Proper planning for liposuction is crucial to making the experience positive and rewarding. Knowing as much as possible about the procedure, it’s after effects and the healing time will help you stay calm and relaxed throughout your appointment, and prevent any bad surprises popping up on the day of your appointment. The first course of action of course, is to gather information from a recognized and reputable Denver Smart Lipo professional. To get you started, here are some very easy tips to remember as you get started on your journey towards a better you!
First and foremost, talk to professionals and find out as much as you can about the procedure, its cost, possible side effects and anything else you can think to ask.
Start your planning early in order to find the date that works best with your schedule. Keep in mind that there will likely be several times needed for lab tests and consultations before the actual day of the procedure arrives.
Have your medical history prepared and ready to give to the practitioner at your first consultation.
You need not follow any special diets or avoid any foods before your procedure. You will however, likely have to avoid taking anti-inflammatory medicines such as Aspirin, Advil or Motrin for about ten days prior to your liposuction. You should also avoid any herbal medications as well.
It is not advisable to plan on driving yourself home from the appointment. Arrange transportation with a friend or family member.
Be sure to plan enough time off from your job. Most people plan for two or three days minimum for recovery time. Professionals agree for the most part that too much inactivity after surgery actually slows the healing process. While they don’t recommend overdoing things, they do suggest you get back to normal activity within two or three days.
If you work from home or are a stay at home parent, you may not feel you need to schedule any “time off.” Even though you are in charge of your own schedule, you should arrange for some help for the days following surgery. You will have to be somewhat careful with lifting those precious bundles of joy! An extra pair of hands can really make a world of difference to your ability to cope and get back to normal.
Try to plan ahead for any tasks that will need to be done during your recovery period and complete them ahead of time. For example, be sure to fill the pantry, do your banking and have the laundry all caught up. That way you won’t be tempted to take on any of those things for the first couple of days. You might even want to plan some small, lighter tasks during your down time such as letter writing or scrapbooking that you’ve not had time for recently.
Relax and look forward to the day when you will achieve the appearance that you desire to be a happier you!
