I really appreciate the doctors on here taking the time to answer our questions. I was told I had 4 liters removed. I have been following my doc's post-op instructions to the T, 4 liters removed, weight still the same. My question is why does my waist line look the same after 4 liters removed? Could I be retaining fluid at 8 weeks? I was told I should have my shape at 4 weeks. Am I an exception to the rule?

It would be helpful to also see pictures from prior to your surgery to be able to give you a good answer. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, so you should not expect a weight loss from surgery, but you should expect a visible change after surgery. This is usually apparent by 6 weeks after surgery (if not sooner), but sometimes takes longer.
