I had liposuction on my stomach three weeks ago and I'm concerned that it hasn't really made a difference.

Healing and Results after Liposuction
Thank you very much for your question. Unfortunately, at three weeks post-op, it is too early to see the results from your liposuction procedure. It will take several months for your body to fully heal and all of the swelling to resolve. In three to six months, you should be able to appreciate the results from your liposuction procedure. If you have any further questions, however, I would recommend you schedule a follow-up appointment with your operating surgeon.

Thank you for your query. Some edema or swelling is expected in the first few weeks after surgery so the results may not look very convincing. One has to use a pressure garment during this period, at least for 3 months and then review the results as edema or swelling always time to settle down. So don't be disheartened and do visit your surgeon for regular follow ups and voice your concerns so that he can examine you personally.Best wishes,Dr Alexander +

What you are feeling is quite normal after a liposuction procedure. As you said first few days you could see an improvement. I am sure that you are experiencing a normal process of recovery after this type of surgery.I recommend to my patient to not to spend to much time in front of the mirror and measuring for the first 3 months at least because it can be frustrating.If you are not wearing a compression garment you should do it for the first six weeks and a course of manual lymphatic drainage could be helpful to speed up the result.Ask to your surgeon his opinion and be patient.Good luckMr giorgio Netri
