What Happens to Skin After Liposuction?

Have you decided to take a step in the right direction? Dealing with being overweight is a struggle that nearly every American deals with. More than a third of adults are obese. That means that nearly 1 in 3 Americans are in danger of serious health issues and even death. For many, liposuction is the last resort and their last chance at leading a healthy and normal life. Liposuction has become increasingly popular as obesity rises in the U.S. At the Prestige Institute, we are committed to not only helping you look great, but also being able to lead a more productive and healthy life.

Liposuction is the process of removing excess body fat from areas of the body. The surgeon will use a cannula (large needle like vacuum) and scrape the excess fat out of certain areas of the body. These areas are typically around the mid-section, legs, and buttocks. It is a quick and relatively safe procedure thanks to advances in technology and the skills of the surgeon. However, you need to make sure that you give yourself enough time to fully recover from the surgery. This is very important to the recovery process. Bruising and swelling is normal and should go down about 2 weeks after surgery.


You will begin to see your new body once the swelling reduces. It is normal for there to be excess skin around the areas where the fat was removed. It is also normal for the skin to take some time to readjust to your new body. As a result, the skin will shrink back and with exercise it should be able to go back to normal. Typically severely obese people’s skin will need a more invasive procedure to tighten the skin again.

The Prestige Institute has balance.

Many people that undergo liposuction surgery also get thier skin tightened. This procedure is usually done by pulling the skin tight around the area of the body and then removing any excess skin that is left over. Exercise, natural healing, and skin tightening will help you get your desired look.
