Liposuction - one side of pubis is still swollen

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.

  • The fullness is probably swelling.
  • It takes at least six months for everything to settle down.
  • But it is possible a little extra fat remains - so wait 3 months longer and then see your surgeon if your result still doesn't look right.
