The left leg swells from time to time. The doctor said it's from the Lipo but I also see a small whole that isn't quite closed within the groin area on the left. The doctor looked at it and asked that I just pack it with a small sterile gauze, when is this little whole going to close. Why is this leg stinging and burning along the crease.
Is It Normal to Feel a Stinging and Burning Sensation in the Crease of One Leg Which Keeps Swelling 3 Weeks Out?

Pain in groin crease after liposuction
Thank you for asking about your healing 3 weeks after liposuction.
- The opening sounds like an infected liposuction incision.
- This would cause pain and swelling.
- Return to your liposuction surgeon, ask about infection and antibiotics.
- It should heal within days once infection is controlled. Best wishes.
