Discouraged - Canada

I am 5 days post op and i feel like i look worse...

i am 5 days post op and i feel like i look worse now then before my mini. i look pregnant. i thought i was supposed to look better. i am swollen above my belly button its like baby belly and hard yet mushy all at the same time. i did have laser lipo done too. is this suppose to look like this. i am beginning to regret having it done, i was supposed to feel better about my self not worse. some body please help !

It is normal to have the lipoed area feel hard and lumpy and swollen. It will get better. Total results will not be until 6 months. Give it some time.
Post after pics so we can see how swollen you are, look at mine and compare. Might make you feel better.

Oh crud! I'm sorry you're feeling this way 5 days out. I'm sure you're still pretty swollen from the surgery. Have you talked to your surgeon about what you're going through? You definitely want to rule out a seroma.

You might want to post a question (with a photo) to doctors here on RealSelf and see what their take is.

Let us know how you're doing!
