Swelling or Fat Leftover After Liposuction?
- Asked by vanidozza in brownsville texas

I had a Liposuction on January 31 on my love handles. I noticed that my right love handle is gone, but the left one is not gone completely. I know I'm still swollen because I feel sore and lumpy on both sides. I still have bruising on my left love handle, but it looks fatter. Did my doctor left some fat in this area, or is this just swelling?
Wait a full 4 months.
Hi! It takes 4 months to see the final result from liposuction. If after this time your left side is still bigger, then it is a combination of left over fat and internal scar tissue. You can then have a touch up procedure.
It is likely to be corrected with a revision
After 6 months, most of swelling should be resolved. It sounds like you may have a bit of swelling since you feel pain and hardness. Massage may help soften the deep scar areas and resolve the edema. Consider revision when full recovery is completed.
