Liposuction Recovery, Flying and Liposuction, Los Angeles Liposuction, Liposuction in Los Angeles

In our Los Angeles plastic surgery practice, we offer liposuction procedures for the face and body.  Liposuction is an ideal cosmetic plastic surgical technique to recontour unwanted areas of fat on the neck, abdomen, waistline, thighs, hips, calves, knees, and ankles.  Recovery after liposuction is relatively quick and Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian recommends for early ambulation and light aerobic activity to minimize the risk of problems after your liposuction.  In theory, long periods of inactivity may increase your risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.  Within several days of your liposuction treatment, you should be able to walk around and ambulate accordingly.


It is advised that you remain well hydrated and drink water to restore the natural balance to your body.  The patients often ask our office when they can fly after the liposuction.  The answer depends on the degree of liposuction performed on an individual.  The earliest period where the patients can undergo prolonged sitting is approximately five days to one week after the procedure.  The patients are advised to ambulate frequently on the plane and to drink water to remain well hydrated.  The postoperative recommendations for flying after liposuction depend on your individual characteristics and your degree of mobility after liposuction.  Consult your plastic surgeon prior to flying in order to receive final medical clearance after your procedure.
