Liposuction Recovery Time: What to Expect

Not all liposuction procedures are created equal. Some liposuction practitioners promise great results, but the down time is extensive. Others promise a quick recovery, but the results are less than exciting. At The LipoSurgery Clinic, we know how valuable both time and results are for our patients. Dr. Kimberly Finder is one of the foremost liposuction physicians in the country, and one of the first to bring SlimLipo™ to the U.S.

How Does SlimLipo™ Improve Recovery Time?

Because SlimLipo™ works at a different wavelength from other lasers, it truly targets fat cells, giving Dr. Finder more fat melting power than ever before. Working at 924 nm laser energy, the SlimLipo™ laser liquefies more fat while simultaneously delivering 975 nm to stimulate water within the skin. This helps tighten the skin during the healing process, and the two wavelengths together affect the blood vessels, diminishing bruising after the procedure.

The superior fat melting, SlimLipo™ makes it easier for Dr. Finder to remove the fat during the procedure. This improved process of fat removal means the procedure is gentler, and therefore ideal for the tumescent method of liposuction under local anesthetic. With the tumescent method, Dr. Finder injects a saline-based lidocaine solution to numb the areas being treated, and then gently suctions away the fat the SlimLipo™ laser has melted. The procedure is less invasive, and without general anesthetic, the patient spends less time in the clinic.

Better Recovery for a Better You

Thanks to the easier fat extraction, the patient experiences less trauma to the tissues, and less bruising, reducing swelling and inflammation and resulting in an easier recovery and a more speedy return to normal activities. Because of the local anesthesia, the risks associated with general anesthesia are also eliminated. As an outpatient procedure, most patients return to work within a few days, and resume all normal activities within 1-2 weeks. The outcome varies by patient and the amount of fat removed, and Dr. Finder will be there every step of the way to discuss your expectations and results that come with your new body shape.

Dr. Finder not only listened to me and provided me with education and information I haven’t received from other dermatologists, but she also properly diagnosed what I have! I am so grateful for her time and expertise!
