I had laser lipo done 1 week ago today and am experiencing the most swelling I've had all week today. Is that normal? Does the swelling go up and down during the next 6 weeks to 6 months? I actually feel as big as I did the day I went into surgery! I am not in pain but am worried about the swelling today. My post op is not until 7/16. Am wondering if I should go in sooner?!
Does Swelling Go Up and Down After Laser Liposuction?

Swellling after liposuction
Swelling does increase and decrease after liposuction. It is not unusual to have more swelling a couple of weeks after the procedure. Compression garments are helpful and don't do much exercising until your surgeon approves the activities you are allowed to do.
