I had Smart Lipo done on my upper arms 5 days ago. The right arm swelling is subsiding while the left arm is not.

Swelling Typically Lasts a Few Weeks
Smartlipo does tend to reduce the recovery time compared to traditional liposuction, but keep in mind that swelling takes several weeks to completely resolve. It's also not uncommon for different areas of the body to heal at different rates. At this stage of your recuperation, I don't believe there's any cause for alarm. Keep an eye on it and share your concerns with your surgeon at your next follow-up appointment. Best of luck.
