Liposuction - worried after 2 months
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- Good for you for getting back to working out.
- You look fine for 2 months - you are still swollen.
- You do not lose weight after liposucton - becuase the swelling replaces the fat.
- Of the removed 12-15 pounds of fat, then you need to lose that amount in weight to avoid eating it back and having it show up in new areas.
- It will be another 4 months at the earliest before you see your final result -
- be patient, get fit, lose the weight and chances are you will be delighted.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring / Tummy tuck / Mommy Makeover -- FEMALE HI DEF
If you are looking for a hi definition type result you may need that type of procedure. If you have loose skin you may need skin removal. Please see a VASER 4D Contouring physician. Best, Dr. Emer.
2 months after liposuction and still have lumpy, fatty, uneven stomach and belly button area.
Thank you for sharing your question and photographs and I am sorry that your current results have not been what you anticipated. At two months from full body liposuction you are likely still seeing the effects of aasymmetrical swelling which should improve over the next 4+ months. I know it is difficult but allow your results greater time to mature before assessing the need for a revision. Hope this helps.

Post lipo lumpiness
Thank you for your question. It is not uncommon to have some lumpiness at this time of hewing and numbness. They will continue to improve. In my practice we offer Venus legacy treatments after a month of surgery and we noticed it helps a lot. Please talk to your PS and he/she will suggest something which works for you.
