Slim Lipo Complications - Pain 3 Months Post-op

Pain after liposuction
If the pain is still persisting at three months it may be that the muscular wall was irritated during the procedure (not likely damaged permanently). Despite the comment of Dr. Blinski, Slim Lipo is actually a powerful tool that must be used properly. Long standing pain is possible after any lipo case. Seek pain management from a pain specialist. I have not had this issue in my Slim Lipo cases but I perform all my lipo under local anesthesia which I think limits some postoperative issues.
If the the pain is in a focal area perhaps a steroid injection may be helpful.
Best of luck
