Exercise after neck lipo

Generally patients can begin light exercise two weeks after surgery and gradually build up to their full regimen over several weeks. Just give yourself some time to recuperate from surgery.

I aks my patients to wait 3 weeks before vigorous exercise after Chin or Neck Liposuction, ask your doctor


Vigorous exercise increases heart rate and blood flow. After Liposuction of the Chin or neck or any area, blood vessels are dilated and new blood vessels form to speed healing.

Increasing blood flow and heart rate could lead to bleeding or increased swelling during the first 2 or 3 weeks so I suggest waiting 3 weeks.

If after three weeks the Chin or Neck area that was treated with Liposuction feels flush or tight or swells obviously wait longer.

Be sure to ask your doctor for his/her recommendation

Exercise after liposuction of chin/neck


I recommend waiting around two weeks before you resume physical activity after liposuction of the neck and chin area.  Begin with light aerobic activity before working your way up to more strenuous activity such as weightlifting.  Remember to wear your supportive garment at all times during the first week, then at night for an additional two weeks.

Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon before considering cosmetic plastic surgery of your neck.

Best wishes,

Light Exercise Generally Fine 1 Week After Submental Liposuction


With any surgical procedure, there is a difference between vigorous exercise and light exercise.  Generally speaking, light exercise such as walking on a treadmill can begin after 1 week.  Vigorous exercise will be highly dependent on the actual procedure but after submental liposuction is usually about 2-3 weeks.  Make sure you discuss this issue with your surgeon before the procedure.  You certainly would not want a complication to occur.
