How Soon After Liposuction Will I Be Able to See Results?

LiposuctionDealing with stubborn fat deposits can be frustrating, especially when neither dieting nor exercising does anything to help. Thankfully, there are alternative options that can help you achieve the contoured look you desire. Liposuction can help you achieve your desired body by suctioning fat away from trouble areas and contouring them. If you are contemplating scheduling a liposuction consultation, you may wonder how long it will take to see results. Here is what you need to know.

How Long It Takes to See Results After Liposuction

Liposuction does not present instant results. Instead, it can take one to three months to begin looking toned and trimmer.

Why Does It Take This Long to See Results?

Although there is a delay in seeing results, it does not mean the liposuction was not effective. It takes one to three months for your body to show the full extent of the lipo contouring because your skin must first adjust.

The less fat you have removed, the quicker this adjustment period usually is. For instance, if you have one area liposuctioned, you could see results in about 30 days. However, if you have large areas treated or several areas, you will wait upward of three months.

How Come I Don’t See Any Results from Liposuction?

If you recently received the procedure, you might have residual swelling. This can last for up to three weeks, making your face or body look larger than it really is.

Additionally, the area where you received the procedure might retain more fluid, which can also change the appearance.

Our surgeon will recommend how to manage the swelling after your procedure. Cold packs can help, as can wearing compression garments. Cut salt out of your diet as well.
