Still Sore 8 Days After Liposuction

Swelling and discomfort can last anywhere from 3-6months and possibly longer depending on the extent of the liposuction performed. Please follow your surgeons post op instructions. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

One week after liposuction
VASE has a potential for being aggressive. When the procedures done using General Anastasia patients can have a slightly longer recovery. Sometimes aggressive liposuction is indicated to get the best results.
When that's the case patients will generally be sore for a little bit longer.
You may want to keep in touch with your plastic surgeon and be evaluated if you think this is more than what you had in dissipated or you think there something wrong.
