Having Liposuction is a real surgery and caring for children a few days later is not ideal. You will not be able to hold your babies for at least 3 weeks. You do not want to accumulate any seroma because of you activities. I would look to have someone help you for a little longer. You will be very sore after the surgery.

We perform many Hidef lipo procedures at our facility and I always instruct my patients that they will be out of commission for 7-10 days after the procedure. It is very difficult to care for young children after true hidef lipo procedure. The procedure is an all or nothing procedure and should include the entire torso from hip to shoulders and not just the abdomen for proper results. Given the extent of the procedure and extensive daily post-lipo care required, caring for young children and pets is very difficult and we do not recommend it. Additionally, I recommend strong narcotic
