What is the rule for exercise after Smart Lipo and does exercise impact how tight the skin can heal to the muscle wall and potentially cause dimpling or pockets?
I just had my second Smart Lipo procedure. I had to repeat it on my abdomen because there was some loose skin, and pockets of fat near the belly button. I have been reading different things from different doctor's re: exercise after. I was told I could walk afterwards and should, does that mean a light walk or a hike?
The reason I want to know is that some sites say no activity for 2 to 6 weeks and others say exercise is fine after 10-14 days if you feel fine as long as you wear your compression garment. I am afraid my activity prevented the skin from healing tightly to the muscle wall the first time and this is why I had "dimpling".
Can I exercise lightly (light machine assisted weights and/or light walking) after 10-14 days with a compression garment on? Will this impact how smoothly or tightly the skin heals back to the muscle wall? Or does anything that causes my stomach muscles to work negatively impact how tight the skin will heal back after Smart Lipo? Any help is appreciated.
