Liposuction Seattle: How Long For Liposuction Results?
Liposuction is among one of the most popular body contouring procedures performed. Consistently ranking in the top five plastic surgeries, thousands of patients undergo lipo every year. When considering liposuction in Seattle, a common question patients ask is “How long for liposuction results?”
The answer to this question ranges. Patients who have only small fat pockets removed may see their results sooner than those with more extensive procedures. For example, a patient who has chin liposuction may see results sooner than a patient who underwent full lipo of the abdomen. It will also vary based on a patient’s individual healing process. Some patients simply heal faster than others.
In general, final plastic surgery results take around nine months to one year to fully come in. Since liposuction removes fat but not skin, the skin needs time to settle and stretch over your new contours. Swelling often lasts a while after lipo as well, sometimes taking months to fully resolve. Although, it usually becomes nearly imperceptible in a few weeks.
Without taking into consideration individual healing factors, most patients can expect to see final results from plastic surgery in about one year. Many patients are satisfied with results long before the one year mark.
