When Can I Return to Work After Liposuction?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


At Grossman Plastic Surgery, we understand that work is vitally important to most Denver residents. As such, you’re likely curious about how long you’ll have to wait before returning to work after undergoing liposuction.

Fortunately, recovery time from liposuction is relatively brief. Most patients are able to return to work within a week or so of their procedure. And many can do so after two or three days.

Of course, it’s impossible to answer that question conclusively over the internet. Every body is unique, and every body recovers from trauma at different rates. Your recovery timeline will be influenced by your body’s natural healing abilities.

The details of your procedure will also influence how quickly you are able to return to work. VASER Liposuction, which uses ultrasound to break up fat cells, often comes with a greatly reduced recovery time, as it causes less trauma than traditional liposuction.

Our doctors will answer all of your liposuction questions, help you choose the right procedure and lay out a detailed recovery timeline so that you are completely informed before undergoing any procedure.
