Cryotherapy to help liposuction healing
Thank you for asking about your liposuction and cryotherapy
You should not have any cryotherapy without the knowledge and approval of your surgeon who is responsible for your healing. Early cryotherapy can create problems in healing.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
It is not a good idea to do any therapy except lymphatic drainage in the early post op period, you can do more damage than good.
Cryotherapy after liposuction
Cryotherapy after liposuction is okay as long as the wounds are healed. Recommend waiting at least 3 weeks prior to treatment.
