"Gas" after Liposuction?

Thank you for the question.

Often, after any type of surgical procedure, it takes a few days for patients to resume normal bowel habits/movements. This may take up to 5 days to normalize. If you are experiencing any other problems you should follow your plastic surgeon evaluation.

Best wishes.
