Hard and Bulging Muscles After Smart Lipo

I had Smart Lipo done 5 months ago. I have not seen the doctor, and they can't seem to let me see him. My stomach is still large and the muscles are hard and sticking out. I am very unhappy. What can be done about this?

It is difficult to see what you are trying to show in the photo.  Firmness several months after lipo may suggest a fluid collection or even fat necrosis.

I would definitely see the doctor that treated you or find another doctor and have this investigated.  Good luck.
