“3 days, 1 week, 1 month, or 6 months… how long does it take to recover after undergoing abdominal liposuction?” – It seems to be an issue that concerns lots of women. By “recover” here will have a broader meaning and it needs to be addressed specifically. In order to answer this question in more detail, please refer to the article below for more information.


To answer the question: “How long does it take to recover after undergoing abdominal liposuction?”. You need to understand what abdominal liposuction is.

Abdominal liposuction is a cosmetic method applied to quickly remove excess fat under the skin of the abdomen from the body. This technique is applied when measures such as diet and exercise are not effective or for those who need to lose fat quickly.

Depending on the applied liposuction technique, health condition, and the cosmetic facility, the recovery process of each customer will take place differently. Specifically, if you undergo the High-tech Liposuction Lipo Ultrasound procedure at Gangwhoo Cosmetic Hospital with very small incisions (about 0.5 cm) then, the wound will heal in just a few days later.

However, regarding the healing process of the body’s appearance and functions – the recovery process might be as follows:

1. From 1 – 3 days

1 – 3 days after the surgery is very important because, during this time, we can determine whether the liposuction technique is safe or not. The shape of the abdomen at this time has improved greatly, but the wound has not healed. Therefore, you need to rest and avoid strong movements. You also need to avoid bathing and do not let water get into the open wound area.

You may encounter symptoms such as slight swellings of the skin, discharge, and mild pain in the surgical areas. But rest assured, because that is a normal reaction of the body after major surgery. After a few days, these symptoms will disappear.

2. From 5 – 7 days later

There may still be some swelling, but the soreness has subsided a lot. According to Dr. Park Sung Yong. During this time, you should keep on wearing a compression garment so as not to lose the shape of your abdomen. Although you may feel discomfort, you will start to feel normal when your abdomen is in shape.

3. From 10 – 20 days

During this time, you will no longer feel any pain or discomfort in the abdominal area, the shape of the abdomen becomes sharper, and you can return to your normal activities. However, you must remember to take the follow-up visits as scheduled by the doctor for reexamination. This is to help ensure the aesthetic result as well as to ensure your health.

4. From 1 – 3 months

From about 1 month later, the recovery process will take place very quickly. Until this time, in some people, if their health condition is good, their body will show extremely positive changes.

According to Dr. Park Sung Yong: “Any surgery takes time to recover – abdominal liposuction surgery is no exception. The recovery time depends on many things such as the type of surgery, the doctor’s skills, and the equipment used. How you do self-care at home after the surgery is important as well.”

As mentioned above, in addition to the cosmetic facility, the equipment, and the doctor’s qualifications… it depends a lot on how you do self-care at home as well. You need to do as follows:

  • Clean and disinfect the wound with cotton soaked in physiological saline, and take the right dose of medicine as prescribed by the doctor.
  • Soak the discharge and change the bandage regularly so that the surgical areas stay hygienic. When the discharge has stopped flowing or stopped completely, you should wrap the wound with bandages to help the open wound heal quickly.
  • Avoid intense exercises. You should do light exercises such as walking to help remove the discharge better.
