#Liposuction - long does it take for space to collapse?
In your case, however, there is a concern for fluid reaccumulating within the space that was occupied by the lipoma. It may need to be aspirated again, or, at the extreme, a drain may need to be reinserted (this is required only rarely). You'll have to be assessed by your surgeon and then a decision made on the basis of that.
I hope that this helps and good luck,
