I had liposoft/liquid lipo on my outer thighs and love handles 9 days ago. I can notice a change in my love handles but my outer thighs don't look any different. I had a large volume of fat on my outer thighs. Im quite petite everywhere else. When will the swelling go down?
How Long Till I See Results After Liposoft/liquid Lipo?

Swelling after Liposuction.
Thank you for the question.
The lateral thighs, like every other area treated with liposuction surgery may remain swollen for many months after the procedure. At 6 days post op It is much early to evaluate the results of the surgery. I tell patients it may take 6 months to a year for skin to redrape completely.
I hope this helps.

Swelling and liposuction
Swelling from liposuction can persist for several months. Where a good portion of the swelling will subside in a few weeks, many months will pass before you see the final result.
Swelling after liposuction
I have no experience in this type of liquid liposuction, but most conventional liposuctions produce swelling that can last for a couple of months, but the majority of the swelling goes down in a few weeks.
