Liposuction Recovery

We understand that when you’re considering liposuction, one of your concerns is how much work you’ll miss and how long you’ll be “out of commission.” Fortunately, Houston-area residents who undergo liposuction have a very brief recovery period to anticipate.

In general, most patients return to work within a couple of days of their liposuction procedure. Your precise timeline will be determined by a number of the liposuction options you have, including:

  • Amount of fat removed
  • Treatment area
  • Type of liposuction (ultrasonic liposuction often reduces recovery time)

Of course, work is not the full extent of your life, and we understand that. You’ll usually have to wear a compression garment for a week or so after undergoing liposuction, so a full, rigorous workout is definitely not advisable. However, some light walks after your procedure will stimulate blood flow and healing.

Most patients are able to resume something like their full, normal routine around two weeks after their liposuction procedure. Dr. Eisemann will provide you with a more detailed timeline before you undergo a procedure.

Further, you will return to our office for follow-up appointments at specific times after your procedure. Dr. Eisemann will check on your progress and advise you on how best to proceed from that point.

If you live in or around Houston, Texas and you’re looking for liposuction from a triple-board certified plastic surgeon, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center for a consultation. We also welcome out-of-town patients.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
