Can I exercise after liposuction?

i am an avid runner and try to run 5 days a week.  I am going to get liposuction to my flanks to remove some unwanted fat that has been there ever since I had kids.  How soon after having liposuction will I be able to run again?  Thank you.

Usually patients can start light exercise after 5 days or so. The more exercise may cause more swelling of the areas that had liposuction performed to them so I recommend to take it easy for the first couple weeks. Good Luck

Liposuction to the flanks has a very mild recovery.  You should be able to go back to running a few days after the procedure.
