Best Remedy for Swelling After Tumescent Liposuction?

Q: What is the best thing to do after Tumescent Liposuction for swelling?

A:  Swelling after liposuction is to be expected.  Wearing your compression garment is extremely important to reduce swelling.  I generally recommend using this garment for about a month.  Some of my patients have benefited from lymphatic drainage massage starting about 1-2 weeks after their procedure – talk to your surgeon to see if you might have similar benefits.
