Liposuction is a safe, popular, and effective way to contour the body. Patients who undergo liposuction should understand the recovery process that follows this surgery. They may experience swelling, bruising, and alterations in the sensation of the area that have been treated. Iranian Surgery surgeons provide all our patients with a special and tight compression garment that will help reduce the amount of swelling and provide support and comfort for the patient. It’s normal to feel pain and discomfort in the early stages following a liposuction. You are still in the early healing process and should expect the swelling as well as the discomfort continue to go away.

It is not uncommon for patients to have changes in sensation after liposuction that usually gets better over the first 4-6 weeks as the swelling subsides and the body heals. Severe pain is unusual but slightly more common with ultrasonic or laser lipolysis techniques where fat removal is less specific. (There is a fat layer over the sensory nerves that may be impacted by these devices). we recommend that you follow closely with your doctor to make sure the pain is not from anything else (i.e infection, fluid collection, to name a few).
It is extremely rare for a patient to experience serious and persistent pain. but in case you have unusual symptoms, there are a few medications you could ask your surgeon about for the short term. Lyrica, neurontin, and nortriptyline may help with “neuropathic” pain that is often unrelieved by narcotic pain medicine. Chances are that you will only have to take one of these for a short time, until your body heals.

It is often normal for patients to experience a burning sensation as the nerves regrow after liposuction. This normally takes a number of weeks and occasionally months to improve. Certainly, keeping the skin hydrated helps to relieve the discomfort. Our surgeons often suggest that patients rub and massage the areas to desensitize the skin a bit (and this also helps work out those little lumps) and to wear spanx or a similar garment. The garment supporting the skin can also sometimes help relieve the discomfort. This could be worn all of the time, just at night, or just when the burning sensation is worse.
