How will it take to recover after lipoplasty?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Recovery time varies for different patients. Some people who undergo lipoplasty (liposuction) go back to work within days of surgery, and most usually start to feel better a week or two after surgery. Swelling and skin discoloration can persist for months, but they usually diminish by the end of the third week. Someone who has had a lipoplasty procedure won't be ready for vigorous exercise for at least a month. By the six-month mark, the body should be entirely recovered and settled into its new shape.
