You appear to be going in a nice direction. Remember allow yourself time to heal, I tell my patients up to 6 months. Keep up the healthy lifestyle and try to have a consistent weight as you wait for the results of your liposuction Good Luck!
Being that you are only 3.5 weeks post, and likely still pretty swollen, your results look pretty nice so far.
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- First of all - good for you for losing weight. Great achievement!
- Even though you are still very swollen, your photos show a really nice improvement.
- You will definitely see even more improvement as the swelling subsides -
- It can take a full six months for all swelling to go.
Always see a Board

Thank you for your question and photos. Individuals who’ve experienced significant weight loss often have stubborn fat that remains in addition to saggy skin. So to answer your question, yes, you were likely a good candidate for liposuction, but it’s difficult to make absolute statements without having examined you. Unfortunately, the body contouring process after dramatic weight loss is often a multi-step process and may require multiple surgeries to reach your level of desired improvement. You should give yourself at least a year to fully recover before exploring the idea of additional lipo. Best of luck.
Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided
information as well.. This is the surgical
procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most
performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order
to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It
can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin,
abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small
incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied,
it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After
liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months
after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment
for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at
least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many
time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain.
Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an
accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also
really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery,
that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your
body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use
compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure
and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing
it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on
your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult
with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than
fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed
performing a thigh lift.
It can take 2-3 months for all of the swelling to go down after liposuction, so I wouldn't make any assessments until that time.
You look better after liposuction. Give yourself a year and do not gain weight. I think you can be on the way to a nice result. My Best, Dr Commons
