Stiffness and pain in morning five days after liposuction
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
What you describe can be quite normal after an extensive liposuction. Cold weather tends to make any muscle and surgical pain worse. Ask your surgeon about stretches that you can do to loosen up the tissues. I assume you are wearing compression garments for support.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you contact your surgeon to discuss your concerns.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
