Liposuction: Q&AAsk a Question
Liposuction Downtime - when is Recovery is Over?
I've had my abdomen, hips, and flanks liposuctioned close to 4 months ago. My abdomen has bulging lumps (mainly below belly button) and hardness. How long will it take for my body to return to normal and the lumps and hardness to diminish? Basically when is my liposuction recovery officially over?
Recovery after liposuction.
Recovery from liposuction takes months
The normal final result is expected about 4-5 months after surgery
Six months for liposuction recovery
Liposuction recovery happens in phases
At 4 months things should be pretty settled after liposuction
Massage during liposuction recovery
Probably by 6-8 months
It usually take a full year for the body to remodel any surgical scar but the initial down time is only one week.
