Patience and Compression
You should be wearing compression garments 24/7 and starting lymphatic massages several times per week as soon as you can tolerate the treatments. It is way, way too early to make any determinations about the ultimate result of your surgery. Overall, it appears as if you will have an excellent result, you just have to be patient and allow the swelling to resolve and your skin to tighten. Hang in there...
A little early
- You have marked improvement in the front view after your liposuction.
- The lower abdomen is very swollen. This can happen. But have your surgeon check you.
- Massage 5 days after surgery hurts. Ask your surgeon when to start.
- At 6 weeks. compare a photo then to the photo now. You will probably see the improvement.

Very hard to advise but in most cases you DO see a better difference by 5 days. I would recommend aggressive lymphatic massages and time to see if the area improves... If after ...1 month you still look swollen than consider not enough was removed
