Many of us can relate to the desire to shed a few extra pounds from the midsection with a liposuction treatment, especially as the holiday season approaches. But how long should you expect to be out of commission after your surgery, and what should you expect during the liposuction healing process?

Patients are generally allowed to return home the same day as the surgery. Dr. Alexander Golger will provide a list of instructions for your liposuction healing. Following Dr. Golger’s advice for recovery is always the best way to prevent complications.

Medication for pain will be prescribed to assist with any discomfort. A follow-up visit is customary in the days after the procedure, and most patients are up and back to work in under a week.
