Does it hurt?
Majority of liposuction patients have said it is not painful, as you are given mild sedation which is administered by an Anaesthetist which is like a twilight sleep. You may feel some discomfort for 24 hours, but this can be reduced with generic painkillers like Panadol.
How long do I wear the support garment?
After surgery a support garment should be worn night and day for the first two weeks, but can be removed for showers. Tight clothing like jeans or underpant, that are tight around the waist and may irritate the areas should not be worn for one month, as they will leave a demarcation line when the loose skin repairs or heals.
Do I need time off work?
This general depends on the patient, as some patients have gone back to work the following day but this depends on the tenderness of the area where the liposuction occurred. We recommend one week of rest before returning to work but it is not compulsory.
