Should I do a lipo revision? I can't see any results one and a half months afterwards

I got lipo 1 and a half months ago and I see no results. I read through so many reviews and it seems like all the women who saw immediate results had success and women who did not see immediate results ended up never seeing a difference. Will doing lipo a second time help? Or does my body just not respond to this procedure?

Swelling after liposuction

Swelling after liposuction can last anywhere from 2-4 months. It is best to wait until all the swelling has subsided before moving forward with any kind of revisional surgery. I would definitely discuss your concerns with your board certified plastic surgeon in order to see what is going on. Hope this helps!

Liposuction result

Thank you for your liposuction question,

  • Results from liposuction are usually evident after 6 weeks,
  • With the final result apparent at 6 months,
  • Some people do not see as much improvement as others,
  • This is most often men who have stomach liposuction 
  • And women having small areas treated.
  • And sadly at times, people eat too much and fat returns despite liposuction.
  • But before deciding on your result, please wait a full six months! Best wishes.

Consideration of a revision 1 1/2 months after liposuction is premature.

There is still a sizable amount of swelling in an area treated by liposuction 1 1/2 months after the procedure. Wait at least six months before passing judgment on the operation.

Liposuction results

At one month after liposuction, it is a bit early to see the final results. It usually takes 4-6 months to see the final results. Best of luck.
