There’s nothing worse during the summertime than hating the way your body looks. If you’re embarrassed to put on a pair of shorts or a swimsuit, it can take the fun out of the beach, backyard barbecues, and other fun warm-weather activities. Venice Beach Surgical Center can help with many treatments to give you the body you want. Vaser lipo is a gentler method of fat removal with far less downtime and side effects. That makes it a great choice for summertime because you can get your beach body easily. Here are some of the best summer recovery tips for lipo vaser in Los Angeles.
While you’re going to end up with a beach body, you can’t recover on the beach. That’s because you’ll need to stay cool during the recovery process. You’ll be wearing compression garments to help control the swelling. With those in place, you’ll probably be hotter than if you weren’t covered up. We recommend recovering inside in a cool location so that you can be comfortable and won’t be tempted to remove your compression bandages too soon.
Another important recovery tip is to get plenty of fluids into your system. It’s always a good idea to stay well hydrated when the temperature goes up, but it’s especially important after having vaser liposuction done. To stay cool and to promote a healthy surgery recovery, be sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day. Stay away from alcohol as it can induce dehydration, which can make your surgery side effects worse.
Vaser liposuction is a great reason to take it easy. Make sure you take time off work to recover and don’t commit to a bunch of social events. You will need to relax and rest to prevent your recovery from taking longer than it should. Feel free to invite friends to visit you during recovery, but refrain from over-scheduling yourself in the days and weeks after it’s done.
Limit Sun Exposure
The whole point of vaser liposuction is to get a beach body, but you’ll need to avoid the sun as you recover. Circulation at your incision sites won’t be ideal until they’re healed, which can make you more prone to infections in the area. Sun exposure can also make scars look more prominent after healing. For the first few months after surgery, you’ll need to be sure your scars are covered by clothing or sunscreen.
Stay Out of the Pool
This won’t last forever. Pretty soon you’ll be in the pool and the ocean. However, for several weeks after surgery, you’ll need to avoid the water to be sure that pathogens and bacteria don’t cause an infection at the incision sites.
