It's too early to worry. There is still a lot of swelling at two weeks and you really can't judge yet. Everything looks good in the photos for this stage, it's best to wait until at least 3 months out before judging your results.
Thank you for asking about your
- I am sorry you aren't seeing results.
- You are swollen and it will take weeks - in fact months - to see your final result.
- Arrange to see your surgeon to discuss your results -
- And compare your before photos with photos done at the visit -
- It often helps a lot.
Always see a Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Best wishes - Elizabeth

Congratulations on your weight loss and body contouring! Your skin appears smooth without redundancy which is great. As for definition, you need to allow swelling to resolve before making any judgements, and the resolution of edema can take months. Make certain to discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon to optimize your post operative care, and try to reserve judgment until your result is more mature. Best of luck with your recovery!
You are still very early postop and you cannot judge your result until at least 3-6 months after surgery. Everything will be swollen and will take time. Keep in touch with your PS - I usually recommend compressions garments for 6 weeks postop.
