How long does swelling last after liposuction?

Answer

According to New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Zevon, swelling is typically gone within three months after liposuction. Patients wear a compression garment for the first month after surgery, in part to reduce swelling.

Dr. Zevon indicates that within 72 hours of surgery, swelling reaches its peak and levels off. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie advises that, during the first month, a patient's weight often increases, but this is normal. The additional weight is due to swelling and water retention, according to Dr. Motykie. After about 30 days, swelling is reduced by half, states Dr. Zevon. He asserts that, after three months, swelling stops, and the targeted region reaches its peak appearance.
