Swelling may occur up to nine months post Liposuction surgery. The advice usually given by a plastic surgeon is that the patient should not "judge" the area for at least nine months after surgery.

In our practice, we perform combined liposculpturing with Cool Lipo technology and removal of excess skin. Since we perform our procedures under local anesthesia with light sedation as needed, most of our patients return to work in about one week.

Well, this really depends. Swelling varies from patient to patient. Usually up to 3 to 6 months. Bulge can mean several things though. It can also be that you have undid a stitch in the abdominal muscles. This will definitely cause a bulge. A hernia could be another reason. About 10% of patient's undergoing a tummy tuck will get a hernia in the abdomen.

Hi There, I had a tummy tuck and the swelling lasted about 3 to 4 weeks. It took me a good 3 months before i could stand completely straight. That was almost 6 years ago and having the tummy tuck was the best decision I ever made.

Patients who receive liposuction may be unhappy with the initial results of the procedure, as significant swelling is possible and indeed to be expected. However, one can expect the majority of this swelling to resolve after 1 to 2 months.

The duration of swelling will vary based on the type of surgery you had. If you feel that your swelling has gotten worse or should have gone away, contact your physician.
