With liposuction it is common not to see results for several months - even up to one year. It can also cause numbness and when the feeling begins to return it can feel like pain or muscle spasms. Anyone that goes in on Friday and expects to be back to normal in two weeks is not having realistic expectations. You will be swollen for a period even as much as 6 weeks after the procedure. You need to wear a compression garment for 6 weeks and the longer you wear it the better off you will be.
