Hardness and lumpiness after liposuction
Liposuction is one of the most famous cosmetic surgeries in the market today. This is a procedure wherein a cannula is inserted into the area that requires fat removal. The fat is then removed through tubing that is connected to a suction machine by using a back and forth motion.
Although highly proven and tested safe, you can’t avoid having bruises and swelling. This is normal and it just can’t be resolved within a day so you need to be very patient. You can’t expect to see great results within the first day after surgery. The progression of the symptoms usually takes six to nine months.
The bumpiness, hardness and lumpiness can be eliminated using the following methods:
- Performing a lymphatic massage can minimize swelling and at it can also help break up the hard and lumpy areas.
- You can wear a tighter girdle as recommended by your surgeon. This will help diminish the amount of lumpiness, bumpiness, inflammation and scar formation that might occur.
- If you think the symptoms are not progressing at all, Kenalog is a steroid that can be injected into specific affected regions.
While it’s completely understandable that you want to see results right away, you need to remind yourself that still; the best treatment for these symptoms is patience and discipline.
