this is normal. its just the fluids draining and gravity doing its thing. give it 2-3 days and it will go away. Im about 2.5 weeks post lipo and had the same thing. bruising will also set in about 48 hours post op. it takes time but after about 2-3 weeks Im starting to see my shape.

What is happening, I think, is that swelling at your lipo site is preventing full lymphatic drainage. The swelling you see is scary, but as you heal it should go right away. I do not know how tight is advisable for your post surgical garments, so you should ask. You do want plenty of pressure, though.
