Swelling After Liposuction is Normal

It is normal to have swelling after liposuction especially since you are only 7 days out from your procedure.  Swelling will subside slowly over the next few weeks and months.  Ecchymosis is also normal after liposuction.  This will resolve sooner.  I'm not sure what you mean by "heart swelling".  Please discuss this with your surgeon.

  • Swelling and bruising are normal after liposuction.
  • It will take about 6 weeks from surgery to significantly subside. Best wishes.
