  • Precautions to be taken in liposuction surgery.

    I have mentioned these few points which should be taken care of:
    • Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages for 48 hours before surgery and 48 hours after surgery
    • Drink adequate amounts of water, fruit juices or soft drinks to prevent dehydration
    • Do not drive for atleast 18 hours after the surgery
    • Special Compression garments should be worn after the surgery
    • For the first 24 to 48 hours, bulky super-absorbent pads are worn overlying the treated areas, and under the compression garments
    • After most of the drainage has stopped, patients need only place absorbent pads over the incision sites that continue to drain
    • Keep incisions clean. Shower once or twice daily. First wash your hands, then wash incisions gently with soap and water; afterwards gently pat incisions dry with a clean towel. Apply new absorbent pads. When an incision has ceased draining for more than 24 hours, it no longer needs to covered by pads
    • Do not apply ice-packs or a heating pad to skin overlying the areas treated by liposuction
