HGH and Liposuction Recovery

HGH, or any other endocrinologic inducement, has no proven benefit on expediting liposuction recovery. Do not confuse the injury and recovery process of muscle breakdown with traumatized subcutaneous fat tissues. With a small area of liposuction, there is no going to be any prolonged delay before being able to return to some level of exercise.

you should be able to get back into the gym after liposuction within 3 days. the recovery from the procedure for small volumes is not long or complicated

HGH to accelerate healing after liposuction is unnecessary and irresponsible.

Liposuction for the most part is a simple and safe operation with quick recovery. There's no reason to try to tamper by using your body is a pharmacy.

Not a good idea;  best to avoid unproven  modalities to “speed up” the natural recovery process.

 Best wishes.

This will not speed up your recovery. Depending upon the nature of the competition, it may make you ineligible if they do any drug testing. All the best.

I will be more vehement than my fellow surgeons in telling you to not do anything crazy! HGH will not speed up or in any way affect your recovery and may have adverse effects upon the rest of your body including abnormal skeletal growth (increase in jaw and forehead and digit size). Be smart with your body; it is the only one you have.

There is no way to speed up recovery after liposuction. It takes time for normal healing to occur. Skip the hGH.
