Soreness After Liposuction

Hello. The discomfort under your breasts is a normal response. If this is your only symptom you have nothing to worry about. If the pain increases or the areas begin to swell, you may want to consult your plastic surgeon.

Post-lipo soreness

It is possible to have residual soreness about 8 weeks postoperatively. This is dependent on a variety of factors including the amount liposuctioned and the degree of postop bruising. It should continue to resolve over time.
