Thank you for asking about your liposuction.

  • The best person to ask is your own surgeon, because it depends on how much fat is being removed and your general health.
  • However usually a person could return to work from home after 2-3 days, to work in an office in 3-5 days and to travel for work┬áin 7-14. depending on how far the travel takes you.

Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes, Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD
