We hope that your consultation generates more questions and a lot of excitement and anticipation. We are here to help you sail through the liposuction process. Call us with any questions. Some can be answered over the phone, but at other times, meeting again with Dr. Lee in person is the best way to move forward. When you are ready to proceed, a call to the office will get you on Dr. Lee’s operating schedule.
At least one more preoperative visit will be scheduled one to two weeks before the surgery. At this appointment, Dr. Lee will review the surgical plan, provide you with written information to get you set for recovery, and write your prescriptions so your medications will be ready. This will be a great time for her to answer any remaining questions.
Rest is an absolute requirement.
You will need assistance for the first few days, and help around the house for about two weeks. During your time off, you must focus on your own care; sleep as soon as you are tired, eat as soon as you are hungry. Your recovery will be smoother with good self-care.
Each patient heals differently. You will see Dr. Lee frequently after surgery to make sure that you are recovering as well as possible. She will help guide your return to heavy lifting, exercising and other activities as you progress, to get you back to your usual routine safely and as quickly as possible.
