What you should know about liposuction

Although liposuction is generally a pain free procedure, like any surgery, it does come with some risks. Once you speak to a board certified plastic surgeon and have gained approval for liposuction, your Dr. will explain the risks associated to this procedure.

Most patients report some minor pain and tenderness for 2-3 weeks after surgery. And most patients are able to return to work and limited activities within a week after surgery.
