Thank you for your question. At a month, things should start to get a little softer. Avoid sitting too much of the day, and keep the area compressed with your garment. Consider the Velashape or Vasershape to soften the area. I hope this helps.

Tissue fibrosis is normal after laser liposuction.

Tissue fibrosis can be normal after laser liposuction. As you described it feels tight, hard and sometimes rather lumpy.

You should be given some instructions to help improve the appearance and feel of the fibrosis by your surgeon.

The more aggressive the treatment, the more common the side effect of fibrosis.

Rock hard and lumpy is a bit unusual after liposuction. The heat generated from the smart lipo may have caused this.
