When can you exercise after lipo?
Excersise After Lipo/SmartLipo
We tell our patients to wait 4 weeks before they continue a rigorous exercise schedule. I have had several patients disregard this recommendation and start at two weeks with no side effects, however I definitely do not recommend this. The reason for the recommendation is due to the healing process, any type of lipo leaves small spaces in the subcutaneous tissue and the compression garment helps seal these spaces. A collection of fluid called a seroma can form in these spaces and when you exercise you mobilize the seal that is forming during the healing process and increase the risk of this complication.Good Luck!Sam Sadler MD
