Is It Common to Have Blisters After Tumescent Lipo?
Doctor Answers 3
Blisters after tumescent liposuction are uncommon and usually caused by tape or the pressure garment.
If you had tumescent liposuction without laser, the most common cause of blister is a tape reaction or pressure on the skin, possibly from the pressure garment or foam compression. If you have blister from those causes, they should heal within a few weeks. Blisters caused by laser liposuction are much deeper, take longer to heal and usually leave a scar.

Blisters After Tumescent Lipo?
Thank you for your question. There are some heat involved during the melting of the fat and sometimes a blister can form. I would apply some Neosporin if no allergies to it or some petroleum jelly like Aquaphor. I hope this helps.
Blisters after liposuction are rare and usually caused by reactions to tape.
Blisters after liposuction are rare and usually caused by reactions to tape. A persistent blister could be a sign of infection. Presumably your surgeon is seeing you regularly post op and can diagnose the problem,
