Here are the precautions and postoperative cautions. Liposuction is safer and does not have many complications compare to those of other surgeries, but we still need to be cautious before and after the operation.
These are the general cautions that Venus Clinic uses, so it could be varied over each patient so it is not for all the patients. Also each hospital has differences so please follow the doctor.
Relatively high-grade compression is undergone to promote drainage through incision on 1~2 days after the operation. After the drainage stops, low-grade compression is done to maintain lymphatic capillary.
In general, patients wear compression garment after the stop of drainage.
For 2 weeks after the operation, it is better to compress for 24 hours a day. It is also better to wear compression garment for 2 to 3 months after the operation. It is sufficient to compress by wearing the compression garment.
Before the operation, we check the patient body condition and talk about the operation and schedule the operation date. We measure size for the compression garment. We also run a blood test.
After talking with the doctor, area to be treated is designed, and a photo is taken.When you enter the operation room, you should lie down. After a nap, the operation should be over.

This is the picture of first day after the operation. There are some bruises, and blood fluid drains through the incisions. We sometimes stitch incisions in cases of need and wear compression garment.
Hello, I am 23 year old regular worker. It has been only one day after the operation and I really satisfied already. I strongly recommend those who consider about liposuction. I thought liposuction would be hard and tough but it was not actually. So I really strongly suggest liposuction. Aching got better after one day and it is durable. I really thank Dr. Jung.
Today is second day after the operation. Body is getting lighter and I feel better every day. Today was the first day I went back to work, but I did not have any troubles working. The one thing that was uncomfortable was that I had to sit right due to compression garment, but it was not a big deal. But I cannot stop eating. I know that I have to control but I usually eat a lot so. Still I feel good!

This is the picture of third day after the operation. There is little blood fluid. As much as blood fluid comes out, it is better: have fewer bruises and fewer complications.
Third day after the operation. Dr. Jung said blood fluid can drain for 4 days, but it did not drain a day after the operation. I put the ointment and I am about to take a shower since it is my third day after the operation. Operated area ached on the day of operation and the next day, but now I almost have no pain. When I look at abdomen, bottom parts of abdomen swallowed more. I hope it disappears and I think it will last for a week. I have a little bruises but it can be treated with non-bruise ointment. I am a little careful with bending down which can create the wrinkles to garment and skin. I expect more and more every day.
Today is fourth day after the operation. 3-4 days after the operation, it is possible to take a shower, so I took a shower today. After taking of compression garment, a lot of bruises and swelling are decreased. I feel good. I washed garment with hands, drained with a washing machine, and dried with hair drier. It dried well. Daily life gets more comfortable every day.
This is the picture of fifth day after the operation.
Bruises got much better and there is almost no blood fluid. Fifth day after the operation.. My back aches more than the operated area because I have to keep the right posture. Swelling got better and I feel like garment is getting loose. I wore the tight shirts, and I could see the much better body line right away.
This is the seventh day after the operation. Less bruises and we could see a line. We start the postoperative management once or twice a week. The welling will rapidly recover and tugging sensation will be alleviated.
It has been already 7 days after the operation. I went to the hospital to remove stitches. I have almost no bruises and swelling is getting better every day. I still feel the dullness of skin when I touch the operated area. It is still a little uncomfortable bending down but is ok. I have about 1-2kg of weight loss.
The skin becomes harder, but it will alleviate as time goes by for about 3 months. Dullness or tugging sensation will be alleviated within about 3 months, too. But for a complete recovery, it will take about 6 months.
These are the notes of recovering process with pictures of Ms. Venus who got liposuction from our hospital. If you need and want more details, you can visit our website (NAVER café) to read more.
