Dr. Rapaport Quoted in NewBeauty

December 10, 2021

NewBeauty published an article recently, titled “6 Liposuction Recovery Tips From Plastic Surgeons.” They went to Dr. Rapaport as an authority on the procedure.

In the article, NewBeauty stated,

“As to be expected, the weeks following liposuction are filled with some discomfort and adjusting to your new body. New York, NY plastic surgeon David P. Rapaport, MD, said the key is to ‘stay ahead of the pain from the beginning.’  Doing this will ultimately be “conducive to an overall better recovery’ following a liposuction procedure.”

The article went on to discuss the importance of returning to exercise gradually, but as soon as possible. It stated,

“Dr. Rapaport said patients should stretch frequently even before returning to the gym, and he encourages his patients ‘to be back at the gym within a week, preferably within three to five days with low impact, and build from there.’ When returning to high-impact activities, such as running, Dr. Rapaport said patients should wear compression.”

Recovery after liposuction with Dr. Rapaport

After your liposuction procedure with Dr. Rapaport, you will be fitted with a compression garment around the treatment areas to help reduce swelling and contour your body.

There will be swelling, and low to moderate (but very manageable) pain/soreness during the first few days following your procedure. Dr. Rapaport will provide prescription pain medication to manage this early and stay on top of it, as he explained to NewBeauty. It’s important to note that many patients feel that taking extra strength Tylenol is sufficient.

Many patients who have liposuction on a Friday, return to work on Monday. Compression garments will be worn for the first 48 hours following your procedure. If you’ve had the addition of BodyTite (for skin tightening) during your liposuction procedure, you will be instructed to wear your compression garment for a longer period of time.

By six weeks after your procedure, the majority of bruising and swelling will have subsided.
