I had smartlipo (triplex) high definition performed 11 weeks ago on my chest, upper/lower abs and flanks. I'm starting to get very worried because it looks as if my stomach is almost bigger now than it was before - it is still flabby and appears to have that muffin top appearence I wanted to get rid of and my love handles are still there. Is it possible this is still swelling? I was pretty petite to begin with, weighing 65 kilos and I'm 22 years old.
Smartlipo triplex still swollen after 3 months? (photo)

Swelling is normal
Thank you for posting before and after photos of the area. Your results look great, and it is normal to be swollen at 3 months. Smartlipo results can take up to 6 months to see a full contour in your body. Be sure to follow up with your surgeon to make sure you are healing properly.
