VASER 4D HI DEF abdomen liposuction post-operative treatment lumps and bumps revision liposuction VASER scar tissue treatment
Hi Aprilshowers2000, Thank you for your question regarding lumps and bumps 5 months after VASER 4D HI DEF abdomen. I would give yourself another 2 months. The lumps and bumps are probably scar tissue, not edema or swelling. At this point, I do not think Z-wave or lymphatic massage will help. Rather, I would suggest deep tissue massage to break underlying scar tissue. I would continue deep tissue massage three times a week for six weeks. Post-VASER abdominal wall scar tissue may last for up to one year. The amount of scar tissue depends on the aggressiveness of your plastic surgeon, amount of fat removed, and amount of thermal energy used by the VASER. All these contribute to the creation of scar tissue. If in two months after deep tissue massage your results are unchanged, please revisit with your plastic surgeon. You may need VASER liposuction revision to remove or break-up scar tissue. If you have any questions regarding VASER liposuction, please call my office at (310) 859-7770. Sincerely, Dr. J. T. Katzen.

At 5 months most of the swelling has resolved. This is probably where you are going to end up. I would meet with my surgeon and go over my before/after photos and discuss my expectations.
Vaser High Definition Liposuction
Vaser liposuction can take up to 1 year to settle. I have seen these lumps get better at about the 1 year after surgery. Although some of the other doctors are relaying this is close to your final result, I would not agree. Some of the lumpiness may be scarring and it can get better for massage. I would suggest you do circular massage for 3 minutes 3 times a day for 3 weeks and then assess if it is getting better before you consider revision surgery. It is to early to consider more surgery.

these are probably your final results. It looks like you need an expert for a formal evaluation in hi def VASER revision or non invasive treatments such as vanquish, coolsculpting/sculpsure, exilis/venus legacy. z wave and cellutone treatments would be a good first option. Best, Dr. Emer
