This is my 2nd treatment with the miraDry procedure and, just like the 1st time around, my torso/waist experienced swelling 3 days afterwards. My torso feels like it's carrying extra fluid and it would jiggle whenever I walk. Any idea what can be causing this and what treatments can be performed to speed up torso swelling recovery?

Swelling with Miradry
This is most likely due to the fluid injected for pain relief and should resolve over a few days
Miradry for underarm sweating
Liquid that was injected

Oedema or excess fluid from swelling- don't worry.
To answer your specific question about what treatments can be performed to speed up recovery -
1. Corset - this will contain the swelling to the upper areas ie. Armpits and chest
2. Lymphatic massage- this is probably the best solution
3. Time, it all settles within a week or so.
Nothing to worry about.

MiraDry and compensatory sweating
Swelling can occur after miraDry and is usually lymphatic swelling and resolves spontaneously over a variable period of several weeks. Bioflavonoids and bromelain will help resolve the inflammation sooner and I highly recommend them to my patients.
