The great thing about smartlipo is that you can get back to normal very quickly. We encourage our patients to resume normal activities including exercise as soon as they can tolerate it. Exercise will help your swelling resolve faster and improve your results.
After Smartlipo i let my patients do everything after 5 days

Exercise after Liposuction
I encourage all of my patients to move and exercise as much as possible after liposuction. In your case, however, you had fat transferred to the buttock area, which you don't want to loose. If you expend calories exercising, make sure that you increase your caloric intake to avoid losing the transferred fat. Stretching and toning will help improve your final result.
Post Liposuction--Exercise, Massage
Hi and thank you for your question. In my opinion I suggest doing whatever exercise you feel comfortable with doing. If it starts to hurt, don't do it. I encourage my patients to get up and walk the same day of surgery, increasing the walking as much as they can to slowly getting back into exercise, usually cardio is the best option for swelling purposes but as you feel better you may absolutely get back into lifting weights. I would say hold off on the heavy weights and be reasonable but it is great that you are in the mindset of keeping the body you have post surgery. Best regards, Dr. Berger
