Recovering after plastic surgery
BATON ROUGE - Dr. Stephens answered viewer questions today and talked about the recovery process after plastic surgery.
One of the things he discussed was recovery from liposuction surgery. He said bruising after liposcution can last longer if it's done on the thighs, possibly up to six weeks, instead of the abdomen, which usually lasts only two.
He also said if you're planning to hit the beach after you have a surgery, make sure enough time has passed to let the incisions completely close. He said patients can get into a shower or clean water 48 hours after their surgery, but need to wait at least a week before going to the beach or a swimming pool.
