3 Months Post-op, Are These my Final Lipo Results?

I am 3 months post lipo and about 2,200cc of fat was removed to my lower body and stomach/love handles. Are the results I see now final? Or can I hope to see more shrinking during the nex few months? And if I want to do a touch up when is it safe to do so (for saddlebags & front thighs)?

Post op lipo

If you are only 3 months I weould say relax and wait soem more.It can take almost a year in soem cases to get to your final result,Heat and massage can speed up the resoluton of the edema.

Swelling can persist for 6 months and sometimes up to 1 year following liposuction.
