When you can resume work after liposuction
Before and after liposuction, your surgeon will tell you about the dos and don’ts that are associated with the surgery. The main recovery period usually takes two weeks, but it can go on for months. However, this period varies from patient to patient. There would be pain, discomfort and swelling.
Within the first days after surgery, you would be advised to perform light activities to ensure that you will regain normal blood circulation. There would be walking with a recommended time and interval, there would be prescriptions for the pain as well. The bruising and swelling can last up to a month, that’s why it’s highly recommended to avoid doing strenuous activities.
Now, when it comes to getting back to your work, it is mostly advised to take a leave during the critical two-week period depending on your body’s ability to heal. If you have an office job, you can resume earlier than those that do heavy physical activities when it comes to their work, depending on the endorsement of the surgeon.
There are after-effects that can last for months like bruising and swelling, but you have to understand that you have a life to resume after the surgery. Just follow the advice of your surgeon and observe the healing process of your body. This is where you can know if you can resume to your work or not.
