Smartlipo on Abdominal Area

I had smart lipo four days ago on my lower and mid abdomin and also bra fat. So far, and while still swollen and bruised, I can see a difference. The only con is that I've read that bruising and pain is really minimal with this particular procedure, yet, it is quite painful with pretty significant - if not severe- bruising. But I remain optimistic that I'll be quite satisfied with the results.
I'm now four days post-op and obviously have quite a bit of swelling left. It's hard to tell if there's any drainage left because my lower abdomin (above the pubic line) looks so swollen, even though that area was not treated.
I've been eating really heathy over the last four days, I've cut out all sugar and fatty foods, eating nothing but fruits, vegetables and a lite, low calorie healthy dinner, but have not lost a single pound. I'm also walking 30 minutes a day. Its frustrating to be putting in so much effort NOT TO MENTION have smart lipo, and be the same exact weight I was the morning before my procedure.I drained heavily the first two days and have had dry pads for the last 24 hours but am wondering what happens to any remaining fluid? Does it get re-absorbed into your body? What can I do to lose weight apart from the healthy diet I have been eating for the past four days?
