there is no effect on healing

Avoiding alcohol is due to pain medication and recovery. You do not want to mix it with pain meds or mask warning symptoms. For a large lipo over 3.5 liters, avoid alcohol for at least a week or several days after stopping pain meds. For a small or medium lipo, after a few days, a drink at home is fine.

I did email asking you for more info - did you not receive my email? I basically just had two glasses if wine as my boyfriend and had a huge fight but now not angry but still upset I am worried about what the alcohol has done to my body re healing? I am taking vitamin C, Arnica, antibiotics and anti swelling medication - as well as wearing a compression garment. I only had 1.5 liters removed but it is my brothers wedding in a week and I am worried I have ruined everything as now I will not be able to recover from the surgery re swelling and bruising?
