Can I get tummy liposuction on a Friday and go back to work following Wednesday?

Most patients are back to work in 2 days after liposuction.
Liposuction and back to work in 5 days
- Depending on your work and the extent of liposuction, going back to work in 5 days may be reasonable.
- Please be sure this is the right treatment -
- Usually after a liposuction there is loose skin which also needs to be removed.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Thank you for your question.
With tumescent liposuction because you are awake during the procedure, our patients are up and walking same day. Depending on the number of areas, our patients are back to work within a few days. This is different from liposuction with general anesthesia where recovery can take up to a week or more.
I recommend you do an in person consultation to discuss treatment options and post operative care.
Best of luck with your procedure.

Liposuction and return to work
See a plastic surgeon for a consult, however. If it is skin excess that is to blame for the bulge and not fat, you are more likely to be a candidate for a tummy tuck and patients are typically off work for 2 weeks following that surgery.
Best of luck to you!
