Pain after smartlipo
Pain at 4 weeks while not very common is fairly common. AS you progess to more activity different sensations can be felt. If concerned check with yoru surgeon.
Pain is always a very individual matter. I have had patients with your procedur return to work the next day with little or no discomfort. Also have had patients complaiin of pain fou up to 4 months. Stick with your doctor.
