I had MPX Smart Lipo done 2 weeks ago on stomach and flanks. A week ago I looked great stomach was super flat, flanks were perfect. But, now in week 2 I look bigger and my stomach is super hard around my belly button. my flanks look fat. I am still wearing my garments and I do my massages 5 to 10 mins twice a day. Am I just being paranoid or am i just now swelling or is there a bigger problem?
Smart Lipo MPX Results Got Worse After 2 Weeks

Swelling is normal after Smartlipo
You are not paranoid, your concerns are reasonable. You are experiencing the normal evolution of healing phases after Smartlipo: During the first phase (few days to week) everything looks great; during the second phase (several weeks) there may be hardening and swelling; and during the third phase, the swelling resolves, the skin becomes smoother and more tone, and the results resemble the initial phase. So eat appropriately, and trust that your final result will look great.
Inflammation lasts a while with liposuction
I always advise patients that they must excursive patience following any procedure. Our body must go through the normal healing process and this takes time. Your body will experience swelling and inflammation for sometimes six to eight weeks. It takes a matter of months before you get the final results. Collagen formation will help with tightening and this takes quite a while. Take care
If you have concerns, please check bad with your surgeon.
You are still in the healing process, so it is difficult to know what your final results will be. If you have concerns, please check bad with your surgeon.
