Recovery time from liposuction


Liposuction does cause extreme swelling which takes several weeks to resolve.  The garment is important, but if it is poorly fitted, it can cause problems.  I would stop wearing your current garment and try a different one.  The majority of the swelling is gone by 6 weeks, so you will be fine before your wedding in January.
