How Long Will Soreness Last? - Punta Gorda, FL

I had vaser liposuction done 6 days ago. I am getting around fine but am really sore. My genital area is extremely swollen and bruised. I was told by a friend who went through this to wear a long panty girdle (one that fits directly under your breasts and goes down to middle thigh). This way, the lymph drainage will not "pool" in the genital area. Has anyone tried this? I am now wearing one but find I still need the compression garment as it is more sore without it. But I lay down once in a while and loosen the compression garment and massage the area hoping to reduce the swelling some.

It has been 2-1/2 weeks since my procedure. I am still swollen and abs feel very hard and tight. I did play 9 holes of golf two days ago. At the end of the round, I felt really sore. I did not have any after effects at all once I quit. I was told to do activity "as tolerated" and that it wouldn't hurt me. I haven't been massaging it but read where you should do so. I started massaging it last evening and I do feel better this morning. I plan on wearing the compression garment for at least 4 more weeks. I'm still sleeping in it as well but have had to loosen it a little since I'm swelling more.

Excellent. I was concerned about what I thought was excessive drainage after I got home. I called him twice that evening. He listened to me and told me that he felt what I was doing was perfectly normal, but he offered to look at me that evening. I decided not to go see him as I felt much better after talking to him. He was right in that the drainage did stop. His attitude was very professional. He was very concerned about my well being (both physical and mental). I would recommend him.
