Patients will see continued improvement for up to six months after liposuction. Remain patient and periodically Check in with your surgeon.
The hardest part about liposuction is being patient. Results can take months to become what they are going to be long term. The first six-twelve weeks can have swelling, temporary lumps and, most importantly, gradual improvement. Patience really is important with your results.
Its difficult to comment without seeing your before and after pictures. However, due to its nature liposuction results are not seen immediately. It can take sveral months for final results to be realized. The surgeon obviously removed some fat, so there should be a benefit. I would wait 12 weeks before judging the results. All surgeons want happy and satisfied patients, if you are dissapointed go back and discuss this with him. To get your desired results you may have needed a more aggressive approach such as a tummy tuck. Give it time and your doctor will sort things out.
