Swelling after liposuction

In my practice, we perform regular post-lipo care massages with modified lymphatic massage and ultrasound to help tissue recovery so that we minimize seroma and tissue edema or lymphedema. Sometimes, protracted tight compression can retard recovery of the lymphatics and lead to swelling once the compression is removed. I recommed follow up with your plastic surgeon to determine if this is seroma that may need to be aspitated or tissue edema that can be improved with massaging or anti-inflammatory medications or diuretics.
