Not exactly sure how far postop you are from your procedure, however, it will take at least 3 months for the swelling to completely subside and up to 6 months for you to see your final results. So patience is a must. Also, if your plastic surgeon has you wearing a compression garment it is important to wear the garment for at least 8 weeks. As the garment becomes looser, you will require a tighter garment to keep the compression. You should certainly talk to your plastic surgeon about your concerns.

Swelling will subside in 2-3 months
You should have some mild soreness in the areas that were liposuctioned. You will have swelling usually in the lower abdomen an back and occasionally in the legs for the first few weeks. You should wear a garment for 6 weeks and wash and place it into the dryer to shrink it as it loosens. While most surgeons like garments, there isn't a consensus on them or how long to wear them.
