Feeling fat after liposuction

You are probably still swollen. Liposuction looks great the first five days. Then protein healing beings and tissue swell. But - by 6-8 weeks you should notice:

  • improvement in your contour
  • softening of the tissues
  • appearance of your new proportions.
  • your final result can take six months to appear

You can gain weight after liposuction but it will usually appear in different places, not the ones where you had the liposuction. Sorry the recovery is hard! Best wishes.
