Swelling after liposuction
you must check wtih your liposuction surgeon, but if you want the swelling to go down, you should wear the correct compression garment for your size, and consider taking Arnica montana, an herb that may minimize swelling and brusing. You still won't be ready for a bikini on vacation but you may feel less self-conscious.
