hello danielle GA 

Numbness around suction area will improve a few weeks after the procedure; lumpiness will also decrease with time although massaging can quicken the softening. #lumps #hardness

Having hard bumps after liposuction is normal it sounds like scar tissue. In our practice we tell our patients to message the area's to help break down that scar tissue. feeling tingling is normal taking an anti histamine should help with that. Make sure you follow up with your surgeon.

Some firmness is normal after liposuction. If you are very concerned, I recommend seeing your surgeon.
