Why does it appear I have more fat around my waist line after Lazer Liposuction?
Without seeing pictures it is difficult to tell what is going on but certainly have swelling that would mask the result of your surgery. I tell my patients to be careful about salt intake as this can make swelling worse. It can easily take 2-3 months to see your final results after a big surgery like you had. Be sure to keep any scheduled follow up appointments you have with your surgeons for his evaluation and advice. Good luck, Dean Vistnes.

Ask a doctor
If you had liposuction 6 days ago you are still swollen. No matter the technique, laser or traditional, liposuction traumatizes your soft tissues and the body's natural response to this includes swelling. Men tend to swell more than women. As you experienced from your first surgery, you will be swollen for some time and you will not see your final result for 3-6 months. Judging the quality of your results at a week is premature.
