Q: How Long Does It Take to See Final Liposuction Result?

A: How long until you can evaluate the final liposuction results

The answer here is fairly straightforward. You can rely on a final result of liposuction in most cases at 6 months post operatively.

If you saw results immediately and then saw those results decline, you are either seeing swelling(if early in the first 6 weeks) or you are gaining weight. However, if you gain weight after liposuction you do not typically see it in the areas that have been liposuctioned. You see weight gain in the areas that were not suctioned.

I hope this helps you sort things out, but be as patient as you can for the first few months.
