I'm about one month out from a full abdominoplasty w/ liposuction on my flanks and tummy. At first I healed extremely well and my swelling was going down progressively. Then I got a virus. I probably also ate too much salt as well and took meds like Benadryl. Then I swelled up ...even my eyelids....I was really retaining water.
I've been able to get most of the swelling under some control, but I still have a thick swollen patch right above my incision. I'm doing some exercise and self massage. My doc is out of town for the next few weeks. I'm considering doing a detox body wrap. Is there any harm in this?
