I am not new to these boards but I normally post in the TT forum but I have a question I think is best anwsered here. I had large volume liposuction only there are areas that are extremely HARD and sensitve to the touch. Is this normal? Is it swelling or scar tissue? Any suggestions on how to soft these areas? Thanks in advance.
HI there, I had very hard lumps under the skin that were very painful to touch. I have been having a bath every night to help with swelling and I try to massage these areas gently in the bath with my fingers. It has helped a little. I also get numb spots here and there and had a roping effect across my tummy at one stage. If you read the lipo recovery guide on the lipo index page, it wil give you an idea of what to expect
I too did the gentle massage to the hard lumps/bumps ropey areas while in the shower using my body wash, and then when applying lotion after shower, just very gentle at first using my finger tips, then once able to apply a bit more pressure I did so... Make sure all incision sites are completely closed before applying lotion over them...

Swelling can be hard , soft , squishy, moves around, roping, lumps
I had it all....
When you can stand it self massage works well too. I was too sore to do that for months.
I used a lot of Arnica Gel and it worked wonders on my bruising. After my incisions were totally healed I slathered it on all the lipo areas and other areas in the way...LOLOL I used it off and on for 4-5months
I used Emu oil also and I know it promotes healing and prevent scar tissue at a cellular level...very good stuff
