Loose Skin 2 Days After Lower Ab Liposuction

I had liposuction two days ago on my lower abs. I am wearing my compression garment and I know I will have some swelling as it is expected that I am going to go through an "ugly phase". I would like to know if this is how my tummy is supposed to look?

Abdominal skin after liposuction

Your skin may have an irregular appearance immediately after liposuction due to swelling and bruising in the treated area.  You should wear your garment for at least 4 weeks and over time the contour should develop a smoother appearance.  As long as your skin was relatively smooth before the liposuction, it should end up with an even contour.
