■ After liposuction, Steri-Strips are applied to the insertion sites. The wounds are not closed further because of the desired drainage effect. The Steri-Strips can be removed by the patient after 8 days. The dressing is applied with the patient standing up. Absorbent pads take up the fluid produced in the first few days after the procedure. A compression girdle is worn for a few weeks after the operation. Antibiotic cover and thrombosis prophylaxis should be given.
