One month is too early after liposuction To be concerned about contour abnormalities.

At one month it's impossible to comment about the fate of any contour abnormality. After six months of this persists some restorative treatment might be indicated.

Dents after liposuction

Most probably, over the months and massaging the area that dent will be much better. Swelling makes it look bigger.
After 3-4 months you will see the final result and evaluate if those dents fade or remain.
Be patience.
