Post Liposuction Hard Lump after One Year
Thank you for your question. During Liposuction some fat can be injured but not removed by the aspiration cannula.
If the fat is irreversibly damaged the fat dies and forms scar tissue which produces a hard lump.
This tissue can be removed surgically.

It sounds like you have fat necrosis from your previous procedure. If it is firm at a year, it may need to be excised. An exam would be helpful in determining this.
Lumps and discomfort after abdominal liposuction
It sounds like you have an area of fat necrosis: some of the fatty tissues lost blood supply during the procedure and got hard and uncomfortable. Over time most firm areas of fat necrosis slowly improve. If there is not a steady trend for improvement you may need to have these areas surgically removed, especially if they are uncomfortable or unsightly.
