Recovering From Liposuction

Following a liposuction procedure, you will have some soreness, swelling and bruising in the areas that were targeted. The good news is that these side effects can be easily controlled through pain medication (usually over the counter is sufficient) and should not persist for very long. If you work a desk job, you will likely be able to resume work one week after your surgery, or sooner in some situations.

In the event your job requires heavy lifting and vigorous activity, you may need additional time off of work. Dr. Brown will inform you of when it’s safe for you to get back to your professional duties.

Benefits of Liposuction

The greatest benefit of liposuction is its ability to reduce or remove stubborn fat in areas of your body that are resistant to diet and exercise. It can help you return to wearing clothing that didn’t fit properly or may have made you feel self-conscious in the past. Liposuction may be the right procedure for you to achieve your desired goals.

Good Candidates for Liposuction

Liposuction is recommended for men and women who are at or near their ideal weight yet are bothered by unwanted fat that won’t go away despite their healthy lifestyle. Lipoosuction is not a weight loss operation and if your body mass index is too high Dr. Brown will have you lose weight first in order to have a safe procedure. If you have good quality skin that is prone to become tight after liposuction, you may be a great candidate for this procedure. Scheduling a private consultation with Dr. Brown is the ideal way to determine if its a good option.

I am very pleased with my recent surgery with Dr. Brown. I felt I was in good hands, and it was explained in detail what he was going to do. He and his staff are very caring and helpful. I feel like a new person.
Thank you, Dr. Brown and staff.
