One Leg Swollen After Liposuction -- Liposuction Swelling After Surgery
It is normal to have asymmetrical swelling after liposuction but if you have symptoms please see your physician. It takes weeks to months for swelling to resolve. Lymphatic massage, hyperbaric oxygen and compression helps. Best, Dr. Emer.
One leg swollen after liposuction - normal after surgery?
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- I believe you need to see your surgeon to be examined.
- You are right - it is not normal to have one leg significantly more swollen after surgery.
- It may be from too tight a bandage but you leg needs to be evaluated and the cause of the swelling treated.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
