While there’s no perfect time for any medical or cosmetic procedure, some months of the year are more optimal than others. If you are considering liposuction treatment, now is the time to schedule a consultation.
Liposuction is a safe and effective procedure for removing fat deposits from the body that healthy eating and exercise cannot conquer. The procedure itself is short and recovery can be quick. Recovery time depends on the volume of fat cells removed as well as the targeted area. Each patient is different, but can typically expect swelling in the area for a few weeks.
Summer – and bathing suit season – is just around the corner. It’s important to remember that bruising, swelling and soreness in the removal area can last for a few weeks. Scheduling your liposuction now affords plenty of time for your body to rest and recover before the big reveal the first day on the lake or at the pool.
Take advantage of the late-winter/early-spring wardrobe to aid in your healing after liposuction surgery. You’ll be wearing a compression garment to help the skin adhere: Long dresses and loose fitting shirts or pants that cover more skin can help your recovery.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Riou today to discuss whether liposuction is a fat-removal procedure for you to consider.
