Liposuction - one area might have been missed
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
Your doctor is doing the right thing. You need to wait a full six months, at times longer, before you can know if the area has residual fat or is just swollen.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes, Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD
Lipo at 4 weeks
At four weeks you are likely still swollen. Best to give it 4-6 months to settle down. Good luck.......
Still Need to Wait & See
At this point it will be difficult to determine. You won't know your final results until about 6 months. I recommend adding RF treatments (Venus Legacy, Exilis, Ultra, Vanquish) along with shock/vibration therapy Cellutone/z wave and hyperbaric oxygen and compression in order to decrease swelling and improve results. Best, Dr. Emer
