After opting for lipo surgery in NYC, patients are given post-treatment instructions and suggestions to bring about the best possible liposuction results. Advancements in treatment practices have brought about effective techniques that can reduce discomfort and enhance your body sculpting or facial rejuvenation results. Certain medications and skin care treatments can reduce post-procedure discomfort, bruising, and swelling, while compression garments and lymphatic massage can improve circulation and enhance healing. Patients have the ability to choose from various pre and post-care treatment packages to ensure substantial liposuction results. For more information regarding our post-treatment options, see below.
At NYC Lipo, we offer certain medications after liposuction treatment to cut down on any pain or discomfort, as well as swelling and bruising. Tylenol is often recommended for patients looking to reduce pain, while products containing Bromelain and Arnica Montana can be used to limit inflammation at the treatment site. These medications are administered in the weeks following your lipo procedure. Various skin care solutions are also offered to promote healing and ensure optimal results, including LED therapy. This light therapy treatment uses advanced technology to improve the appearance of skin and reduce inflammation. A combination of these medications and procedures can be utilized, depending on the nature of your liposuction treatment.
Wearing a compression garment after undergoing lipo surgery in NYC can assist the body’s natural healing process by reducing post-liposuction swelling and improving circulation. These garments provide a tight fit around the treatment area and can be worn underneath your normal attire. Patients can wear their compression garment for lipo during work or while they go about their daily activities. Compression garments are worn in the weeks following liposuction, though the exact length of usage will depend on the patient’s needs. Not all liposuction procedures require the use of a compression garment after treatment. Dr. Levine will discuss if a compression garment is recommended for your specific lipo surgery at our NYC location.
Lymphatic drainage massage after liposuction can promote healing and reduce bruising or inflammation. Lymphatic massage stimulates the body’s lymphatic system. After undergoing liposuction, it is common for pools of fluid, known as lymph, to build up and cause swelling around the treatment area. Opting for lymphatic drainage massage focuses on reducing these buildups to limit swelling and ensure optimal healing. Lymphatic massage after lipo can bring about radiant-looking skin and enhance circulation. Depending on the nature of your liposuction treatment, lymphatic drainage massage may be recommended to maximize your lipo results. Here at NYC Lipo, we offer lymphatic massage to liposuction patients.
