I had Laser Lipo two weeks ago on my stomach and love handels. I am concerned due to still being so numb, tender and larger in the area's I have just had treated; It is truly effecting me as I have been asked if I am pregnant!!

I understand the full results can take up to four months but I don't understand why I am feeling like this.  I am now back at the gym and a followed the after care procedure.

Please advise

Many Thanks

Swelling at two weeks post liposuction (whether using a laser or other techniques) is the norm.  If the problem persists after several months, then your procedure was not successful and aditional traditional liposuction may be appropriate.
