Numbness after Liposuction

It takes about 3 months or so after lipo for the areas to feel normal again.  It does not happen suddenly but gradually the areas feel less numb.  Usually all the sensation returns.

Post Liposuction Numbness

Typically, numbness and tingling will subside in 2-4 months after liposuction. I suggest consulting with an expert if you have further concerns. Best, Dr. Emer
