I recommend avoiding smoking, and anyone who smokes, and drinking alcohol at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after surgery. Do drink plenty of water and eat a proper diet of fruits, vegetables and protein. Do avoid high salty foods and drinks. also exercise, least walking, is beneficial. also, please wear your compression garments as instructed.
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- Don't drink alcohol or smoke anything for 1 - 2 weeks in advance.
- Avoid high salt foods.
- Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
- Get daily exercise of 30 - 40 minutes, even if it's just walking.
Always see a Board

Liposuction results vary on multiple different factors. The biggest factor would be who is performing the procedure -- their technique, skill, and experience. Post liposuction, massage, RF treatments and hyperbaric oxygen will drastically reduce swelling. I suggest seeking a board certified cosmetic dermatologist and following his/her pre and post operative protocol. Best, Dr. Emer
The most important decision is choosing the right Board certified Plastic Surgeon. Follow their pre-operative and post-operative instructions
