Advice for Aftercare After Liposuction

I had tumnescent liposuction done in France 5 days ago. (im from uk) Heard that cellulite gets worse after and now am worrying! a) would you recommend endermologie/mesotherapy after lipo? b) how soon should I start one of these? c) how tight should the compression garment?. I had to buy my own and its quite loose around tummy, should it be very tight? i dont want lumps! no results whatsoever so far, legs look same as before, the surgeon operated for about 30 mins under local, do you think he maybe did not take enough fat?

It is always best to get the directions of surgical aftercare from the doctor who did your surgery. Compression garments are usually not one size-fits-all and are suggested by the doctor's office usually after measuring you before surgery.

Every doctor's after care instructions are different. You should contact your doctor for proper instructions.  I usually have my patients were a conforming garment for 3-6 weeks.

Call the surgeon for his specific instructions. Why would I recommend what I do for my patients since I do not know you or your specific medical issues.
