Bumps & Lumps--What's Normal After Smart Lipo: add Venus Legacy, Cellutone
It is still too early for your final results and this can still be swelling, which can last up to 6 months. I do 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 and improve results. It looks like you were more of a liposuction with skin removal candidate and you should see a revision specialist. Best, Dr. Emer
Uneven skin 6 weeks after smart lipo
Go for massages frequently, wear your compression garment around the clock and consider using a small insert pad over the lower abdomen. Those are the common steps to minimize wrinkled skin. At 6 weeks, healing is far from over.

Thank you for your pictures. I am sorry that you are worried. Please give this time. I agree that massage is helpful. Re-evaluate your results at 6 months if there are still concerns please seek evaluation from a board certified plastic surgeon
