6 Weeks Post Op Liposuction Uneven Flanks and Swelling and Bloating?

I'm 6 weeks post op liposuction of my abs, flanks, hips, inner thighs. I also had breast revision to correct my cc and exchange for bigger breasts. I'm concerned that my flanks are uneven and still get bloated and swollen most days. I am walking 30-40 mins on treadmill and Pilates w/ light weights. When will the swelling and bloating get better and will my flanks even out?

Too early to judge liposuction results


Asymmetry after liposuction is normal.  Without photographs it is hard to comment. I would continue to follow instructions and give it time.

Uneven Flanks


Without photos, I would not want to comment. Duration of swelling is extremely variable. Expect resolution by 3-6 months.

All the best.
