The swelling can be significant for several weeks after surgery.  The resolution of swelling over the liposuctioned areas may take 6 months.

Swelling after revision

Usually the majority of the swelling  will go away in 6-8 weeks.  There will be residual swelling for several months to follow. Be patient.
