Is severe pockets of fluid/bruising normal after calf circumference reduction?
Doctor Answers 4
You will have swelling in that area for quite some time. Please follow your post operative instructions and wear your compression garments.
Unlikely cause for concern
It's still very soon after your procedure, and swelling is definitely normal. Extended periods of walking will cause the swelling to increase. Wearing a compression garment will help reduce the swelling and move lymphatic fluid around. The long bruises are most likely a result of the cannula, which is the instrument used for lipo sculpture. If a few more days pass and the swelling gets worse, then you should contact an expert. Always make sure that any procedure is performed by a board certified plastic surgeon and that your doctor is aware of your post-operative recovery process.

is normal after liposuction. Walking, lymphatic massage, compression toes to knees, and hyperbaric oxygen are essential to this area. In a few weeks start RF treatments like exilis/venus legacy with shock therapy such as z wave or cellutone. Best, Dr. Emer
