When Will You See Liposuction Results?Posted on January 15, 2022
Liposuction removes unwanted fat from the body immediately. However, the results of this cosmetic surgery are not immediately visible. You would need to give your body time to heal from the surgery. You can determine whether the surgery is right for you by knowing what to expect from the procedure and the time taken to notice results.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides liposuction body contouring surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
Following liposuction plastic surgery, the improved body contours will quickly become visible as the initial swelling gets resolved. However, you may need to give your body up to a year to notice full results of liposuction. The time taken before results show themselves differs from patient to patient. Few patients notice dramatic improvements by 3 – 6 months following the procedure.
Many people assume that they have seen the final results by that time only to realize that more results become apparent as time passes. Initial reduction may seem to fade because of swelling. You should be able to notice results as soon as the swelling subsides.
You should wait at least a year if you are not happy with the surgery or think that you would require an additional procedure for getting rid of the extra fat. It is not recommended to have revision surgery before this period.
There are a lot of things you can do to improve the results following liposuction and making them more visible. The best way to improve results following your liposuction treatment is to wear compression garment as instructed by your surgeon. Elastic compression garment does a good job of holding everything in place following the liposuction procedure.
It can help improve the shape of your body. Compression garment helps in minimizing swelling and can reduce pain and discomfort. You may want to avoid strenuous exercises for a while following the surgery. It’s crucial that you not lead a sedentary life while recovering. You should take regular walks, which will help you get back to a normal routine more quickly.
This will prevent the formation of blood clots and other complications. You will also get back into the swing of exercising by going on walks during the initial recovery.
Maintaining Liposuction Results
Liposuction surgery is not a permanent weight loss method even though the fat taken away during the surgery is gone for good. Remaining fat cells tend to expand if you gain weight at a later stage. This may undo the results following the procedure. It is recommended that you stick to a healthy exercise routine and diet following the surgery. This will help you get the most out of your results.
You will be given specific advice by your surgeon on exercising and eating. Eating fewer calories every day and getting more exercise can help in maintaining the results of liposuction for years to come. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for liposuction fat reduction and body contouring surgery.
