Hard lumps under the skin
What you describe is most likely not related to swell a lift out.
It's more likely inflammation and early scarred tissue that will settle down with time.
What you describe is not uncommon early after liposuction.
Some plastic surgeons may recommend massage.
In my experience time will usually resolve these though neither massage or time will not resolve unevenly performed liposuction

Knowing What's Normal After Liposcution--Add Venus Legacy, Cellutone to your aftercare
This is hard to answer without an exam. It is normal to experience swelling and discomfort after your procedure. I do recommend adding lymphatic massage, RF treatments externally like venus legacy, exilis ultra, Vanquish, shock/vibration therapy like Cellutone/z wave, hyperbaric oxygen and compression in order to decrease swelling and improve results. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Thanks for your inquiry, without an exam it is hard to advise, but in general the lumps are small amounts of fluid, blood and dissolving fat. Please ask your surgeon when massage is appropriate. Good Luck.
Liposuction - painful lumps after 2 weeks
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.'
- Actually, these are not lymph nodes but inflamed tissue where the liposuction was done.
- They tend to be more common over bone - eg the ribs and back.
- If they don't hurt, they will go away and need no treatment.
- Very low dose steroid injections will help those that are painful - so check with your surgeon about this
