I had smartlipo on abs/waist 7 weeks ago. My breast/chest area has grown since surgery. Is this due to swelling or am I just getting fatter? My bottomside appears larger too, but in fact, have shrunk a bit when wearing pants. I am very confused. I walk daily but have only been able to start with light weights as far as substantial exercise goes only this week. Should I begin vigorous exercise now?
Will I Lose Weight off my Breast/higher Back Area After Recovery?

More than likely at one week since surgery, what you are experiencing is probably swelling. But, the breasts can grow with weight gain.
