After your surgery
After ultrasonic liposuction surgery with New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon, you will likely experience some fluid drainage from the incisions. A drainage tube may be inserted beneath the skin to prevent fluid build-up. To help control swelling, Dr. Zevon may fit you with a snug elastic bandage or compression garment to wear over the treated area. The bandage or garment is typically worn for up to four weeks, to help your skin shrink to fit its new contour.
The side-effects of traditional liposuction surgery—pain, burning, swelling, bleeding and temporary numbness—can be expected from ultrasonic liposuction surgery as well. The pain can be controlled with medications prescribed by New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon, though you may still feel stiff and sore for a few days.
It is normal to feel a bit depressed in the days or weeks following ultrasonic liposuction surgery. This feeling will subside as you begin to look and feel better.
