The goal of liposuction is smoother, slimmer lines that bring out the best in your figure by eliminating isolated problem spots.* By choosing a highly qualified and experienced liposuction surgeon, you can limit your chances of running into these 3 cosmetic concerns after lipo:
Liposuction is really a two-part surgery, because the fatty deposits must first be broken apart prior to removal with gentle suction. If inconsistent effort is used to separate fat cells or a too-aggressive approach is taken during removal, low spots and visible dimples may be left behind.
After lipo, isolated pockets of fat should be smoothed away for a more streamlined shape.* This should be apparent not only in the target area itself but is also evidenced by a subtle transition to adjacent areas of the body.* Irregularity in contouring can cause this border to appear more noticeable than it should.
Skin elasticity is an important element in achieving optimum body contouring results.* Performing lipo on patients who already have looser skin can make any visible laxity appear more pronounced after surgery. Like dimpling and irregular contours, this is the opposite of what we want liposuction to achieve.
Ensuring Beautiful Results
So how can you avoid these mistakes? A proper patient evaluation will ensure you’re a good candidate, and a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in liposuction is most likely to deliver a quality outcome.*
