Female Thigh Liposuction Key Post Operative Instructions

Stubborn, localized fat deposits in the thighs are a common aesthetic concern among most women. Genetics, age, and weight gain are the main factors that cause fat to accumulate in the thighs. Exercise and diet can help to some extent, but often fail to provide the desired results. Female thigh liposuction in New York is an ideal way to get rid of excess fat and skin from the thighs. Performed using the FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex laser-assisted device, the procedure can slim and reshape the thighs and improve the proportions of the lower body.

Smartlipo on thighs can be done on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. The plastic surgeon begins the procedure after marking the treatment site. Laser energy is delivered via the minimally-invasive cannula of the Smartlipo device to target the fat cells. The device features three separate laser wavelengths (1440, 1064 and 1320 nm) that work to liquefy the fat and tighten skin. Once the fat is liquefied, the surgeon will remove it via gentle suction. The top benefits of this high definition liposuction treatment include - short downtime, and minimal pain, bleeding and swelling than conventional surgery.

Post-Operative Instructions

Though laser liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure, proper post-operative care is important to reduce the risk of complications and obtain optimum results. Follow these post-operative care tips for smooth recovery –

• Take complete rest on the day following the procedure.
• Wear the compression garment for a period of up to 6 weeks following the surgery for optimal results.
• Minor swelling and bruising are common after the procedure, and may persist for 2-3 days after the procedure. Use cold compresses during the first 24-48 hours to help keep the swelling to a minimum. Do not apply ice directly to the area.
• Take the prescribed pain medications. Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or any other products unless approved by the surgeon as this may increase the risk of bleeding.
• Avoid lifting, bending, or straining the treated area until complete recovery.
• Do not engage themselves in any vigorous exercises and avoid any significant physical exertion for a minimum of 3 weeks after your surgery.
• Do not smoke or consume alcohol for at least 2 weeks prior to surgery and 2 weeks after surgery. Smoking and alcohol consumption may inhibit blood circulation and lead to severe complications.
• Do not rub, wash or massage the treated area until after you are examined and told it is all right to do so by the surgeon.
• Shower at least once a day. Keep the incisions clean and inspect daily for any signs of infection.
• Make arrangements to have someone drive you home after surgery. Do not drive until you have stopped taking pain medications.
• Arranging for someone to stay with you for the first night after the surgery is highly recommended.

The speed of healing and recovery after the thigh liposuction will differ among patients based on individual considerations. In most cases, final results become evident within 6 months after the procedure. Though results are long lasting, weight gain after the procedure can affect them. So, follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain your results.
