How soon can I scuba dive after surgery
I have had a liposuction procedure done a few weeks ago and a friend told me that there is a risk involved in scuba diving within 4 months after any kind of surgery. Please tell me whether this is true, and how long I should wait until it is safe?

Mandy, the minimum time you should wait is 3 months. The best would be to contact your surgeon and find out what his recommendation is. Good luck.
