What are these lumps on my legs after liposuction, and will they go away? (photos)

I just underwent my 2nd liposuction of the abs, flanks, and thighs. I am 2 weeks post-op and have noticed large, firm lumps on my upper inner thighs on both legs. I know I am very early in the healing process, but I did not have these lumps the first time around and want to have realistic expectations on how much they will heal.

The bumps and bruising will resolve. I would suggest our Hidef Liposuction Revision Protocol which includes fibrous release, lipocavitation, liposculpture, and multi-plane tissue sculpting with Exilis. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles

You would have to be evaluated in person. That can be swelling, fluid, or possibly retained fluid. Best of luck.
