Lump post body jet liopsuction
firstly it looks like given a bit more time you are going to get a great result! The lump
may well be a collection of blood (a haematoma) in which case it should resolve over the next 4 weeks or so and you can speed this up with some gentle massage. As you say there is a buckle in your garment directly over the area it could be related to this and be the result of tissue oedema (which again will resolve given time and will be helped by massage). At 8 days following surgery it is still very early and I wouldn't worry about it too much. If it is still there in 5 weeks I would go and see your surgeon. I hope this helps
Make sure that the garment you are wearing is not adding to the formation of this. I am sure this will settle but you may need some advice on massage. Keep in touch with your PS.
Swollen flanks post-liposuction
Yes, you will experience lumps in areas post liposuction, this is not abnormal. The best post recovery treatments I recommend are Lymphatic Massage Therapy, Hyperbaric Chamber, IV Therapy. If the lump still exists 8-12 weeks post op I recommend following up with your treating surgeon. Best, Dr. Berger
