I will start off with I am 41yrs old and I have always been approx. 110-115 pounds. I have 2 children from natural child birth. And I have never had any type of surgery before this.
I had smart lipo almost 3 months ago. My doctor said I was perfect for lipo instead of tummy tuck since my skin was not sagging and there was only a small amount to remove. I had it done on my chin, bra line, lower back, upper and lower stomach and did fat transfer to my glutes.
After surgery I wore my garment 24-7 but it was loose in the lower abdomen area I advised my doctor about it but he said it was fine.
After week 6 I had alot of fluid build up and large lumps in the lower stomach where the compression garment was loose. He drained the fluid and had some type of heat massage a few times on the lumps.
The lumps did not go away so the doctor decided to do touch up surgery a week ago, and it looks like I will still have lumps in my lower abs. I do deep massages on it but it does not seem to help. My husband was told by the nurse the day of the touch-up that I had alot of scar tissue. I'm horrified thinking I will look like this forever! My stomach looked better before the surgery! I will have to say that I am happy with the other areas that he did though.
What can I do to improve my results besides wearing a compression garment and deep massages? I am willing to try anything!!! As you can see in the picture my stomach molds to clothing and the lumps remain! I also added a picture of about a week after the initial surgery.
Although he is working with me to try and get the results I want he is not getting the results I want and expected.
