Liposuction Recovery

in Albany, NY

What Will my Recovery be Like?

After your liposuction procedure, there will be bruising and swelling for the first week to 10 days. If you’ve had fat removed from a single area, you can usually return to work in two or three days. If you’ve had multiple areas treated, you’ll probably need about a week off from work. You will have elastic bandages covering the treatment site and will be required to wear compression garments all day (except when showering) for the first three or four weeks. From there on, Dr. Kayastha recommends continuing to wear compression garments for the next two months, at least for some part of each day. This helps the body adjust to its new contour, and in the beginning, this helps to reduce swelling.

Once fully recovered from your liposuction procedure, you can enjoy a slimmer contour. Fat cells cannot return or “grow back” once removed, however, it’s important to still maintain your healthy weight through diet and exercise. Weight can still be gained in untreated areas which could affect the results of your procedure.

Thank you Dr.K and staff :)

I highly recommend Dr. Kayastha for your plastic surgery needs. Dr. K and his staff made me feel welcomed and safe from the first day and continue to do so at all my post-op appointments. I consulted a few other plastic surgeons in the capital region and NYC but Dr.K stood out for me. He’s kind, friendly and explained everything in detail. I felt comfortable and understood. 4 weeks ago Dr.K did my tummy tuck and I’m very happy with the results, I can’t wait to see the final results when I’m all healed up. Thank you Dr.K and staff 🙂
