Liposuction - hate the result

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
  • You had a very very large volume liposuction
  • You are extremely swollen and cannot judge your final result yet.
  • The pain under your arm suggests that nerves in that area are irritated.
  • See your surgeon as often as you need to get support during your recovery -
  • If your smile or pain do not improve and your surgeon is unable to explain it or help you, please have a second opinion.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Post Liposuction Irregularities, Swelling -- Try Massage, Exilis Ultra/Cellutone or Venus Legacy With Your Compression

After 5 weeks you should be getting massage therapy, RF treatments and you will be swollen from aggressive approaches so compression is essential. I suggest speaking to your physician.  Best, Dr. Emer.
