I undergone what should have been laser assisted liposuction, but seems that my doctor tricked me and performed classic dry lipo since I was under general anesthesia and couldn't see what they were doing.
Now I'm 8 days post op and instead of love handles have pretty large hematoma in right abdomen region. I also had other bruises, one even migrated to my groin area but seems they're resolving, however this one got pretty hard and I'm really concerned.
There was post op. pain, but was manageable. Stuff was kind, but that's all I got. They tricked me to pay the tag for laser liposuction, but I'm 99% sure they've performed classic, not even tumescent because probably they wanted to save on anesthetics!! They've told me I'd be awake, only slightly sedated, but I felt completely asleep the same moment I was put on the table. I had to pray them to stay the night at the hospital, because their policy is strictly "outpatient" for this kind of surgery. Heaven's sake I was barely able to walk even the next day!!
My PS said that I should wait for 2 weeks more and if it's the same he will drain it with low diameter cannula. Can waiting for so long impair skin tightening effect from the laser (if it was used at all), since collagen starts to be active after roughly 5-7 days post op.? Please elaborate on this. Second question, should I use Heparin gel locally, can it help dissolve the hematoma? Thank you Best regards
