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.
That varies from person to person.
I have a question? How long does the hardness and swelling of a blown vein last from using drug usage? What gets the swelling out and what the rednes?
Following tooth extraction swelling can last up to a week.
No longer than 3 or 4 days.
Reactions normally last less than one day but it depends on how allergic the person is and how and how long they were exposed. Contact your doctor if you become worried.
I received restylane injections, and had a bad reaction extreme swelling. Now I am reading that benzodiazepines may have been the cause. I took only .25 mil lastnight to sleep, however, how long will the negative effects and swelling last. Can I do anything to minimize the swelling?
It will take at least 4 weeks to fully recover it will also change colour about 4 times
You will recover in a few weeks from surgery, but a full recovery can take 3 to 4 months of physiotherapy
If the swelling is an allergic reaction to the medication you should imediately take an antihistamine like Benadril to counter-act the reaction. Do NOT take any more of the hydrocodone pills and consult your doctor as soon as possible.
Put on the ice immediately, it should calm the swelling.
Occasionally, not always. Shingles generally produces a very painful inflamatory rash, and occasionally produces swelling.
