#Liposuction - Liposuction on the inner thigh
The specifics of your treatment, including when you'll see results, depend on what you looked like before and on exactly what your surgeon did (how much fat removed and from which areas) so you'll need to talk to him or her to get answers to your question.
In general, though, it takes about 4-6 weeks to see 80% of the result, 3 months for 90% and 6 months (or even longer) for the final result (based on my experience).
I hope that this helps and good luck,

To be sure, see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery. I hope this helps.

- Generally the liposuction garment is worn for 2 - 6 weeks, depending on whether you find it comfortable and helpful with swelling.
- Your final result will take 6 months to appear.
- Tissues swell after liposuction and it takes time for swelling to subside.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Lack of results inner thigh liposuction
I'm a little surprised your doctor did not review the healing process with you before your procedure.
I am also a little curious why am your doctor did not review the use of compression garments as well.
Almost all plastic surgeons in the United States supply compression garments and give a detailed postoperative instructions.
The healing process and expected results are usually discussed during the consultation.
There's no way of telling if 500 mL is an appropriate amount to remove or not.
There are too many variables.
Inner thigh liposuction is technically difficult and often does not meet patient's expectations unless results and potential results are discussed in detail before the procedure.
It would be unusual for someone such as yourself to not have the inner thighs touch after inner thigh liposuction.
If so much fat was removed that the inner thighs did not touch you would most probably have it disfigurement and serious and irreversible skin problems.
you can start judging results at around six weeks but 3 to 6 months is more realistic before results are final.
Please follow up with your Doctor and ask him or her about your concerns and the appropriate postoperative garments to use.
on a side note I supposed to word gourme could be associated with lack of results after liposuction in other ways.
