Smartlipo Recovery and Results
It’s only natural to want to know what’s next after your treatment and when you can expect to start enjoying your results. In short, the Smartlipo™ procedure is brief and you can get on with your life quickly with minimal downtime. Our Raleigh Smartlipo patients are often surprised how soon they can begin to see a better body contour – many of our patients report a fast recovery and fantastic results.
Minimize Recovery Time
People who choose a Smartlipo procedure by itself are often amazed by how easy their recovery is. If you’re like most of our patients, you’ll be sent home just a few hours after your treatment, and you’ll be back to your usual routine and back to work in 1 to 2 days. If you have a large area of fat removed with Smartlipo, recovery will be slightly longer.
Another benefit of the treatment is minimal discomfort. Minor bruising and numbness may last for a few days and swelling will gradually subside, revealing your final results. Any discomfort you have during the first day or two can be controlled with prescription medication.
Get Satisfying Results
Quite often, it’s the little things that matter. And with those bothersome fat deposits long gone, you’re likely to feel a whole lot better about how you look. You should begin seeing results in about a week with the full benefits revealed after several months. To encourage healthy healing and protect the treated area, you will need to wear a compression garment for a short period of time. You also need to avoid vigorous massage and strenuous exercise for several weeks. Once you schedule your procedure, your surgeon will give you more detailed instructions to follow during the recovery period.
Your treatment permanently eliminates fat cells, meaning that if you gain weight in the future, fat will be deposited primarily in untreated areas. Smartlipo incisions are very small and in most cases patients do not have noticeable scarring. Your Raleigh liposuction surgeon will hide incisions in inconspicuous locations or skin folds whenever possible. A slimmer profile with little to no scarring – what more could be better?
