Ask anyone in Minnesota what their favorite season is and its a pretty good chance they’ll answer “summer.” After what feels like an entire year of winter, when the sun comes out, so do the Minnesotan’s! One of the most popular things to do around town is hit the lakes, and whether it be for swimming, boating, tanning, or playing sports – chances are you’re going to want a beach body worthy of showing off… don’t worry, that’s where liposuction comes in.
Land of 10,000 Hotties
Minneapolis liposuction is incredibly popular, and more and more are looking to the procedure to help them get the body they want. Luckily liposuction results can be seen right away, and after a brief recovery period can be flaunted for years – once fat is removed from an area, it can’t return to the same place again! The Land of Ice and Snow turns into the Land of 10,000 Hotties when the thermostat starts to climb, so make the right choice and get liposuction before the season is over.
Racing the Clock
Liposuction in Minneapolis involves a similar recovery period to most other traditional cosmetic surgery procedures. While you will be able to resume normal daily activities within a day or two after surgery, you should avoid strenuous activities or exercise for a full two weeks after surgery. This means that hitting up Lake Calhoun for a Frisbee game should wait at least a couple of weeks after you undergo your liposuction procedures. Here are a few other notes on your recovery:
- During the first week, compression garments are left in place, and the patient will be restricted to sponge-bathes.
- Sutures are removed after one week, and the compression garment(s) can be removed and laundered (as the patient gently showers), after which compression is reapplied full-time (except when bathing) for a total of two weeks or until bruising is gone.
- Most patients will end up wearing compression garments for about three weeks total.
Because your overall results won’t be 100% flaunt-able right away, you may want to refer to this information when setting your surgery timetable.
