hello misstejay  

Many studies indicate that there is also less injury than the traditional liposuction method resulting in less pain, swelling and bruising. Final results can be seen 2-4 months later as the swelling continues to diminish and contours become more defined. You should contact or visit your PS about the concern. #stomach #flanks
