Swollen ankle 5 days after liposuction of upper body
Although 5 days is a bit early for it, the most important thing not to miss here is a deep vein thrombosis on the swollen side. Apart from this, you probably don't need to worry too much and the swelling will settle on its own over time.

Ask a doctor
Why has my sprained ankle swollen up 5 days after liposuction of upper body?
Could be swelling re occurring or something else. Best to obtain a X-ray and/or scan of your ankle..
Aggravation of a sprained ankle after liposuction should be examined by your surgeon.
There are lots of reasons why areas remote from liposuction can swell after the procedure. However significant asymmetry of the ankles should be examined to make sure there is not deep vein thrombosis on the larger leg.
