Nearly 4 weeks post-op & no real difference to my ankles? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 3
It is way too soon to judge
between 2 weeks and 2 months before you can start to see differences
and that you will continue to improve for 6 months.
I think ankles and calves because they are closer to the ground, are even
slower to see a change. Wait until you are at least 3 months after surgery
before you expect any changes.
also when you are relaxing, try and elevate your ankles above your heart level
and when walk or exercise, try and wear a support garment over your lower legs including your ankles
to above the areas which had Smarlipo.
be patient and you will most likely be pleased.
