Post Liposuction Irregularities, Swelling -- Try Massage, Velashape or Venus Legacy With Your Compression
It appears you were more of a candidate of liposuction with skin removal. You need a formal evaluation to ensure no hematoma or seroma, but in the mean time massage, compression, RF treatments should help. Best, Dr. Emer.
Hi, thank you for your question and photo. Post liposuction, some hardness and lumps are normal. This lump you are experiencing can be as simple as swelling or fat necrosis. These lumps can last up to 6 months (sometimes even longer) after liposuction. At this time there is no need to panic, let your body continue to heal. Lymphatic massage therapy or Ultrasound therapy can help speed up this process if desired but is not necessary. Follow up with your physician once he is back in town. Best of luck to you.
It looks like you have loose skin as well. It may be fat, it may be loose skin, or it may be fluid or swelling. Best of luck.
Liposuction - lump at 10 days
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- It is common to notice irregularities of all kinds early after liposuction.
- You cannot judge your final result for months and months.
- What you are seeing may be loose skin, swelling, fibrous tissue - to name a few possibilities.
- Point it out to your surgeon on her/his return so s/he can follow your recovery along with you.
Always see a Board

don't worry about this because it probably represents a small area of bleeding or fat necorsis and will go away in time ie over several months.
