I had Smart Lipo 3 weeks ago to my stomach, will the bumps and unevenness go away? (photos)
8 months ago
I had Smart Lipo 3 weeks ago. The indentation in my right flank appeared the next day after my surgery and the bumps/indents on my stomach appeared just a few days ago. I wore my compression garment 24/7 for 20 days but finally took it off because I thought that it was making my right flank indentation worse. Will these go away on their own?

Sorry to tell you the techniques used were not followed as they should have been... Was your surgeon a boarded Plastic Surgeon?? Did you have regular lipo removal of the melted fats? Was your operation under local or Sedation + Local (preferred)...
At this point you have to let the swelling subside. Some surgeons recommend massage. Best to ask your surgeon what post-op instructions you should follow.
Thank you for posting a photo on the area. It is
completely normal to have unevenness after Smartlipo, this will eventually
subside. The lumpiness is due to swelling; please continue to wear your compression
garment to help control any swelling that may occur post procedure
