Cellulite on thighs after smartlipo although no surgery near thigh area! What does this mean?

SmartLipo doesn't cause cellulite, but temporary swelling after smartlipo does a pretty good impression of it
Cellulite after lipo.
More than likely you are getting some swelling/ fluid that is moved into the thigh area. At 8 days post-op, I doubt you have suddenly enlarged the fat in your thighs that much. Since you commented that your abdomen is more swollen, with compression, the fluid has to go somewhere. It is easy for the fluid from the abdomen to travel into the pubic region and through the inguinal canal into the thighs. You may even see these areas look bruised, even though surgery wasn't done there.Just need to give it some time. If it concerns you, try some compression shorts to cover the inner thighs. Also start massages to help work the fluid out.Good luck.
