I had Smart Lipo one week ago and I'm so swollen I can't put on shoes. Is this normal?

Swelling after liposuction that prevents you wearing shoes is not unusual but does require attention. Your surgeon should examine you and we use low dose water pills on occasion to help resolve problematic swelling.
Your swelling is more than normal

I suggest speaking with your physician again if problem continues. The combination of being a nurse and being on your feet for a prolonged period of time if the lower extremeties were involved will add to the likelihood of swelling. Please call your treating surgeon immediately for any questions regarding his postoperative protocol with surgery. Try compression socks and massages to alleviate some of the symptoms Best, Dr. Berger
