The more pressing concern, though, is the swelling and for that you absolutely need to talk to your PS. Despite your drains you could have a back-up of fluid (blood and/or serous fluid) and letting him or her know what your status is step #1. When you talk to your PS about this, you can also discuss the lipo.
I hope that this helps and good luck,
