Over 3 months after Lipo on my love handles and I still have them?

Liposuction - the fat is not gone!
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
Strange as it is, it takes a long time for swelling to leave a surgical area. You may be right - there may be residual fat - but you should wait another three months to be sure. Then return to your surgeon to discuss the problem.

It takes several months and up to a year to completely get over all of the swelling resulting from liposuction. Before and after pictures would help to better assess what you are seeing. Also knowing approximately how many cc's of fat were removed would give a better idea of what an be expected.
Lipo to love handles 3 month ago
you are starting to see some result now and this is normal, it will improve more in the next few months as the final result can take you six to twelve month. Be patient,keep massaging and if you are worried have a chat with your surgeon.
