I am 3.5 weeks post-op from a breast augmentation and liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs. I'm hoping for some reassurance that I am still experiencing swelling and that I am NOT at my final result! While I notice an improvement in my body contour I was hoping for a more definite change given the expense and amount of discomfort endured! At this point are the changes only incremental going forward or could it still be significant? I believe my PS removed 2 liters. Thanks!
How Do I Know if I'm Still Swollen?

Liposuction at 3.5 Weeks
Liposuction results may not be realized for up to 6 months. The greater the volume of lipoaspirate, the longer the period of swelling. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
