Is it normal to have excessive menstrual bleeding after a Vaser liposuction procedure?

Is it possible to have a heavier than normal period if it comes within a few weeks after having the proceedure? Can menstruation increase the level of swelling?

Surgery (liposuction) is trauma to the body.
Stress hormones will often alter fluid retention and menstrual flow in the month after surgery.
