I had SmartLipo & VaserLipo on my abdomen & flanks 10 days ago. My surgeon said about 8 lbs fat, 11 lbs total with fluids was removed. Day 5 I developed extreme hardness in my abs. I used a heat massager, took antibiotics for chills & pharmaceutical Echinacea & Goldenseal. I immediately saw 50% reduction of the hard swollen tissue. Since then, it's about the same.
I'm still using the heat massager 3 hours per day. I'm feeling great but SCARED this hardness will never go away.
What can I do to reduce the hardness?? Do I need an ultrasound?
