Swelling after liposuction will resolve

Swelling and fluid retention are normal after liposuction. I would suggest twice daily SwellX and massage therapy.

This is most likely due to swelling, which can last 3-6 months. I recommend adding RF treatments externally like venus legacy, exilis ultra, Vanquish, shock/vibration therapy like Cellutone/z wave, hyperbaric oxygen and compression in order to decrease swelling and improve results. Best, Dr. Emer

Revision lipo and weight

The weight gain is likely due to swelling and inactivity. You need to give it several months to settle down. Best of luck.
