One of the advantages of doing Laser Lipo under local anesthesia is the short recovery time. There is no hangover from general anesthesia and the local anesthesia solution and laser reduce the amount of bleeding, bruising and swelling. Most of our patients are able to go back to work in 3-4 days. Good luck.
I am a hairstylist, so I am in my feet all day. How long before I can go back to work?

Downtime after Laser Lipo
Laser liposuction under local anesthesia allows you to be back on your feet immediately. You can go back to work as soon as you feel up to it, even 1-2 days!
