Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat which is very difficult or near impossible to get rid of through exercise or dieting.
Depending on the type of surgery and the extent of it, you might need to stay back in the hospital post surgery or you may go home the same day.
Wearing a compression garment for 1 to 2 months after surgery is advised to control the swelling.
Antibiotics and other medications may also be prescribed.
Majority of the people undergoing liposuction can return to work within a few days and lead a normal life within 2 weeks. There are some exceptions however which may need you to be rested for some time.
The new fat cells keep on coming if you do not control the diet. Therefore if you want the results to last, follow the instructions of your doctor. That includes medication, dieting, and exercise.
