At 7 months following tumescent liposuction of the abdomen/lower back/flanks and bra roll, it should be safe to have a "touch-up" liposuction.  That said, not everyone should necessarily have a second liposuction in the same area.  Your surgeon will want to determine if your skin tone is good enough to warrant another surgery and if there is a significant amount of fat remaining to justify the procedure.  Best wishes.

Thank you for your question.

Yes, as long as you don't have significant medical problems, it should be okay.  Check with your doctor to be sure before proceeding.

I hope this helps.
