Revision at 19 Weeks?
At 3.5 mos you should be getting close to your final result. It is reasonable to wait until 6 mos post-op before doing a revision. The problem with AWAKE in office liposuction is that patients cannot be made comfortable enough for the surgeon to do a thorough job and the results are compromised. Often these procedures are performed by physicians who are not certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who have not invested in,or are not qualified to work in a fully certified outpatient surgical facility. The concept sounds appealing, and it is sold as being less expensive, but you end up getting what you paid for. Except now you have to go back for a revision at additional cost. Better to have it done right the first time.
Still Could Be Swelling
It can take 3-6 months for all swelling to resolve, so these might not be your final results. In addition to compression, I always recommend RF treatments (Venus Legacy, Exilis Ultra, Vanquish) along with shock/vibration therapy like Cellutone/z wave with hyperbaric oxygen in order to decrease swelling and improve results. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Tissue tightening after liposuction in Los Angeles
There is definitely some swelling. I would consider our Hidef Liposuction Revision protocol which can further improve results. Since you just had surgery, I would focus on non surgical options such as multiplane tissue tightening, Yag laser, Exilis RF, lipocavitation, and Ultherapy to enhance results.
