Liposuction Concern - Hard Swelling After Procedure

Patient : I GOT LIPOSUCTION A WEEK AGO YESTERDAY ON MY LOVE HANDLES AND BELLY. THE AREA IS NOW PURPLE AND STONE HARD. IS THE HARDNESS NORMAL?
Doctor :   As the area on which the liposuction was performed heals, scar tissue will develop. This may initially feel hard. Occasi onally, a collection of fluid may occur under skin, which may also feel hard. Depending on the size of the collection it may require surgical drainage. It is best to visit with your surgeon to have the area assessed.
