It is normal to be tired after having Smartlipo. Rest up and drink lots of fluids, if you do not feel yourself within a few days contact your doctor.
Tired After Smart Lipo - is This Normal?
Doctor Answers (5)
Smart Lipo is very well tolerated
Having said that, any surgery requires the body to expend additional energy to heal. Also the water retained from the smart lipo will still be with you in the first several days. This can make you feel a little bloated, and not quite as energetic as you will be once it has all cleared away.
Its all normal, so you can enthusiastically look forward to your results in the upcoming weeks..
During pre-operative visits we always tell patients to expect to be more tired than normal after surgery. While your body is healing we recommend for them to eat high protein diet and drink Ensure Light with extra protein. Do not drink sports drinks because they are very high in sodium and that will cause you to swell more.
