Melt I am 19 weeks post op and I still swell lower abs. Four weeks is too early to see results. You like me, probably went in expecting instant gratification, but that's not the case. According to my Dr. And other reviews, it could take up to six months! Who has six months!? You are going to have to be patient or you will drive yourself nuts! I started exercising at four weeks and had to stop because the more active you are, the more you swell. Do exercise but not too strenuous, walk, bike, a. It of abs work but not too much. I hope you are feeling better and seeing results.

Hi there, welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us.

I haven't had this procedure myself but I have read a lot of reviews, which say that results can take up to 6 months to come through. Are you seeing any results yet, now that it's been another couple of weeks since your procedure?
