Body Lift

RECOVERY NOTES:

IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE BEST POSSIBLE RESULTS, THE PATIENT AND DOCTOR MUST WORK TOGETHER AS A TEAM.

Bandages are applied right after surgery to minimize swelling and provide support. Tubes are often placed to drain excess fluids. The scars resulting from the incisions are carefully placed so as to minimize visibility. Maryland body lift patients sometimes report discomfort associated with surgery which can be treated with oral medication. Recovery time varies with the extent of the procedure. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the directions that are provided prior to the surgery.
