You’ll see a noticeable difference in the shape of your body soon after surgery. Improvement should become even more apparent after about four to six weeks however, when most of the swelling has subsided. After about three months, any persistent mild swelling will usually disappear and the final contour will be visible.
If you have realistic expectations, you should be very pleased with the results of your surgery. You may find that you are more comfortable in clothes and more at ease in your own skin. You can help to maintain your new shape by eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise, as well.
A more proportional look will emerge as healing progresses. A slimmer body contour can help you feel more confident and comfortable.
