Lumps after liposuction

Lumps after liposuction can be fluid collections or areas of under treament, or fat necrosis. It is hard to say without an exam.

Vaser Liposuction

A small lump is normal and will go away with a massage of the area or use of vasershape on the lump.

Lump after VASER

Slight irregularities after any type of lipoplasty is not abnormal. A discrete fullness or lump after VASER may be residual fat or more likely an untreated seroma that consolidated and fibrosed. Massaging over the next 2-3 months may improve this. Also, your doctor may feel that a small corticosteroid injection may help decrease the inflamation and fibrosis around this fullness and enable decompression or redistribution of this lump. You will need to follow closely with your surgeon to optomize your results.
