Will I experience bruising or swelling after Bodytite?
Yes. Swelling is normal post procedure and will vary in severity person to person. It is unlikely to persist for more than a 1-2 weeks.
This may be accompanied by mild bruising that settles in 3-7 days. Unlike traditional liposuction, radio-frequency assisted liposuction with Bodytite coagulates small blood vessels during the procedure to significantly decrease bruising and swelling.
What is the recovery period like?
Swelling and tenderness is common immediately post procedure. Most patients require minimal over the counter pain relief.
Swelling and tenderness lasts 7-10 days. Most of our patients are back to work in 5-10 days depending on which areas of the body have been treated.
You should wear a compression garment that has been provided to you for 3 days. This can then be worn at night for a further 14 days.
When can I get back to exercise after Bodytite?
Most patients elect to have a week off strenuous exercise post procedure. This is to allow swelling to reduce, and the inflammation post treatment to settle.
It is typically safe to return to physical activity within 1-2 weeks post procedure.
