Lumps after Liposuction

+2

Within the first few months following liposuction the area can feel lumpy and bumpy for a while.  This ususally gets better with time.  There is scar tissue that is forming from your surgery and is usually the worst at around three months. Give it some time and it will get better,  your final result will be around one year post op.  Around your incision gets lumpy as well.  If you feel a lump under the skin at your incision line it may be a stitch that may be poking through.  Your doctor can remove it if it is bothersome to you.
