The most common mistakes people make after liposuction are:

  • Not following the doctor’s instructions. This is the most important thing you can do to ensure a safe and successful recovery. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions about taking medications, wearing compression garments, and avoiding strenuous activity.
  • Not drinking enough fluids. It is important to stay hydrated after liposuction. Drink plenty of water and other fluids to help your body flush out the toxins and fluids that are released during the procedure.
  • Not getting enough rest. Your body needs time to heal after liposuction. Get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activity for at least two weeks.
  • Not wearing compression garments. Compression garments help to reduce swelling and bruising. Be sure to wear them as instructed by your doctor.
  • Exercising too soon. It is important to give your body time to heal before you start exercising again. Avoid strenuous activity for at least two weeks.
  • Not eating a healthy diet. Eating a healthy diet will help you maintain your weight loss and reduce the risk of sagging skin.
  • Not being patient. It takes time for the swelling and bruising to go away. Don’t expect to see the final results of liposuction for several weeks or months.

If you follow your doctor’s instructions and take care of yourself after liposuction, you can help ensure a safe and successful recovery and get the best results possible.
