I am currently 3 weeks post op from having lipo done on the entire back, entire stomach and sides, along with a BBL. The first week I has major swelling. The 2nd week I has none and now on the third week, the swelling started up again, plus it now hurts to the touch and feels like I have liquid buildup on my back and stomach. For the first 2 weeks, I was getting Lymphatic massages everyday which I believed helped. Is there anywhere to explain the unusual swelling? Please advised!

3 Weeks out from Brazilian Buttlift and Swelling
If you have a fluid wave when touching your skin, you have a fluid collection that needs to be drained. If this is just swelling, this may be increased due to increased activity. It will take several weeks to months for this to resolve. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
Thank you for your question, at the third week after your surgery its normal to still be very swollen, try to continue with your lymphatic massages, they will help you with the swelling. Holding back from strenuous activities will help minimize the swelling in your body to. as far as for the fluid build up that will need to be drained by a professional.
