One of the complications with liposuction is contour irregularities - feeling lumps or bumps or even having them be visible. Treatment options range from ultrasound treatment to help soften these areas to additional liposuction or even fat grafting to the deeper areas. There are a number of techniques to help improve this, but you need to be evaluated in person by a board certified plastic surgeon. 

Best of luck

Liposuction and lumpy

If you are lumpy after liposuction at three months, then it is unlikely that it will improve much more. Early on if it is lumpy, it could have been due to swelling which sometimes will soften with massage.
