Doctor Requires No Follow Up Appts

- 7 May 2009
I am fit, active and relatively small (5'5 & 125lbs) but had a small area on each inner thigh that has always bothered me. I saw an ad in the local paper for SmartLipo and visited a couple of clinics...I am fairly pain-tolerant but the procedure was a little painful! I had drainage for over a week and still have bruising over two weeks out. I am also the same size as I was before the procedure. I am hoping after time I will see some results!
The smart lipo clinic I went to is now vacated and I haven't seen the doctor since my procedure (3 weeks ago). He didn't have me come in the day after and said the only reason for a 2 week follow up was to check for infection. He said if I wasn't having any problems he didn't need to see me now. Does anybody know how long I need to wear the compression garmet and can I return to running several days a week?
No. Physician not availabe for follow up, the procedure room was not clean, and all equipment not sterilized before the procedure.
