User :   from
Doctor :   In less than a week after liposuction, most patients are able to move normally and even return to work with minimal discomfort
User :   ok
Doctor :   Liposuction recovery time varies from patient to patient, but most return to normal after two weeks and experience optimal liposuction results over the next several months.
Doctor :   Recovery from liposuction can be uncomfortable, but most people are back to work within 10 days. During the first few weeks most people experience varying degrees of pain, burning, swelling and temporary numbness. Pain medications can alleviate discomfort (usually taken for 2 days - 2 weeks) and a body-compression garment will minimize swelling. You will need to refrain from any exercise other than walking for about a week after the procedure. Slowly work your way back to your old exercise routine.
