Did Lipo on abs, flanks and back and fat transfer to breasts. As you can see from the pictures am very swollen and very sore, lumpy and painful.I have gone through a lot of pain ...is this normal?Stomach areas still swollen and hard. Very painful especially getting in and out of bed. Is this pain going to get better? A lot of anxiety and my stomach is so warm, worried that this procedure was too much for my body. I have finished my antibiotic doze and am now on painkillers, due to the unexpected pain I have developed panic attacks and anxiety. Am so worried of getting complications.what can you prescribe to calm me down? I would have wanted to be smaller and how do I tell if I have retained water or not?

Liposuction - swollen and painful after 10 days
- Everyone who has liposuction is surprised by the swelling -
- It does take time to go down.
- However, one can have a seroma, a fluid collection.
- So please see your surgeon to be checked.
- If you are having panic attacks, that is not normal after surgery - and sounds very hard to live with.
- Perhaps you need to see your regular doctor for a prescription or referral to a therapist to help you through your healing period.
Swelling and pain after liposuction
Thank you for your question and pictures. It is hard to make a determination from your pictures is you are healing correctly or if you have a hematoma or infection. Have you been back to see your PS. If not, I suggest you make an appointment to see him or her ASAP.

Pain ad swelling after liposuction
It is very normal at this stage experience swelling ( this can varies from person to person).
The swelling can cause discomfort but again pain threshold is different in different patients.
If pain is significant this needs to be checked by your surgeon.
If not other worries in few weeks you will gradually go back to normal.
Ask to your surgeon about lymphatic drainage massage or endermologie as they can help you to recover quicker.
