Tumescent Liposuction Recovery
Recovery time varies significantly from person to person. Many patients are able to walk out of office without assistance and get back to their regular routine within a few days. The sooner patient begins to move around, faster healing progresses. For others, healing may entail following:
•It takes almost six weeks for any resulting scar to begin to soften and a full year to heal completely. •A patient may feel temporary numbness in treated area because local anesthetic remains in tissue for twenty-four hours or more after surgery. •Some patients may experience minor discomfort after numbness wears off. •Physical exercise is not recommended until at least a week after surgery.
Most patients are generally alert and able to function after surgery; they do not experience nausea and grogginess usually associated with general anesthesia.
