I have patients refrain from exercise for 6 weeks, but your surgeon may have different recommendations.

Liposuction Preparation, What to do?

Your physician should have a very clear description of what you should be doing 2-4 weeks prior to your procedure.  I suggest speaking to them to optimize your outcome.  Dr. Emer.

Reviewing lipo care

These are all excellent questions, but each surgeon might have different instructions and you should ask your surgeon what he specifically recommends.

Hi.  These are all very basic issues & questions that your surgeon and his staff should have already reviewed with you during the consultation appointment, and honestly, I'm a little surprised that this hasn't been done already.  There's way too much to review here.

Call them for a pre-operative appointment to review these questions.  If they say "we'll do that on the day of surgery", then you need to re-think your plan.


Best,

Maybe you need a pre op IN PERSON visit with your chosen surgeon to discuss ALL your questions. You think? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
