I had 4600 plus taken out of my upper/lower abds, love handles. You will be fine just wear the compression garment very tight and take the water pills your Dr gave you. I'm 3 weeks post procedure and I doing great my pubic area is finally going down and I just waiting for my 6 week check up to do before and after pictures.

good morning.I had my ower and upper abs done on the 24th. I feel the same. like you just runned over. I am still very swollen and also my mon (pubie) is also very swollen but drained for the past 4 days. It was purple. very scary looking. On my right side is very sensitive and hurts to turn over in bed and to get up from sitting to standing. the garmet kinda keeps things solid. but last night i also felt round..do you have problems with elimination? I feel like my bladder is still half asleep. my doc took out 2700. after it was all done they stood me up and lipod alittle mre. then I felt like i was gonna pass out. 80 over 40 was the b.p but i am only taking ex strenghth tylenal. I have to go back to work tomorrow. i work in a hospital and i cant still bend over,, but my surgery hurt even after i had the ativan, litocaine and everything else. it was mostly on the right side. and i have to go for a mini tuck next year cause i had damaged skin from babies that wont shrink back and my surg doesnt do that part. well lets see how everthing works out in the next 6 months so your not alone with the swelling. keep me posted ok?

I has lipo of abs and flanks done April 28. I wasn't given water pills either, it is my understanding that it is dangerous to take them after this surgery. I was up 8lbs after from swelling and it was back down after day 3 post op. I still have some swelling and doctor said it will get worse before it gets better. I could see a big improvement at my doctors visit 3 days later. See my post and pics. Best of luck to you, hope all goes well! If you post a question for one of the docs on this site they will answer if for you.

I was given maxide it's a Blood Pressure plus HCTZ which is a diuretic I don't really think it works too well so I use a lasix 40mg every other day when I feel like i'm bloating. Hope this helps
Jennity, how are you feeling?? Are things any better for you??

Hi no I'm not worried at all. The swelling is going down good and its very noticable for two weeks. Sorry to hear about yours.

Well I am not trying to scare you but my Dr told me that some peoples bodies just swell a whole lot. I had smartlipo done Oct 27 2010, had my upper/lower ab, flanks and what I call bra fat done. Six months later no results. I swelled up so bad after surgery, and actually haven't even gotten back down to pre-op size. My Dr offered to do a re-touch but im scared I will just get bigger. So I hope you have good results with your surgery. Im getting a refund for mine.

I posted on here a couple of weeks ago..and what I said earlier about some peoples body just swelling a lot is a bunch of bull. I had lipo again on the 4th and barely swelled..have faith and I'm hoping yours will come out the way you like it and not have to have it done again to be satisfied.

I am freaking out.Your story is so familiar to mine (I had smartlip mpx 8 days ago and my stomach looks worse due to "swelling"). You had the surgery in March..please tell me you see results by now!!!
