Maybe your problem is unrelated to your lipo

Go see your doctor. A skin problem can't be accurately assessed without an examination in person. Itching can be due to many factors.

Itching after SmartLipo

Triciana, Thank you for your question.  It would be unusual to have an infection this far out after surgery, but not impossible.  Redness and warmth of the area can be additional signs of infection.  Itching can be a part of the normal healing process.  I would recommend following up with your surgeon to be certain there are no issues.  All my best!Dr. ElizabethAtlanta Face and Body Center"This answer has been solicited without seeing this patient and cannot be held as true medical advice, but only opinion.

Post Liposuction Irregularities, Swelling -- Try Massage, Velashape or Venus Legacy With Your Compression

Post liposuction people have itching and this is resolved with radiofrequency, hyperbaric oxygen, massage, oral antihistamines and time.  Please see an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.
