Lumps After Liposuction -- Ultrashape, Vanquish, ThermiRF, Velashape/venus legacy, Kybella, Z wave
Hard mass of back
Liposuction - hard lump after 6 weeks
- Lumps can form - although most are largely gone by 6 weeks.
- Ask your surgeon what it is -
- Often it is scar tissue -
- At times a very weak injection of steroid will make them softer and smaller.
