Massage after liposuction
- If your post-liposuction massage hurts, don't do it.
- A rolling pin rolled up and down the area may be best.
- Tender nodules on the sides are common. Pain can be helped with an injection of local anesthesia and dilute steroid.
I typically tell my patients that they will start seeing results 4-6 weeks post surgery. After two weeks, you are likely still swollen. You can also start massaging the areas treated to help any residual swelling. Small circular motions to start and massage deeper if it you don't have any discomfort. If you have discomfort contact your surgeon
