Liposuction results are not immediate and Rome was not built in a day
Thank you for your question and the opportunity to explain normal wound healing.
While TV shows may depict immediate before and after results....healing takes time.
It takes a minimum of 6 weeks for normal scar tissue to build(CALLED THE PROLIFERATIVE PHASE OF WOUND HEALING ) and another six weeks for scar tissue to remodel (CALLED THE REMODELING PHASE).
Allow sufficient time to elapse for the normal course of wound healing to occur, approximately 6 months, prior to performing a final assessment of the results.
