Liposuction

Quick facts

How long is the surgery?
Length of the surgery varies depending on the number of areas treated. One area typically takes one hour.

General or local anesthesia?
The surgery is done in the operating room often under local anesthetic with light sedation or under general anesthesia if the treatment is more extensive.

When can I go home?
The same day as the procedure

When can I shower?
Immediately

Recovery time?
Depending on the extent of the treatment you can expect to return to work 5-14 days after being treated.

When can I exercise?
Most patients will begin resuming physical activities 4 weeks after surgery.

Painful?
The treated area is tender, and can feel as if you have a bruise for about 2 weeks after the surgery. The overlying skin will feel numb for 6-8 weeks. I recommend my patients wear a compressive surgical garment for 3-4 weeks to ensure the best results.
