The lumps you are experiencing are most likely fat necrosis that have now become calcified pieces of fat that will most likely never go away.

Thank for the question, unfortunately, without examination it would be difficult to address your question. generally speaking, fat necrosis and calcification can happen after liposuction. Usually, it resolve over time and becomes less of an issue. But sometimes it does persist. If the lumps are small and not affecting the shape, then you can ignore them. If they are symptomatic then I suggest you see your plastic surgeon.

What are the lumps?  Is it fat is it firm hard tissue.    It is best to be evaluated in person. Good luck.
