I had lipo of my abdomen, flanks, back, hips and and inner and outer thighs done 4 weeks ago today! I am very pleased with the results so far because my contours look great. I've lost 13 lbs. from just the lipo so far. However, for the past 2 and a half weeks I have been eating very, very well (I know for a fact that I am consuming less than what I am burning) and I am working out alot (40mins-1 hr on the ellipitcal every other night), but I haven't lost one pound! Why can't I lose more? :(
Losing Weight After Lipo - Exercise and Proper Eating Not Working!

Concentrate on muscle tone rather than the bathroom scale
Too early to worry
Time is your friend
Congratulations! You look great! Liposuction in combination with excellent eating habits and exercise provides by far the best results. You are already heading there.
At four weeks out, there is still a considerable amount of water from the procedure your body hasn't yet shed. When this occurs you will see some pounds miraculously disappear. Now you can think more in terms of maintaining your desired look, and dimensions, and less in terms of actual weight.

Congratulations on your great result!
You may not want to focus too much on your weight right now. The guidelines for weight loss are 1-2 pounds per a week and you don't appear to have much fat on your body. Keep up the exercises and proper diet.
Weight loss after lipo
You look good and don't look like you need to lose much more weight or that you have much excess fat. As you exercise, you will build muscle which will counteract weight loss. At this point it is more important what you look like than exactly what you weigh.
Your body may be holding onto all the current weight knowing that it would not be healthy to lose more. If you watch The Biggest Loser, you will know that weight loss varies from week to week quite dramatically despite doing all "the right things."
Swelling can account for weight persistence.

Weight Loss after Liposuction?
Thank you for the question picture.
Based on a description, your liposuction surgery has been successful in improving your contours. At this point, in order to achieve further weight loss you may be best served working with other professionals such as personal trainers etc. Keep in mind as you build muscle you may not see a decrease in your weight.
Personally I would suggest mixing up your workout routine.
