Scarring after smart lipo
This may represent a contraction of the seroma space or capsule or some residual fat or just a tight scar. Usually this will get better with massage and external ultrasound treatments or RF treatments, but massage also works well and is less expensive. Ultimately after about 6 months, if you still have a lump there it will need to be evaluated to see if a little revision liposuction is needed. This (I do this without the laser most of the time) can release scarred tissue and equalize the fat that is present giving you a smoother result. I would bring it to your doctor's attention though. They would have the best understanding about what was done and what should be done next.
Lumps After Liposuction--Add Venus Legacy, Vanquish, Cellutone
You can still have some swelling for a few more months after your procedure. I recommend adding 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, tighten and firm any irregularities. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
