Most everyone is asymmetric, even in their trunk and thighs. In my experience, it is quite common for patients to not be aware of their asymmetries in their face, breasts, and body before surgery. After surgery, they tend to overscrutinize themselves and their results, even before giving themselves a chance to heal. the asymmetries that were present before surgery now appear as "new" even though they were present all along. Review of the pre operative photographs is very helpful in reassuring the patient that all is OK and nothing adverse has happened.

During the performance of liposuction, a large amount of fluid is placed underneath the skin to distend it and make fat removal easier. Next, an ultrasonic probe is inserted under the skin to liquify the fat. Finally, a thin tube called a cannula is attached to a suction source and inserted into the fat to remove it.

All of this is, like any surgery, is traumatic to the tissues and results in a fair amount of swelling after surgery. It takes several days to reabsorb the fluid placed at surgery. The swelling takes much longer to resolve, typically a few months. Much of the asymmetries and irregularities seen early after surgery are resolved with the simple passage of time. Be patient, things get better each week after surgery!
