Dear Dr. Togba,
Q. At 52, I work out regularly, eat right and take care of myself but I still have love handles. Holiday eating made it worse. How quickly can I get scheduled liposuction and how long will it take to recover?
A. First, you should schedule a consult, then you can sit down with my patient counselor to select a surgery date that suits you. As far as recovery time, most patients return to work within two to five days. Swelling subsides and you can the final results after two to four weeks.
