I had full body LaserLipo on August 4 (almost two months ago now) and my stomach is still kind of pouchy

On August 4, I had full body laser lipo, I did my chin, arms, bra fat, stomach, knees and thighs done. I have definitely shrunk and ive been wearing a full body compression garment this whole time, I only take it off to shower because honestly I feel so weird without it. Ive noticed that my hips (they took out a lot of fat and created a waist for me) and stomach are still hard and swollen, my stomach kinda sticks out. Will this go down? I went from a 154 to a 139 now. Is swelling still to be expected?

I suggest the proper postoperative care including RF treatments and massage.  Start exercising and stretching.  If after 6-12 months you still feel this way then a revision procedure should be performed.  Best, Dr. Emer.
