Liposuction - doesn't look right after 3 months
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.'
- It sounds as though you are still swollen -
- Liposuction takes at least six months for swelling to subside -
- So wait another 3 months, then see your plastic surgeon for a follow up visit if the result is not what you hoped.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
I appreciate your concern, but it is still too early. There is still residual swelling and scarring from the procedure, and it is simply too early to worry. Allow 3 more months to recover, a total of 6 months postop, then visit your surgeon if you still have concerns. Try to stay patient, good luck!
Hello, thank you for your question. It seems like you are still swelling on your waistline. Residual swelling after liposuction may persist for 6 months. I would suggest you to have ultrasounds massages to improve the hardness. Have a great day.
Hardness after liposuction
Hardness reflects residual swelling which can take several more months to resolve. As for the pouch, photos would be helpful. You certainly could have excess skin which might have been best served by an abdominoplasty.
Lipo and healing
You have to give it about 6 months or so for things to heal and for the swelling to completely resolve. Best of luck.
It can take 9 months for all the swelling to go away after liposuction. But, close to 90% of the swelling is gone after about 3 months on average. By now, you should have a good idea of what your new contour looks like.
