Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic

I am Dr. Kakkar. I have gone through your query and I have understood it.

Immediately after lipo you will be swollen and bruised for the first few weeks, this eventually goes away, At 7 weeks, you have just completed the proliferative phase of wound healing and firmness and irregularities are not uncommon.

This is normal in all likelihood and will go away. You can massage them. Your doctor could try dilute steroid injections.

Pain killers would help relieve the discomfort.
