Call your surgeon immediately for follow up.
At one week you are likely still experiencing a lot of swelling. There are no hard and fast rules for Smart Lipo, as every patients body reacts differently. Some patients see results immediately while it can take time for others. I typically tell my patients that will see a difference by the 4-6 weeks mark. It can sometimes take as long as 3 months to see the final results.
Seek medical attention immediately
My suggestion is to seek medical attention immediately. Minimal pain after Smartlipo is normal; if it is anything more than that, please call your surgeon. Good luck in your recovery!

THIS IS NOT USUAL!!! Please seek immediate medical attention or see you surgeon ASAP! After having done thousands of Smart Lipos if any of my patients had this early post operative course I would be very concerned...
