It's too soon to see results.   Talk to your surgeon about compression undergarments to assist with healing.

Lipo on the pubes

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

the area is called fupa or the happy pillow. liposuction on the area is very effective.  one problem is compression.  most garments do not apply enough and effective compression in the area.  make sure you have enough compression.  5 days is too soon to judge. you will have swelling in the area and your final results can take many months to show

Be patient--final results with liposuction: add Venus Legacy, Exilis Ultra, Cellutone/Zwave to aftercare

It is too soon for your final results and you may actually have swelling 3-6 months after your procedure. 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.  If you need a hi definition outcome you may need to see a VASER HI DEF expert.  Best, Dr. Emer

It’s too early to see any liposuction results.

Five days out from liposuction is too soon to see any difference. Because of the pubis’s location, it’s more subject to gravity than other parts of the body. The force of gravity means that the post-surgical swelling will take some time to resolve. With liposuction of the pubic region, it usually takes about 2 to 3 months for the majority of the swelling to subside, and you should be able to enjoy your final results within 6 months. Wearing a compression garment may help to promote healing and reduce swelling.

5 days after liposuction is too early to see any results.  For the first 2 weeks you will have swelling and edema related to the surgery and fluid retention.  After 2 weeks the swelling slowly resolves over the next 6 weeks.  A compression garment will help with swelling, as well as massage.

Liposuction - no results after 5 days

Thank you for asking about your mons pubis liposuction.

Liposuction causes swelling so no one can see their results this early. Be patient and be prepared to wait six weeks to see much improvement and six months at the earliest to see your final result.

Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

There is an initial period ranging from days to a few weeks after liposuction where there is swelling of the tissue. It takes about 3 months to settle down; so its too early to figure out your final result.
