Recovery – What to expect from the End Results
SmartLipo results are visible immediately; and the patient’s body shape will continue to improve over a period of several months*. SmartLipo promotes tissue coagulation resulting in tissue tightening*. One of the greatest benefits of SmartLipo is that it provides long lasting results*. Since adults do not produce new fat cells, if a patient gains weight, the existing fat cells just expand so the new weight will be distributed in different parts of the body; and not the area that was treated*.
How Long Does the Pain Last After Liposuction?
Again, depending on the amount of work you have done, the type of liposuction performed, and the type of anesthesia used, the length of time pain lasts varies. Most liposuction procedures – particularly at our Liposuction AZ clinic – are performed with only a local anesthetic, which leads to about two days of mild to moderate pain after the local anesthetic wears off. The wearing off process can take from 12 to 24 hours. By the day after your procedure, you may be feeling tenderness or soreness in your muscles, similar to the pain you feel when you overdo it at the gym or a mild sunburn. This day will be the most painful, with pain reducing gradually over the next 7 to 10 days. Over the counter medication should be sufficient for helping you get past the initial stages.
