Is weight gain or swelling 2 weeks post liposuction and Cellulaze normal?
Doctor Answers 1
Swelling after cellulaze and liposuction
- Temporary weight gain after liposuction is normal. Cellulaze causes swelling also.
- A compression garment that is too tight can actually cause swelling. Yours should be comfortable.
- Cut out carbohydrate for two days - just lean meat, salad and fruit. It can remove swelling from inactivity.
- In rare cases, weight gain after liposuction is from thyroid malfunction - checked with a TSH blood test.
- Best wishes.
