I've read the generic advice about treating the contour irregularity that can occur 2ish weeks post-lipo: massage, compression, activity. But I've also read warnings about being too aggressive with any of these. I'm confused about what specifically I should be doing for it. Massage: Light/lymphatic or deep? How much/often? Compression: How many hrs/day, & when (at night vs exercising)? Activity: How much exercise is ideal - before it actually promotes more swelling & lumps? Thank you!

2 weeks after surgery its normal to have irregularities, after 3 weeks you can start messaging the areas pretty aggresive. Continue to use your compression garment for at least 2 months after surgery. Your sweeling will last up 6 months. Please continue to see your PS that did the procedure for your after care.
