Recovery after a body lift
After your surgery, you should expect mild pain and swelling at the incision sites. To reduce swelling and support the operated areas, you will need to wear a compression garment. Once your condition is stable, you will be advised to engage in light walking exercises. This helps prevent blood clots and improves your blood circulation. Dr Ritz will also prescribe medications for pain and inflammation to control discomforts. Before you go home, you will receive specific instructions on how to care for your wounds. This will also include your follow-up schedule and home medications.
