Liposuction Recovery Time

Are you considering liposuction but have questions about the recovery time and how long it will take to heal from the procedure? Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as he explains the timeframe for healing after receiving a liposuction treatment.

The recovery after liposuction will really depend on what the extent of the removal of the fat. If we’re taking just small amounts, say, underneath the chin or on the love handles, usually within a few days, patients are feeling pretty good and they can get back to their light activity. If we’re doing more extensive liposuction, such as on the abdomen and legs, the recovery will be longer.
