You should see results 6 weeks after any type of liposuction

Not final results, but at least some results.  I wouldn't expect your results to improve much after this point.  Perhaps your plastic surgeon (if he/she was indeed a plastic surgeon and not some other kind of doctor who took a liposuction weekend course!) wasn't aggressive enough in the approach.  Do discuss your concerns with him or her.

See surgeon to talk about results

Please return to your surgeon to discuss your results. You should have some improvement if enough fat was removed, although if there is a lot of excess skin then liposuction may not have been the right treatment for you in the first place. A tummy tuck may have been more suitable.
