Liposuction unlike Tummy Tuck is much easier and faster. It would only require a few clinic visits. To help you plan your surgery here is a timeline for Liposuction surgery and what you should do at every step.
Fasting 8 hours before surgery is very important. We cannot emphasize this enough. Though this is a known fact and is practiced for years, some would still attempt a bite or a sip minutes before their surgery. This is a major risk that can cause complications during the surgery. At Evita Clinic, we make sure to ask patients for the time they last had a drink or a meal.
For patients who had their nails done, please have them removed before surgery. During the surgery, a sensor is placed on the fingertip to monitor your vital signs and oxygen level. Nail Polish, acrylic nails, gel nails reduced the effectiveness of this monitor.
At this point, you should know everything about the surgery you will have and start preparing yourself mentally and physically. Going in on your surgery tomorrow, you will not feel and look the same way as today. You will feel great but it would come with slight pain and weeks of feeling sore in the area. The day before your surgery, it would be better if you take a good night’s sleep.
