If you’ve made the decision to have liposuction, you may be wondering what to expect when it comes to recovery. While the recovery period is different for every patient, this liposuction recovery timeline can help give you an idea of what to expect after lipo.
Post-Liposuction Week 1
The first week after your liposuction procedure is likely to be the most uncomfortable. You will probably experience slight pain and soreness, though this pain is typically manageable with prescribed pain medications. Your activity levels will be low, especially for the first few days. You may want to have someone that can help around the house with daily tasks, such as making dinner. Compression garments should be worn to help reduce the swelling that typically occurs after liposuction.
