When can I exercise following liposuction?
I would usually not recommend exercising much in the first week. Walking is always encouraged although it is important to wear compressive garments. Following review at one week I would usually discuss what exercises would be relevant to you. I always encourage patients to remain in compression garments for 4-6 weeks postoperatively. Gentle exercise such as running and cycling can often be commenced after 2 weeks and swimming is encouraged once the wounds have healed. Which can be as soon as 2 weeks.
