I am 1 week post-liposculpture and I know it's pretty early to ask but I'm worried. I had my back, waist, abdomen, hips, inner thighs and fat transfer to my butt worked on. I have a weigh in/ body taping for my job coming up in 2 weeks and I'm very swollen. I'm on naproxen, ibuprofen and arnica tea to help the swelling plus I'm wearing my compression garment. I'm really just freaking out that in 2 weeks I will not be at my weight or body fat that I'm required to be at. What can I do?! Help!!

Allow your body time to heal
Reducing swelling in dramatic fashion
You will decrease swelling by a course of steroids (Medrol Dose Pak). Maxide daily will decrease sodium and decrease swelling. Salt restriction to less than 1500 mg a day is a must. Eat nutritiously but minimally........1000 cal a day possibly. Exercise by lengthy walking. Before starting any of the above check with your surgeon. My Best, Dr C
