Liposuction line sculpting.

I had liposuction 4 weeks ago and my doctor sculpted a line down the middle of my stomach. How long before I start to see the sculpted line?

Liposuction - when do I see results?

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.

  • Swelling is the issue for everyone who has liposuction.
  • You may see the line after 6 weeks 
  • But the swelling will not be gone fully until 6 months at the earlieset -
  • So you need to give yourself a lot of time to see your final result!

Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Liposuction and sculpted line

It will likely take 4-6 months to see the final result as you have to allow for the swelling to subside.  Best of luck.
