Swelling After Smart Lipo?

I had Smart Lipo to remove my love handles 7 days ago. However, I can not see any difference. Is it possible that I might be swollen and it is preventing me from seeing any difference? Thank you.

Yes, you are definitely still swollen from the procedure. You are going to experience swelling for the next couple of weeks. Hang in there, you won’t be disappointed.

First of all, you are probably still swollen from the procedure.  Second 150 cc's is not really that much tissue.  So don't expect huge changes!
