Post liposuction

Everything you are seeing is normal and due to swelling. The appearance of your abdomen will continue to improve as you continue to heal. Be patient with your recovery, this is all normal following liposuction. Good luck with your recovery.

Post Liposuction Irregularities, Swelling -- Try Massage, Velashape or Venus Legacy With Your Compression

Swelling takes weeks to go away.  Massage, RF treatments and hyperbaric oxygen help.  Although I do feel you have a lot more than needs to be removed and it may be a 4D VASER HI DEF procedure you are looking for.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Swollen 2 weeks after lipo with aqualipo and smartlipo

There is no such thing as instant results after lipo. All types of lipo create swelling as the body heals. To minimize swelling and help it resolve quickly, frequent professional massages and a well fitted compression garment are essential in the first few weeks and months. It is unrealistic to expect final results or dramatic results soon after surgery especially if you were not obese when you started. Three to 6 months would be the time for final results to evolve.

Bad technique or poorly done by the surgeon. I stopped using this option 4 years ago. And returned my unit!

You are most likely just very swollen at this time. Wait a good 6 to 8 weeks before you decide. Then I would look at your before photos and compare them with your after results to help you to see if you did indeed have good results or your need more work done.
