age 22 5'2" 120lbs pre op 1000cc taken from u/l abs, flanks, inner thighs
I had liposuction June 11th and I can tell a bit of difference, but I'm still concerned over my abs. My stomach is def. flatter, but considering my ps said I had "no fat left to take" there I thought i would have no pooch left! I know most people have swelling 3 weeks PO but I'm afraid I'm not swollen really anymore. When I touch my stomach standing up I barey feel any squishiness, and I feel hardness that I believe are my abs (no lumps). Which would mean even if the swelling was to completely disappear my stomach would still stick out some and not be completely flat ... I'm hoping I'm just being overcritical, and just need to tone my muscles when i'm cleared to.
Does anyone have any advice, similar stories, reassurance ? Thanks!
Absolutely - you can swell with lipo for 6 month, sometimes more. If you want a good 2nd opinion, check out the doctor q and a on realself.com. If you post before and after pics on the lipo board, you will surely get a few docs to chime in. Don't expect any response or much of one without befores and afters though.
