I Had Smart Lipo 5 Months Ago on my Arms, I Don't See Any Results, Should I Keep Waiting?

I still don't see any results after 5 months Doctor says to give it 6 months...can one more month really make that big a difference? I am so disappointed.

If you see no results five months after any form of liposuction surgery, they are not going to appear. Visible, albeit not final, results should have been evident weeks to a month after your procedure. This is an issue to be discussed at your six month postoperative visit.

It does take a while to see results with extremity lipo. However the key question is how much fat did you have as opposed to muscle bulk. That may be the limiting factor
