Unevenness and Lumps on Tummy after Lipo. Any suggestions?

I had a tummy lipo about 2 years ago and my my skin plus contour is not smooth. There are lumps and unevenness everywhere. Is there way that this can be improved? I have tried working out to strengthen my core muscles but somehow it doesnt help.

Liposuction - uneven result

Thank you for asking about your uneven liposuction.

I am sorry your result is so disappointing. You need to be examined to get the best advice.Your skin looks quite loose - a skin only tummy tuck might be one option, a careful small cannula liposuction might be another but there are times after liposuction when too much fat has been removed and this can be difficult to improve.

Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

I suggest a revision procedure using VASER 4D hi def lipo plus RF treatments for improvement or try non invasive options like Sculpsure, Vanquish/Cellutone, exilis/Venus Legacy.  See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
