Swelling in Legs After Smart Lipo on Upper and Lower Abdomen (Photo)

I have swelling in my right leg just below the panty line. It appeared suddenly and it is not pain. Just kind of feels like a HUGE blister. Is this normal? Anything I can do to help this? Elevate my legs and butt?

Anything that is sudden on set after surgery should be addressed with the surgeon who preformed your procedure.  This is worth a call to his or her office.

Swelling is normal after Smartlipo, this could last a few weeks to months. Schedule your follow up appointment with your surgeon to monitor your healing phase.
