I had Smart Lipo done on multiple areas a week ago, and I'm healing nicely. I'm planning to go on a Caribbean vacation in 30 days. Should I be concerned about sun exposure and water activities at this point? Is it too early to go on a vacation?

Sunscreen is very important--ask your surgeon what he recommends
Enjoy your vacation, but please use sunscreen religiously. I recommend the NIA product line at my practice--the sunscreen in this line is fantastic Also, communicate with your physician prior to your vacation and set up another postoperative appointment so that he/she can examine you and make certain you're healing properly. That way, you'll be able to go to the Caribbean with peace of mind.
