Massage the hard spots after smart lipo
Massage will expedite the resolution of hard areas after lipo. It needs to be a firm professional style massage and it should be done frequently. The best time to start is right after the procedure, but it's not too late to see benefits.
It is not unusual to experience swelling and lumps for several weeks after surgery. Deep tissue massage can expedite the healing process.

Swelling and lumps can last 3-6 months after treatment. I recommend adding RF treatments (Venus Legacy, Exilis Ultra, Vanquish) along with shock/vibration therapy Cellutone/z wave and hyperbaric oxygen and compression in order to decrease swelling and improve results. Best, Dr. Emer

Close follow up with your plastic surgeon is recommended.
