Body Sculpting Aftercare Instructions

Body contouring, often referred to as body sculpting, can be used to get rid of extra fat, restructure certain body regions, and tighten up loose skin. Utilizing methods like cold, heat, and lasers, lipolysis is a non-invasive option. Contrarily, surgical procedures including tucks, lifts, and liposuction have higher risks and longer recovery times but usually result in more obvious results.

What does place following body contouring?

The majority of surgical procedures allow patients to go home the same day. However, it’s crucial to make arrangements for someone to transport you home following surgery and stay with you the first night. You might also need a thin tube placed close to one or more incisions to aid with fluid drainage and lessen swelling.

You will get recuperation instructions from your surgical team that might include the following topics:

Drink More Water

Try to drink around half your body weight in ounces of water each day for the first three days following the surgery. This will help to maintain your body hydrated and facilitate the ultrasound treatment’s breakdown of lipids and glycerides, making it simpler for your body to metabolize and remove them.

Avoid Drinking Alcohol

It is advised to abstain from alcohol from 1 to 3 days prior to the therapy as well as for 3 days (72 hours) thereafter. This is due to the fact that alcohol’s metabolism can prevent fat cells from being metabolically broken down and eliminated from the treated region.

Massage Therapy

Use your fingertips to massage the treatment region for around 10 minutes after the procedure. This will make it easier for fat to be eliminated from the treated region by encouraging the metabolic breakdown of broken-down fat cells.

Physical Activity

After the treatment, move around for 15 to 30 minutes every day for the following three days, whether it be walking, cycling, swimming, or doing some sort of muscle training. This will aid in promoting metabolism and removing broken-down fat cells from the treated region.

Medical Team Instructions

Your surgical team will provide you with recuperation instructions after your treatment, which may include the following:

  •       Replacing the bandages and taking care of the drains.
  •       Remaining active but avoiding strenuous activities to avoid blood clots.
  •       Reporting any problems so that they may be addressed and you can be informed.
  •       Avoiding being in the sun.
  •       Using a prescription drug to treat pain and lower the risk of infection (such as creams or tablets).

When it comes to nonsurgical body sculpting, you may frequently return to your usual daily activities right away after the surgery and leave the clinic or office without the need for transportation home.

How long does it take for body sculpting to heal?

Depending on the scope of the treatment and the size of the incisions created, the recovery time for surgical procedures might range from a few weeks to a few months.

The recuperation durations for nonsurgical treatments, however, are often substantially shorter. Many patients are able to return to their usual jobs and other activities right away after the procedure.
