Scraped Feeling on Thighs After Smart Lipo

I had Smart Lipo done about 5 weeks ago. Parts of my outer and inner thigh feel like I scraped them on the sidewalk. Is that normal?

You description is difficult to understand.  Do you  mean they feel firm?  Thisis most likely do to swellling.  Usually this improves over 6-8 weeks.  Certainly the legs stay more swollen than other body parts.
