I'm 14 days post op of the surgery. The surgeon took out 500cc on each side on my flanks. After day two day by day I'm getting more swollen and back to my original size from before the surgery. Is this normal and when get I expect to see my swelling to go down. It also seems like my feet and thighs are a bit swollen as well.
Recently Got Liposuction of the Flanks, Getting More Swollen?

Swelling and liposuction
Liposuction like any surgery causes swelling. Swelling from liposuction significantly improves within 3-4 weeks but may persist for several months.
