Post liposuction instruction:
Just after your liposuction procedure, it’s very important for you to ask your liposuction surgeon to provide you written instruction of all the Dos and Don’ts that you have to follow, as most of the times patient leave for their home just after the procedure, so the chances that you might forget certain instruction is very common, such as, how to wear your compression garment, your medication time, activities and diet that you can resume just after the surgery.
Going Back Home after liposuction surgery:
As told above, you can leave for your home, just after your liposuction surgery, and you might feel like that you can drive back home comfortably, but trust us on this one, it would be best to ask someone to accompany from your family or a trusted friend who can drop you back home after the surgery.
The reason we are asking you to do so is because during liposuction surgery you will be given a local anesthesia, so you might feel comfortable, but chances are that you might feel a bit dizzy, and for your own safety it would be best to ask someone to drop you back home after the surgery, and yes one more thing is, do not think of hiring a UBER or OLA back home, yes their services can for sure be trusted, but the drivers can’t.
Care after reaching Home:
Because you are still under the influence of painkiller medication and sedation, you might not feel anything and try to resume to your regular activities, which is fine, but make sure that you don’t get involved in any strenuous activities, because on the day you might not feel it, but it can increase the swelling for the treated area after the surgery.
Best advise is to take partial rest, which involve regular movements, which is actually good for you to improve blood circulation and will help you in quick healing, and one more thing is, that you might experience more pain on the consecutive days than on the day of your liposuction surgery. Additional advice: avoid salt & alcohol.
