3rd post op (BBL) and I think I look exactly the same. Should I be worried? (Photo)

I remove my faja today for the first time, and got totally upset and depressed for all the pain I am going through and I think I look exactly the same. It is 3 days ago I got my surgery done, should I be worried? Is it going to look better? I hate my hips I just wanted them gone completely

Looking at your photos I assume they are in the oposite order. Looks like you have significant improvement in the shape of your waist and back due to liposuction. Is hard to assess volume difference from this view but looks like your buttocks is more round. 3 days is too short to assess any difference and you are probably swollen around the buttock as well. Give yourself 5 more weeks to really tell and keep wearing your garment. Congratulations on your recent procedure. Enjoy!

3 days post op

Either the post operative recovery time wasn't explained or you are just being impatient. Regardless, 3 days is way too early to be concerned about appearance. Swelling will last for up to 6 months but you will have a better idea around 6 weeks. I can already see an improvement so relax and focus on a healthy diet and using your compression garment. Best of luck
