Your liposuction recovery will depend on factors unique to your anatomy as well as steps you took preoperative to prepare for the procedure. During your advanced liposuction planning phase, Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon Dr. Andre Berger will discuss preoperative steps including stopping smoking and discontinuing certain medications and herbs. Following Dr. Berger’s suggestions closely will help speed liposuction recovery and work to ensure the most pleasing results.
Minimally Invasive Liposuction Techniques
If you have questions about liposuction recovery in Beverly Hills or Los Angeles, call Dr. Andre Berger at 310.856.9173 to schedule a consultation today. Dr. Berger utilized advanced, minimally invasive liposuction techniques – including Smartlipo™ and tumescent liposuction – that can help eliminate damage to adjacent tissue while maximizing the removal of unsightly fat deposits. These procedures, performed in our accredited on-site surgical center, are gentle enough to make IV sedation unnecessary, further reducing your risks and helping encourage a faster recovery.
It is important to remember that, even with advanced liposuction techniques, your body’s natural healing ability and your willingness to follow postoperative instructions is essential for a quick recovery. Dr. Berger will discuss postoperative care in detail before and after your procedure to help facilitate the safest and most comfortable recovery possible.
Recovering from Liposuction
While every liposuction recovery is slightly different, they often share similar requirements. These may include:
- Limiting physical activities
- Taking time off of work
- Allowing your body time to rest
- Caring for incisions
- Wearing compression garments
Dr. Berger’s liposuction techniques typically allow for incisions to be closed without stitches. This helps reduce risks of scaring, but does not eliminate the need to care for incisions. Similarly, compression garments will not be required following every liposuction procedure, but when needed, wearing them diligently will be necessary for optimal results.
Everyone’s body responds differently to surgical procedures and liposuction is no exception. Beverly Hills liposuction surgeon Dr. Andre Berger will work individually with you at all times to help make sure you are provided the tools you need to make the fastest, most comfortable, and most rewarding recovery possible.
