Pre- and Post-Operative Procedures for Liposuction

Liposuction is a type of surgery that removes fatty tissue from certain "problem" areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, back, neck, and chin area. Liposuction shapes these areas, improving their contour and appearance. Liposuction can be performed using various techniques such as tumescent, ultrasound or laser. However, regardless of the technique used, liposuction requires some preparation before and after surgery to ensure a safe and quality result. In this article, we will explain what the pre- and post-operative preparation procedures are for liposuction and how ICOONE LASER can help improve your results.

What are the pre-operative procedures for liposuction?

Before undergoing liposuction, you will need to follow some guidelines to prepare for the surgery. These include:
Have a consultation with your surgeon where you will discuss your goals, expectations, history of the condition, allergies, and medications you are taking. Your surgeon will also examine your problem areas and assess your skin elasticity, fat distribution, and overall health. You will also receive information about the risks, benefits, and alternatives to liposuction.
Certain laboratory tests and investigations such as blood tests, urine tests, electrocardiogram or chest x-ray are required to check your health and rule out any conditions that may affect the surgery.
Stop smoking at least two weeks before surgery, as smoking can impair wound healing and increase the risk of complications.
Avoid taking certain medications and supplements that can increase bleeding or disrupt anesthesia, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, vitamin E or herbal remedies. You should inform your surgeon of all medications and supplements you are taking and follow his or her instructions on when to stop or continue taking them.
Arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery and stay with you the first night. You will not be able to drive or operate machinery for at least 24 hours after surgery.
Be hungry for at least eight hours before surgery. You should not eat or drink, except for a small amount of water to take your medicine.
Shower or bathe the evening or morning before surgery and wash the areas to be treated with antibacterial soap. You should also remove all makeup, jewelry, or contact lenses.
On the day of surgery, wear loose and comfortable clothing and shoes. You should also bring a change of clothes and a towel.

What are the post-operative procedures for liposuction?

After liposuction, you will need to follow some guidelines to take care of yourself and promote a successful recovery.
These include:
Wear a compression garment or place an elastic bandage over the treated areas for several weeks. This will help reduce swelling, bruising and pain, as well as support your skin and improve the shape of your body.
Take painkillers and antibiotics as prescribed by your surgeon. You can also apply ice packs or cold compresses to the treated areas to ease discomfort.
Avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for at least four weeks after surgery. You should also avoid being in the heat, sun, or tanning beds until your bruising disappears.
Drink plenty of fluids and eat a balanced diet rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. This helps prevent dehydration and strengthens your body.
Keep your incision sites clean and dry. You should also avoid applying any creams or lotions on them until they are fully healed.
Visit your surgeon regularly to monitor the progress of improvement and for timely removal of stitches or drainage. You should also report any signs of infection, bleeding, or other complications to your surgeon immediately.
