How Long After Surgery Will I See the Results of My Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the plastic surgery procedures that provides Omaha patients with immediate results. Results are evident immediately after surgery and continuously improve as you heal. Once the swelling goes down in the first week after surgery, you will notice more dramatic improvement until your final results at about three or four months after surgery.
Why Does It Take Three to Four Months to See the Full Results of Liposuction?
Omaha patients are happy with the results of their liposuction, but often ask why it takes time to see the final results. Remember that your body needs time to heal from surgery and return to its normal state. In the case of liposuction, it takes time for the swelling to go away completely.
Your skin will also need time to contract. Some patients have more loose skin than others and may want to consider a tummy tuck to completely resculpt their body.
Alternatives to Surgical Liposuction
At Westfield Plastic Surgery Center, we understand that some of our patients don’t have the time to recover from surgery. For these patients, we suggest Coolscultping.
Coolsculpting is performed in our office and requires no downtime. The procedure takes under an hour and works by:
- Targeting specific areas by gently applying an applicator.
- Cooling fat cells to cause cell death.
It does take time to see the results of Coolsculpting and should only be used for Omaha patients who have small areas of fat on their love handles, abdomen, and arms.
