Swelling Cessation with Hyperbaric Oxygen, Massage, Venus Legacy, Exilis Ultra

Yes, swelling will resolve within a few months after your procedure. I recommend adding lymphatic massage and hyperbaric oxygen along with your compression to help reduce swelling. I also recommend adding coolsculpting/vanquish for further fat removal, exilis/venus legacy for skin tightening, cellutone/z wave to make the skin smooth, remove scar tissue, and improve the appearance of cellulite. Best, Dr. Emer
