An unfortunate outcome
I have followed your posts but have not seen a long-term follow-up from you.
At this point, you're several months out from your procedure.
When addressing poor results from liposuction, it's crucial that an understanding of what the inherent issue is is made correctly.
Sometimes the liposuction may have been done unevenly. Sometimes there may have been a fluid collection, also known as a seroma.
Sometimes the liposuction was simply overdone.
Once the true etiology of the problem is made, it can then be addressed.
At this point, I hope your results have improved at least somewhat.
Best of luck,
