The stitches are removed or dissolve on their own within the first week to ten days.

When can I resume physical activities? You will generally be able to begin resumption of your normal activities in two to three weeks. Patients are back to work in 3-6 days. Each case is different and the plastic surgeon will discuss your specific recovery thoroughly with you.

What am I to expect after my liposculpture surgery?  After surgery, you will likely experience some fluid drainage from the incisions.

Alma Delia patron.

Hola mucho gusto,me gustaria saber si tienen algun tipo de cirugia para las axilas?mi problema es que tengo demasiado exceso en ellas,nunca he podido mostrarme con blusas sin mangas,es como si no tuviera forma en mis axilas(no se como describirlo exactamente).gracias ????

Dr. Juan Pablo Cervantes

Hola Alma Delia, el problema de las axilas es muy común. Puede ser causado por dos componentes como lo son tejido graso o tejido mamario por separado o su combinación. La solución puede ser a base de resecar el tejido o liposuccionarlo, o también combinando estos dos procedimientos. La recuperación es rápida y el efecto es inmediato; aunque requiere de tiempo para lograr la desinflamación total . Agenda una cita para revisarte en el consultorio y así ofrecerte la mejor opción. Saludos!
