I am 13 days post op liposuction and BBL. I wake up so nice and smooth with a 26 inch waist (no lumps) and through the day, I gain at least 1-3 inches on my waist and am lumpy! Is this normal? is my waist getting bigger from swelling?
Lipo Suction Swelling Throughout the Day?

Lipo Suction Swelling Throughout the Day
None of what you relate sounds particularly alarming or unusual. Swelling occurs always, and most patients are larger than before surgery for a month or so.
Much of the swelling resolves and redistributes while you are lying down asleep, and typically worsens during the day.
This will improve over 3-6 months. All the best.

Yes, incresed intraday swelling that may worsen with increased activity is quite normal after most forms of body contouring surgery. This process usually “equilibrate” several months down the line.
