How long does it take to see results after liposuction?


Initial results can be seen immediately post-operatively in many cases. However, after about a week, there is usually more swelling, and this can hide some of the results. The best results however, are usually seen some months after liposuction, as the skin contracts/tightens, and as a result the treated areas smoothen and firm.
