It can take several months for the final results. In our practice, we recommend VASER Hi Def for the most contouring and along with ThermiRF, Velashape, Venus Legacy, Thermage etc. Please see an expert.
Too soon to tell
It is too soon to tell. Your legs will be swollen for a while. You need to give it at least 6 months to settle. Best of luck.
Thank you for posting your question. At five weeks after the procedure, swelling is normal and expected. Even though half of the grafted fat is usually reabsorbed, the process is gradual and takes months. Your body needs time to reshape and adjust itself after the procedure, so be patient and follow up closely with your physician.
