hello porra_ppk  

. Patient’s scars will mature following surgery; they may be red or raised for the first few months, but after 6–12 months they will soften, lighten, and become less noticeable. You should visit or contact your PS about this concern. #skin #post-op

It's still very soon after your procedure. There is risk with any type of liposuction for skin color changes or irregularities.  I recommend consulting with your doctor Ultrasound or RF treatments may be helpful. Start lymphatic massage to improve.  See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
