Tenderness Following Smarlipo
It is not unusual to experience tenderness 2 weeks post op Smartlipo. You will continue to see improvement in contour as well as reduction in swelling and tenderness over the next several months. Skin tightening typically peaks at about 6 months and continues for up to 12 months. Regarding exercise, I have my patients slowly increase their activity level beginning at about 2 weeks. Wearing a support garment will help you feel more comfortable as you advance your activity level. Good luck.

Tenderness of the abdomen two weeks post-op is normal. Please be patient with your results, in just a few weeks you will notice the contouring of your abs. Good luck with healing!
