Schedule a visit with your surgeon - I had Liposuction of my abdomen and flanks 9 days ago and it seems abnormal. Any suggestion
It is very early in your recovery period. We typically expect to see swelling that will take several months to resolve. Since I do not have first hand information for your surgery, I highly recommend asking for an appointment to see your surgeon. Rarely, there may be fluid build up that would need to be drained (seroma), but only a physical exam can determine that. Swelling and hardness are very normal, but there's never anything wrong with seeking some reassurance from your surgeon.Good luck!
