What do I need to do if I have a lot of liquid build up after liposuction/BBL? Can I take medicine for instance? (Photos)

Thank you for your question.
Lymphatic Drainage massage (specially if you still have a drain) are the best way to avoid inflammatory liquid accumulation. Yes, they hurt but, it gets better within a few days. Making the garment tighter is a way to leave less room for liquid to accumulate, but it should not be to the point that it doesn't let you breath or that it is extremely uncomfortable.
Good pain medication 30 mins before your massage may help you get through them better.
Hope this clears your doubt.
Good luck in your recovery,
Dr. Fernandez Goico
