Are these hard lumps permanent after revision Liposuction? (photos)

I had revision liposuction 4 weeks ago and have 3 hard marble-like lumps on my lower abdomen. I have been religious with my garments and topi foam and I'm really worried about the appearance of my stomach and am worried this will be permanent. My doctor says he didn't lipo that part of my stomach and that it looks like scar tissue from the cannula. Please advise me what I can do!

Another attempt at liposuction revision may be in order

I appreciate your question.

I would recommend Lymphatic Drainage massages at this time.  Please discuss with your surgeon so he/she can review their post op protocol with you.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!

I recommend making direct massages in the area. Often these irregularities after a lipo improve  with time but the massages will be decisive.

I suggest RF treatments and shock therapy with lymphatic massage at this time.  You may need kybella or steroid/5fu injections if not improved.  I hope you will not need another revision, please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
