Can laser liposuction be performed on the knees? What is the recovery like?
Laser liposuction can and is performed on the knees. The laser liposuction procedure is extremely well tolerated. The recovery period for laser liposuction of the knees is relatively easy. Swelling and bruising can last for several days to weeks, but, it is not a particularly painful procedure and you will be able to ambulate the day of surgery. Heavy exercise is not recommended for about two weeks to reduce the chance of prolonged swelling.
