3 months after smart Lipo, deformities, swelling hard lumps. (photos)

I had smart lipo done 8/31. I still have hard lumps swelling, a tingling and sensitive stops on my mid section. I have seen my doctor several times and I am not happy with what he is saying it does not make sense. Also, he is cosmic surgeon... I reached out to a Plastic Surgeon, he told me to wait for 6 months to see if the deformities with go away. Please help! Photos are below. What advice would you recommend? Am I doing something wrong or not doing?

Smart Lipo

Healing is different, depends upon many factors, and can take a year or so.  In the interim, an exam and consultation with a plastic surgeon is recommended to discuss your options and expectations. Some may consider ultrasound massage, steroid injection, etc.

Liposuction After care includes RF treatments (Venus Legacy, Exilis Ultra) Cellutone/zwave, hyperbaric oxygen

It is still too soon for your final results, which may take 3-6 months after your procedure. It looks like you still have some swelling. I recommend adding lymphatic massage and hyperbaric oxygen along with your compression. However, based on the photos this needs surgical removal of skin to get a normal outcome.  Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
