Is Water Pills safe?
Doctor Answers 2
I have never drained a patient after Smartlipo and i NEVER give water pills
it is very unusual to need to be drained after Smartlipo (I have done over 623 Smartlipo cases and never had to drain one). Also it is normal to have some swelling after Samrtlipo. it will go away over a week or maybe two. Every drug has some potential problems and this fluid, you body will get rid of without any medication.

Always Consult Your Dr.
I prescribe water pills to all my post op liposuction patients. I suggest going with your doctors post operative protocol and asking them directly this question. Best, Dr. Emer.
