Lumps in neck

If you had a neck lift and liposuction as well, it may take some more time to resolve.  If it does not, you may need your surgeon to perform a revision.

Lumps after Liposuction

Lumps that appear after Liposuction should improve with time.  I would recommend giving it a little more time to get better on its own but if not a touch up from your surgeon may be needed.

Lumpy neck after liposuction

There are many potentially different explanations for the lumps you are describing. They could be due to blood, fat, scar tissue, etc. At five months you should have a general impression if they have improved over the preceding month. If they are improving , it is likely that you will continue to experinence ongoing softening and diminution in the "lumpiness". If, however, they have been relativley stable,it is unlikely that you will see significant resolution. Scar massage, aspiration or injection are potential interventions that may improve the lumpiness but this should be discussed with your surgeon.

At 5 months time most of the swelling should be gone.  Things may still change and improve in the comings months, it really depends on how big of lumps you are talking about.  I would consult again with your plastic surgeon to see what he or she says.

Good luck.

Lumps after neck lift and liposuction

At five months, it is doubtful that any lumps will completely go away but they may improve slowly over a few more months. See your surgeon to evaluate a secondary procedure being done to improve your condition.
