I had lipo to remove my love handles two weeks ago. I drained for about a week and had 8 lymphatic massages and although having a difficult time finding a comfortable compression garment, I wear one every day. However, now that my skin is smoothing out,my left side is looking bumby and when I massage the area, I can feel the bumps and they hurt. I am now doing my own massages. What can I do to get rid of the bumps?

Bumpy skin after liposuction
I wouldn't worry too much. Continue massaging and wearing your compression garment. You need to give it some time. If after three months you feel as though the bumps are still prominent, I would advise you consult with your physician.

Bumps after liposuction
Bumps after liposuction can happen due to several things possibly: inadequate fat removal, fluid collections, and hematomas, or fat necrosis to name a few. In most cases, this gets better with time.
