I got "regular" lipo on the underside of my arms 4 weeks ago. Since the day I had that procedure, I've been disappointed that the area above my elbow and the outside/outer area of my arms weren't treated. It was my fault for not communicating with my surgeon properly. Now I want to treat the areas I missed, so I can get it over with. I know there's still swelling where I WAS treated, but what's the WORST that can happen if I get the other areas treated now? Don't want to wait 6 months. Thank you

Lipo and redo
At 4 weeks your arms are still swollen and it may not provide an accurate assessment for what needs to be done. You should probably wait 3-4 more months for the swelling to dissipate.
