Laser Liposuction Complication
As a result of the "internal burn" and scarring, it can cause depressions, contractions, and irregularities.
With massage and time, the problem may get a little better but an abdominoplasty would help immensely. You should wait 6 months to one year postoperatively before proceeding with an abdominoplasty. Hope this helps.

Applying the wrong procedure
When liposuction is poorly performed or done on patients who are poor candidates, devastating disfigurements can result.
You appear to have enough skin to have a tummy tuck done.
The question of whether that will repair the damage is another concern.
At this point, you should be in the hands of an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to help you out.
Best of luck,

What to do
Unhappy with abdomen after laser liposuction [PHOTO]
I think you have got adhesions which basically means that the skin is sticking to the muscle underneath. This can occur after liposuction particularly if the fat is not removed completely evenly.
I think this is a difficult problem to treat and may require fat transfer and possibly freeing up of the skin.
It is important to see a very experienced surgeon who has treated similar cases.
Once again I’m sorry you are not happy with the results of your surgery. I hope you do find a surgeon who can sort the problems out for you.
