A lower body lift is a great solution for those with loose, sagging skin around their abdomen and buttocks. It tightens the skin and tones the area around the lower abdomen and buttocks. Many interested in undergoing a lower body lift know it could be life-changing. But the recovery process can feel overwhelming and frightening. So, how bad is the pain after a lower body lift?
Because a lower body lift is more extensive, discomfort and pain are expected. Dr. Santos will prescribe pain medication to manage discomfort. Some feel minimal discomfort and take over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol. Others need to use the prescribed medication. The amount of pain depends on the extent of your lower body lift and your individual pain tolerance.
Recovery from any lower body lift requires at least two weeks off of work and four to six weeks of minimal movement. However, moving your body continually by walking after the procedure is important. In the expert hands of cosmetic surgery like Dr. Santos, the patient ensures that the best care will be provided.
