Post-procedure Expectations

The non-invasive, non-surgical nature of this procedure allows for a pleasant post-procedure experience. Our patients generally spend two to three hours waking up in our recovery room before going home the same day. Generally, we recommend a soft liquid diet for a brief amount of time after the procedure, specific recommendations vary on a patient-by-patient basis. After the procedure patients can only consume a small amount of food and should be mindful of this, overeating may cause discomfort. This procedure is performed in conjunction with a diet and exercise plan our nutritionist may customize with patients. Our team works closely to monitor the foot intake and metabolic health before and after the procedure in order to ultimately create the most effective plan possible for our patients.
