Risks

You may be able to return to work in just a few days. In many instance, you can resume most of your normal activities within one or two weeks and begin some form of exercise soon after. The timing of your recovery depends largely on the extent of your surgery.

Understanding Risks

The subject of risks and potential complications of surgery is best discussed on a personal basis between you and Dr. Stewart, or with a staff member.

Some of the potential complications that may be discussed with you include bleeding, infection and reactions to anesthesia. Blood accumulations under the skin are possible, but these normally resolve themselves and rarely require removal. While numbness of the skin following liposuction is almost always temporary, it is possible for some lack of sensation to persist or for skin discoloration to appear in treated areas. Contour irregularities including depressions or wrinkling of the skin can result in some patients, but treatments are usually available to help minimize these problems if they occur.

How should I prepare for surgery?

If you are a smoker, you will be asked to stop smoking well in advance of surgery. Aspirin can cause increased bleeding, so you should avoid taking these medications for a period of time before surgery. Dr. Stewart will provide you with additional preoperative instructions at your consultation.

Depending on the extent of your surgery you may need to donate blood prior to surgery. You will go under a general anesthesia, therefore you will need someone to drive you home afterwards and to stay with you at least the first night.
