How Active Can You Be Whilst Recovering?
It is very important you walk every day after leg lipoedema liposuction. For the first week, most patients stay at home and walk inside. During the second week, patients go outside, start driving and socialising. You should aim to increase your walking distance by a little every day. If your ankles swell significantly after a particular day, that suggests you’ve done too much and should pull back on your walking distance.
You should not go to the gym, swim or use hot tubs / spas for at least 6 weeks. It may be longer if there is still significant swelling.
