Liposuction - bloated and doctor is out of town
Thank you for your question about your liposuction.
It is normal to be bloated after liposuction. It will not significantly improve for 6 weeks, although you will see improvement in 2 weeks and your final result in 6 months. Although your surgeon is not in your town, you should contact her/him for guidance in your compression garment and other questions during your recovery - phone calls, emails and texts are all commonly used these days.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes, Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD
