Smart Lipo Triplex

I had smart lipo triplex 4 days ago on inner thighs and upper legs from knees to top. Very swollen right now and sore but minimal bruising. I can hear and feel fluid sloshing around in upper thigh on left. In office the staff wrote "fat" on some areas and "skin" on others. In areas where I know I had fat to be removed they wrote skin, does this mean they didn't remove fat from these areas? Anyone else have triplex and can comment?

The number of your questions and concerns indicates that you need a post-operative check with your surgeon to get the reassurance you deserve. No other surgeon can answer you as well if they didn't do the surgery, and aren't examining you.

Sloshing around meand fluid. Tio have fluid sloshing around in your thighs a few days after surgery is probably not good. Contact your doctor to be evaluated.
