lumpy after LIPO ???
Still may have to have some fluid drained but I already had quite a bit drained and now am wearing a tight compression garment 24/7. I only take off to shower and put a clean one on, wash the other in the shower and hang to dry for the next day. My PS said that the fluid would eventually go away but he likes to get it out to aid in healing faster. Keeping the garment on smooths out my legs.

I would do the compression garment too. I bet it helps a ton! Good luck!

I had lipo on my arms 7/21. I only take my compression garment off long enough to wash and dry. I hope it is tight enough. My outer arm was smooth before the surgery and he told me it would look the same. I don't see any lumpy or bumpy indentations on the outside. I felt a few under my arms but massage them and try to work it out. I go back to the Dr on the 27th and will ask more questions. So far I am happy with the appearance though my arms are still swollen. Let me know if you all find out any thing more.
With I will succeed.
