Tomorrow will be three weeks since I had abdominoplasty and liposuction. Today, I noticed that when I bent over my stomach is considerably lumpy! I am crushed! I saw the doctor on Monday and he told me I could switch from my compression garment to bicycle shorts which I did. Any suggestions?

Lumpiness 3 weeks after liposuction is extremely common. Some surgeons recommend the use of external massage, manual lymphatic drainage, endermologie, etc to promote softening of the lumps but this varies tremendously by practitioner preference.
Lumps after tummy tuck or liposuction
Hopefully your doctor told you that the normal healing process can result in areas of firmness or even lumps after tummy tuck and lipo. These usually go away with time (several weeks) and may be helped along by massage and a good compression garment.
