liposuction of buffalo hump
Aug 1, 2008

Its been a week since I've had liposuction on my buffalo hump, it's still there but not as much. Is this swelling or should I ask to see if I could have it redone.? I really can't afford that now.But....

Response from Dr. Henry

Outcomes from liposuction of buffalo humps is variable but usually some short term benefit is seen. There can be swelling from the procedure obscuring the benefit for a while. If disappointed with outcome need to discuss with your plastic surgeon and HIV specialist. KH

Why so many side affects?
hiv medication
