I am 5 days post op from abdominal, thigh, upper arm lipo. I was put under general anesthesia but I believe the tumesant technique was also used. It was much worse than I expected. I have been very sore and bruised/ swollen. I am finally starting to not feel as sore and able to walk around and get out of house for a couple hrs. I am going back to work tomorrow. I understand that the full result will not be seen for months. My question is will the majority of the swelling decrease over the next 2 weeks. Will it gradually do down slowly , or will i be this swollen for months. I have a follow up Friday. I just get discouraged not knowing what to expect.
