Smart Lipo/Vaser if You Live at Home Alone?

I have my appointment for my stomach and back scheduled for a few weeks from now. Has anyone gotten the surgery that lives alone... if so did you need to stay with someone or is it just mainly resting?

Recovery after Liposuction?

Thank you for the question.

I would suggest that you have a family member or friend or nurse stay with you for at least one day (a few days is optimal) after your procedure. This is regardless if the procedures done under local anesthesia with sedation or under general anesthesia.

Best wishes.
