Is It Normal to Have a Rash After Smart Lipo?

I had my upper and lower abs done yesterday and there is minimal swelling and bruising as expected, but I also have a very itchy rash covering most of the area treated. Is this normal?

A rash is not normal and may be related to your garment or other clothing.  The prep solution, if betadine/iodine may also be the culprit.
