Lipogems® adipose therapy doesn’t involve an overnight hospital stay or long recovery time. It’s a day case procedure, after which you’ll be able to return home.
Immediately after your treatment, you will be carefully monitored for several hours by our team of specialist nurses, to make sure that you are feeling well and the incision sites are healing correctly. One of our team of physiotherapists will see you to discuss your programme of exercises, which you’ll be able to begin around 48 hours after your treatment; these are designed to help you recover as quickly as possible.
Most people don’t need to have stitches to close the incisions which should heal naturally and will be covered with an absorbent dressing pad and compression wrap for 24-48 hours after the procedure. The wound may ‘leak’ a little for up to 24 hours; this is completely normal and you shouldn’t be concerned.
Before you leave, you’ll be given information about caring for your wound and a follow-up appointment date. You’ll also be given advice on post-operative medications.
