I fully agree with Dr. Hess. No board-certified plastic surgeon would recommend muliple liposuction sessions in the office and no compression garment afterwards! I would have just taken you to the OR so we could have done the whole treatment effectively in one session with one recovery. And I would have had you wear a compression garment for at least 6 weeks, and I would have recommended lymphatic massage starting about a week after the surgery. I also would not do a surgical revision of "lumps" for at least 6-9 months, as things continue to change after lipousuction for at least that long.
Above all, though, please check your doctor's credentials. "Board-certified" does NOT necessarily mean "Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery". A "cosmetic surgeon" is NOT the same as a "plastic surgeon". You have to specifically ask what board has certified your doctor, and specifically ask what kind of residency and fellowship training they did. Good luck!
