I am four months after an abdominal liposuction and ab etching. I was not overweight, just love handles. The love handle area is still swollen and numb with creasing. My surgeon is concerned, but he said there doesn't appear to be anything wrong and I just need to wait it out. My question is, if there is something wrong, is there anything I should be doing about it or do I just do as he says and wait it out? In the last two months the swelling has hardly reduced at all.
A five month visit to my surgeon, and he was quite disturbed. He feels the hard swelling is definitely scar tissue, and he says it will never go away. He is trying to break it up using corticosteroid injections (internet says this will just soften the scar), and if that fails he says he would have to use a tummy tuck to ever look normal again. Opinions about the steroids or other thoughts/options? Should I trust him to do more surgery? Thanks!
