What can I expect during recovery from Smart Lipo?
Among the more important values to selecting Smart Lipo is its rapid recovery cycle. In fact most patients walk into the office of their physician, receive the treatment, and simply walk out when done. No prolonged recovery time. No hospital time.
When talking about recovery time there are two ways of looking at this question. With many traditional liposuction methods there are two recovery phases. The recovery time required after undergoing a general anesthetic procedure. An hour or two that it takes for the general anesthetic to wear off and for your body to become responsive to its environment. Then there is a second recovery period. The time it takes for you to get back on your feet and resume normal activity. This secondary recovery time can take anywhere from 3 – 4 weeks or longer.
With traditional liposuction surgery there is a recovery period of 2 – 3 weeks. There are dressings to be changed; often there is pain medication involved. You will need to take valuable time from your busy schedule to get back on your feet.
With Smart Lipo there is a very limited amount of time required for recovery. Usually no more than one or two days. No stitches, bleeding, and most importantly little or no pain. Since there are no large incisions, scarring and the possibility of infe0ction is considerably less that with the more traditional methods.
The shortened recovery time required by Smart Lipo is one of the main reasons people are choosing this procedure over the more traditional methods of liposuction. When considering recovery time Smart Lipo is the smart choice.
