Getting back to normal
Healing is a gradual process. Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon will probably tell you to start walking around as soon as possible. You will begin to feel better after about a week, and you should be back to work within two weeks following your ultrasonic liposuction surgery. Any stitches are usually removed within the first week.
Activity that is more strenuous should be avoided for about three weeks as your body continues to heal. Although most of the bruising and swelling usually disappears within six weeks, some swelling may remain for six months or more.
Dr. Zevon, your ultrasonic liposuction, will schedule follow-up visits to monitor your progress and to see if any additional procedures are needed.
Your new look
You will see a noticeable difference in the shape of your body quite soon after ultrasonic liposuction surgery with Dr. Zevon. However, improvement will become even more apparent after about six weeks, when most of the swelling has subsided.
If your expectations are realistic, you will probably be very pleased with the results of your ultrasonic liposuction surgery. You may find that you are more comfortable in a wide variety of clothes and more at ease with your body. And, by eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise, you can help to maintain your new shape permanently.
