When is the lumps and bumps goes away? (photos)
Doctor Answers 5
Thank you for your question and photograph.
It is important to consult with your surgeon about any questions or concerns you may have so they can give you a physical examination. The lumpiness/swelling in the area is common after SmartLipo and will begin resolving over the next 3 months. I usually have my patient’s wear their compression garments with topifoam and daily light massaging to break it up and make the area smoother and softer. You can also take 1 capsule of Resveratrol a day to assist in recovery. Best of luck in your recovery.

It is still early and you need continued compression as well as aggressive daily massage. Weight loss and exercise will also help. Give it another month and follow up with your surgeon.
