The Liposuction Recovery Process

If you’ve been trying to lose excess fat through diet and exercise and just can’t seem to shake those last few pounds of fat, you may be an ideal candidate for liposuction. During liposuction, our Sevierville plastic surgeon, Dr. Dean Kleto, will use a variety of techniques to remove this excess fat.

Liposuction can be performed to the following areas: Liposuction Recovery - Tennessee Plastic Surgeon - Dr. Kleto

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Chest (for gynecomastia)
  • Neck and face
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Thighs

When you schedule your consultation appointment with Dr. Kleto, he will help you determine which areas would be best for liposuction.

After your procedure, recovery from liposuction is a relatively quick process. Usually, you can return to work within a few days and within a few weeks you can get back to your normal activities. Recovery usually will include the following:

  • Wearing a compression garment
  • Taking pain medications per Dr. Kleto’s suggestions
  • Taking anti-inflammatory medications per Dr. Kleto’s suggestions
  • Mild walking to reduce swelling
  • Avoid smoking
  • Adopt a healthy lifestyle and diet
