Liposuction - how soon to have the back fusion?
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- Your own plastic surgeon should be the doctor to tell you how long to wait.
- Depending on your recovery, you could have your back surgery in 2 - 3 months.
- As long as your back surgery is not urgently needed, it is reasonable to have the liposuction first.
- Be sure to check with your back surgeon about how long it is safe to wait for your fusion.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring with Fat Grafting
I make my patients wait at least 8-12 weeks before getting any other surgery as there is significant swelling and contour change that occurs after liposuction, especially a hi definition 4D contouring procedure. Best, Dr. Emer.
How much recovery time is needed after Liposuction to have another surgery of the spinal discs?
These two topics are best discussed with your chosen Operating Surgeons. Also, without photos- it's difficult to give the most complete answer.
