Most women have some degree of discomfort with their liposuction because the pain can be so intense. There is one reason why I feel this way and that is because there is no anesthesia involved. With liposuction under the belt, you don’t have to worry about that. But there are other things that could make lipo uncomfortable like a long surgery or sagging skin after surgery. I’ll explain these things here and how to treat them.
When you have liposuction under your belt, there is some pain that comes from the machine gun going over your skin. It can also be anesthetic-related. You have to take it off after the first few sittings just to make sure, so make sure you ask your surgeon if this is a factor in your treatment. After some time, the pain should go away as long as you follow the pre-surgical instructions.
Another reason why you will have skin issues after the surgery is if you had your surgery on your face. Sometimes after surgery, your skin is sensitive because it’s still new on your body. Sometimes it can be more irritated than before. This doesn’t last and will go away once the stitches go down and your skin heals.
A common complaint is swelling. The pain from liposuction sometimes causes facial swelling. You’ll have to decide if you want to have your face lifted or have a compression garment or face lift done right after the surgery.
The final complaint is swelling from fluid build-up that happened during the surgery. Liposuction generally causes bruising, but this is not always the case. Your surgeon will tell you how much bruising will occur, and what type of bruising you will have. It’s rare that your face will bruise after the procedure but if it does happen then you need to contact your surgeon as soon as possible.
You will be able to get all of these liposuction horror stories from your friends and family. They will also be able to tell you how easy it was to get the surgery. In some cases, they may even recommend a certain surgeon that has had a lot of happy patients who say their lips look great today. If you end up having surgery on your lips, make sure you think about all of the risks and how they might affect you. It’s really an unnecessary risk if you have naturally thin lips.
