When should drains be removed after Tumescent Liposuction?
Doctor Answers 3
Thank you for your question. We do not use drains for liposuction. For other procedures when we use drains that amount in 24 hours would be acceptable to remove a drain. Please follow up with your plastic surgeon prior to removing any drains since he was the one that did the surgery and knows best.
I do not use drains with just liposuction, but would suggest calling your doctor first and discussing how much longer you need drains.
Speak to Your Doctor
I would suggest calling and to speaking to your surgeon about your concerns. For your aftercare, I do recommend adding RF treatments (Venus Legacy, Exilis, Ultra, Vanquish) along with shock/vibration therapy Cellutone/z wave and hyperbaric oxygen and compression in order to decrease swelling and improve results. Best, Dr. Emer
