Recovery after high-def lipo
After your procedure, you will need to rest for a few days to a week. Give yourself time to relax and heal, but you can walk around or engage in light exercise to promote healing and reduce stiffness after a couple of days.
You may return to sedentary work after about one week, and after about two weeks, you can do manual labor. However, it will take about six weeks to get back into strenuous exercise and workouts again.
You will be able to see immediate results after your procedure. Because the fat cells are directly removed during the liposuction procedure, you don’t have to wait for your body to flush out the fat cells on its own–the fat cells are already gone. You will need to wait for a few months for the ultimate results, which will come once your skin has fully snapped back and tightened up again. To achieve faster results, stay hydrated, avoid the sun, don’t smoke, and follow a healthy diet.
Your results are considered permanent because once the fat cells are gone, they won’t come back. However, if you gain weight newly, the remaining fat cells in the area may expand.
