Laser Liposuction Post Operative Care

February 17, 2017

Laser Liposuction

Laser liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove excess of fat from your body. Laser liposuction mainly helps your cosmetic surgeons to target specific body parts that were difficult to access with traditional cosmetic surgeries. “Laser liposuction” is also called as liposculpture and laser lipolysis.

During this liposuction surgery procedure a cannula is used that houses a laser that will melt the fat in the target area. Once the fat is completely liquefied, it is drained from your body using tiny incisions or by gentle suction. This laser liposuction procedure is considered gentler when compared to other liposuction techniques.

Liposuction Post Operative Care Instructions

Liposuction surgery in Delhi is a common cosmetic surgical procedure for which after care is required. You need to keep in my mind the following instructions post surgery for better results.

  1. Travelling

You should not drive soon after the surgery and it is recommended to have a responsible attendant with your on the day of surgery to drive your back home.

  1. Diet

If your cosmetic surgeon has used local anesthesia for the surgery then you can resume back to your normal diet immediately. Try to increase the liquids in your diet to keep yourself hydrated. You can include fruit juices or soft drinks and water in your daily diet to prevent dehydration. You should avoid alcohol soon after the surgery for minimum 48 hours. It is recommended to avoid alcohol 48 hours before and after the surgery.

  1. Physical Activity

Rest is required for the first few hours after any cosmetic surgery. You should avoid driving and avoid using hazardous machinery for at least 18 hours after the surgery. Physical exertion must be avoided in the first few hours.

You may go for a walk if desired in the evening but it is better if you start physical activities the next day of the surgery. You can resume exercise in 2-4 days after the surgery and it is recommended to begin with 25% of your normal workout and increase as tolerated.  There is a risk of sore and fatigue in the first few weeks.

  1. Elastic compression garments

Special post operative garments will be available that should be worn after tumescent liposuction of thighs or hips. Torso garment with an adjustable elastic binger is used after tumescent liposuction of abdomen, waist, hips, flanks and breasts. The post operative garments are designed to be used with super-absorbent pads that help in providing firm compression to promote maximum residual drainage of residual blood-tinged anesthetic solution.

Till the drainage is stopped, you need to wear these garments for 24 hours. Usually drainage occurs for about a week in most of the cases.

  1. Wound care and Bathing

You need to keep your incisions clean to avoid the risk of infections. You can take shower once or twice daily. You can wash your incisions gently with soap and water and then pat dry with a clean towel. You don’t have to use absorbent pads when an incision has ceased draining.

  1. Temperature elevation

Temperature elevation is a natural reaction of your body to surgical trauma. You can take medication as prescribed by your doctor.

  1. Menstrual irregularities

Menstrual irregularities are a possible side effect after liposuction surgery. The irregularities may occur for a month or so after the surgery and may get back to normal after a month. In case if the menstrual irregularities continues, you can consult the doctor.
