First of all, I'd ask a quick question of you: Are you a smoker? Nicotine can significantly impact healing and I've seen patients who are smokers have nodularity and hardness for a very long time after liposuction. In non-smokers the nodularity and hardness usually resolves at around 6 months (or sooner). Pain is unusual at 8 months post-op so you may want to see your surgeon. I recommend lymphatic massage at a center that specializes in this kind of massage.
8 months ago I had laser lipo done on my abdominal upper and lower. I still have burning and hardness feeling; is this normal?

Laser Liposuction Post-surgery hardness
Post Liposuction--Irregularities, bruising, swelling, lumps
Good question.Have you followed up with your surgeon? To have pain and lumpiness 8 months out from surgery is not normal.
