I would be patient and wait until all of the swelling subsides before I would make a decision whether or not additional liposuction is needed. This may take 6 months or more. Furthermore, I would wait at least 6 months or a year before proceeding with liposuction since the blood supply and wound healing in the flap area could be compromised if liposuction is done too early. Please follow up closely with your surgeon. Best of luck on your journey!
