hello! I had lipo done on my love handles, lower and upper abs, flanks, inner thighs, inner knees, and mid thighs for a breast fat grafting procedure. It has been 8 months post op but I am still experiencing pains from neuropraxic injuries, and a hard swollen stomach and love handles. I have always been very fit and had a smooth stomach, but now I have a muffin top so now it looks like I gained weight instead of lost. Is this normal? Also there are very large dimples where the scars are. help!!
Lipo issues 8 months out
A bit more details and a good exam are key to figure out what is going on. At 8 months after lipo things should be back to normal already. Good luck.
Pain and Swelling caused by laser?
Pain and swelling eight months after tumescent liposuction without laser is very unusual. I suspect you may have had a complication due to laser liposuction. The laser is like a hot tipped poker which can injure nerves, vessels, skin and other important structures.
In the rush to go to the "current fad" of laser liposuction, we are hearing about people getting hurt.
It sounds like you are going to need some help like Dr Shureih suggests.
For other readers, consider choosing tumescent liposuction WITHOUT laser. The liposuction doctors I know with 10+ years of experience consider it a SAFER choice.
Pain after liposuction
Though very rare, chronic pain after liposuction can happen especiall when using a source of energy to do the liposuction.
To those patients I recomended pain manegement centers, and massage therapy and external ultrasound treatment. will take about 6 months to a year to resolve.
