Life After Liposuction: Aftercare Tips

Whether you’ve had liposuction here at our Manchester skin clinic, or you’re interested in trying the treatment at some point in the future, our skilled and dedicated team are always on hand to support you. Whatever procedure you have with Skin Doctor, a key part is aftercare – so not only will you boost healing time and minimise side-effects, but you’ll also be able to enjoy your fantastic results for longer.  In this post, we’ll focus on aftercare tips following liposuction treatment.

Types of Liposuction

Before getting into details about aftercare, it’s worth knowing that there are lots of types of liposuction you can try. From fat-busting 3D Lipomed, to fat-freezing Cryolipolysis, we offer a range of treatments here at Skin Doctor skin clinic, Manchester. We can also use vacuum dermology to minimise dimples left by cellulite, cavitation to help define and contour the body, and Aqualyx fat-dissolving injections. Following a consultation, our team will be able to advise on the best option for you.

Treating Swelling

A common side-effect following liposuction is swelling at the treated areas. A cold compress can work wonders in bringing the swelling down, cooling and soothing the area and providing instant relief. You may also see some slight redness, which again, can be soothed with the compress.

Treating Pain

If you have any pain, over-the-counter medicines, such as paracetamol and ibuprofen, may be able to help. If pain is severe or you’re concerned, get in touch with us straight away. Our team is here to help support you through every aspect of your treatment and to give you complete peace of mind.

Maintaining Results

As with most things in life, eating and exercising well have enormous body-boosting benefits. Likewise, drinking a lot of alcohol and smoking can have the opposite effect. With liposuction and other fat-treating procedures, it’s worth remembering that fat can creep up again if you have a poor diet or exercise program.

Future Treatments

Some liposuction treatments require a number of sessions to ensure the best results. We’ll be able to talk you through this during the consultation stage, and advise on what might be appropriate for you and the results you’re expecting. As the old saying goes, good things come to those who wait!
