I had smartlipo done on Aug 15,2011. The area around my belly button is still swollen while other parts r looking good. How do I get the swelling to go away?
How to Make Area Around Belly Button Go Down 1 Month Post SmartLipo?

Swelling is normal after liposuction and can last up to 6-8 weeks. Unfortunately, there is no magic solution to improve this. Often, as you progress you become more active and this can result in more swelling. Be careful of your diet, and wearing a compressive garment during exercise can be helpful.
Best of luck
