Dear Denise43,

It truly is variable in terms of how long patients can take to heal from liposuction and it varies from doctor to doctor.

I can tell you what typically goes on with my patients. I would say that in 90 percent of my patients they have little to no bruising, and for the 10 percent of my patients that get bruising, it tends to resolve in about two weeks.

Most of my patients are able to go back to work in two days and are pretty much able to get back into their exercise routine within one to two weeks. Rarely do I have a patient that is very sore and stiff several weeks later. Sometimes this can go on if there is a lot of trauma during the surgery or possibly if there has been a lot of irritation to the skin from the liposuction procedure. One thing I can say to reassure you, this almost for sure will get better over time. Massage can help to soften up some of the stiffness and any potential slight scar tissue underneath the skin as well as help to reduce the soreness.

Basically, I recommend that you be patient, do some massage and if areas are sore, possibly take an anti-inflammatory over the counter medication.
