Recovery after liposuction comes in stages, your first few days you will be quite sore, similiar to deep bruising, but this improves quite quickly over the next few days. It will take several weeks before you are healed enough to begin a vigorous exercise routine, but most people do not need more than a few days or up to a week before returning to work and their normal daily activities. You will be wearing a compression garment to support the area of liposuction during your healing time. You will begin to see your transformation within a few weeks, but complete healing can take up to 6 months.
Liposuction surgery can be transforming and life changing for many people. To maintain the results that you get with the surgery, a regular exercise and healthy diet program will prevent unwanted weight gain.
