Exercising After Tumescent Liposuction: Is It Safe?
Many cosmetic surgeons will provide you with a detailed recovery plan that includes specific instructions on when and how you can start exercising after your liposuction. It’s important you follow the instructions and wait until recovery is complete before you resume exercise.
Once you have been cleared to exercise by your cosmetic surgeon, it is recommended that you start slowly and gradually increase your activity level. This will help your body adjust to the changes and reduce the risk of complications.
Tips for those ready to start exercising after liposuction:
2. Avoid high-impact exercises: High-impact exercises, such as running and jumping, can put a lot of strain on your body and can be too strenuous. Avoid these exercises until you have fully recovered and have been cleared by your surgeon.
3. Wear a compression garment: Wearing a compression garment during exercise can help reduce swelling and will support your skin as it adjusts to its new shape.
4. Listen to your body: It is important to listen to your body and not push yourself too hard. If you experience pain or discomfort during exercise, stop immediately and consult with your cosmetic surgeon.
Typical Exercise Timeline After Liposuction
The typical exercise timeline varies depending on the extent of your procedure and the areas treated.
Week 2: Full exercise can be resumed at 2 weeks. Squats, dumbbell rows, and sit-up variations can be done as the body’s healing process continues. More intense activities like yoga, running, and sports are encouraged to help to maintain your liposuction results.
