Induration at and around the incision is normal following any surgery where large amounts of skin are removed and usually resolves on its own in a few months. The method of suturing, skin type, skin thickness, associated surrounding fat and swelling all may affect how long it takes. Gentle massage is helpful and the key is to do it consistently. Your PS may also have non-invasive devices which use energy such as lasers, ultrasound or radio frequency to help it progress a bit more quickly. The good news is that it almost always resolves on its own and has no direct effect on the outcome. Good luck.
