Lipo at one month
First, you are only one month out and some of what you see may be swelling. The other thing is that you may have been a better candidate for a tummy tuck because it looks like loose skin. Best to wait 4-6 months and then re-evaluate.
Liposuction and fat
To see the final results, it may take over 6 months for the swelling to go down and for the skin to contract in appropriate candidate. Revision or touch-up of liposuction may be performed if necessary.
Patients need to maintain or lose weight for the best results.
At times, a tummy tuck may address the abdominal contour best.
