3-6 post opt treatments, starting 1-5 days after your procedure. During each 30 minute session, you will be given a lymphatic drainage massage and/or a heat massage, which is undertaken by our onsite massage therapist or nurse. The ultrasound massage will give you a warming effect and will relax your muscles; this will also help with skin retraction. The lymphatic drainage massage helps speed up recovery by dispersing the excess fluid to help provide the best results possible.
