Irregularities after revision liposuction
Unsuccessful Revision Liposuction
There is clearly a residual depression, possibly near a folding point in your skin. There also appears to be a lot of residual tissue that could have been taken. If you are up to it, a revision surgery done by a seasoned expert can improve your result. Go on a few consults and look at photos.
My bias is towards non-high energy based systems like Vaser, lasers, radiofrequency emitters. They add a layer of complication, unpredictability, and potentially more complications.
Best of luck!

I would recommend our Hidef Liposuction Revision techniques which combine liposuction, lipo cavitation, Liposonix, and skin tightening. You may also need a fibrous release of scar tissue.

Uneven contours after liposuction
It's hard to tell from just pictures.
Examination is really needed to make an accurate assessment.
Based on your first picture you appear to have some skin laxity.
Patients who are aggressively treated with liposuction and who also have skin laxity are more prone to contour irregularities.
The area on your second picture looks like it's been excessively treated.
I suggest you first following up with your plastic surgeon to ask him or her what their thoughts are.
after that you should consider getting a few second opinions.
