This is what happens when you undergo 360-degree liposuction of the legs. I typically divide this type of work into two sessions to avoid this issue. The lymphatic system which normally removes fluid from the legs is overloaded with fluid from surgery and from healing. Use full length compression stockings and elevate your legs from time to time.
It sounds like you had a lot of fat removed. It can take several months for all of the swelling to resolve, especially in the legs. Continue to wear compression as instructed. Good luck.
It will take several months for the swelling to go away completely. In the meantime, try to wear compression hose and keep you legs elevated as much as possible.
Swelling takes weeks to months to go away after liposuction. I suggest lymphatic massage and good compression. venus legacy/velashape treatments will help. Best, Dr. Emer.
It takes a good 3 to 6 months for all the swelling to go away. You should see a noticeable difference at 6 weeks so be patient. Good luck.
