Hi Laredo! Today is Feb 11, 2011, I had lipo on Dec 8, 2010, with resulting lumps, bumps, bruises, swelling and assymetry and unevenness (left side of ab could be still swollen, so doc says I have to wait 6 months to decide if I need revision (see my other posts for more info.) The lumps did subside quicker after I started massaging myself 5x a day for 10 minutes each session. Now the lumps are mostly gone but I'm still tender around the belly button and expect this will subside as well. I'm so glad I found this site and have seen posts from docs and people who, the general concensus anyway, seems to say that 6 months is the possible waiting time to see true results. Good luck & keep us posted!

Hi Laredo,

Did your doctor recommend massage? I've heard this can help get rid of post-lipo lumps.
