What's the best anti swelling remedy post lipo? (1 more day to lipo)

Since I'm on the topic I'd like to share that I've had a TT 8 years ago. Decided go get lipo of the flanks, mons pubis, upper arms & possibly my abdomen for $695 (ps) & $400 (anesthesia) for a total of $1195.00. My ps was apparently in a great mood when he quoted me and yes he is the same ps that performed my TT. He did mention at my pre-op that "he'd already made money from me". I think it's just a blessing in disguise :) I'm 5'2 125 lbs and have had 6 kids.

Thank you for your question. While swelling will slowly subside three - six months following your procedure, the use of a compression garment will help. Please discuss any concerns with your board certified plastic surgeon. Hope this helps and good luck with your recovery.

I always recommend RF treatments externally like venus legacy, exilis ultra, Vanquish, shock/vibration therapy like Cellutone/z wave, hyperbaric oxygen and compression in order to decrease swelling and improve results. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well... I always recommend my patients to have their lymphatic drainage massages at least 10 times after the procedure.
