Is it normal to have hardness on the waist after lipo? And when can I see a smaller waist line?

Liposuction - doesn't look right after 3 months
- 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.

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.
