I recommend avoiding smoking, and anyone who smokes, and drinking alcohol at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after surgery. Do drink plenty of water and eat a proper diet of fruits, vegetables and protein. Do avoid high salty foods and drinks. also exercise, least walking, is beneficial. also, please wear your compression garments as instructed.

Post Liposuction Irregularities, Swelling -- Try Massage, Velashape or Venus Legacy With Your Compression
Liposuction results vary on multiple different factors. The biggest factor would be who is performing the procedure -- their technique, skill, and experience. Post liposuction, massage, RF treatments and hyperbaric oxygen will drastically reduce swelling. I suggest seeking a board certified cosmetic dermatologist and following his/her pre and post operative protocol. Best, Dr. Emer
