Irregular result after liposuction

This is probably a visible 'track' left by a liposuction cannula (Tube).

How long ago did you have liposuction?

  • Within the past few weeks? The crease is probably mostly swelling and will subside in time, but time can be as long as six months. 
  • Six months or more in the past? The crease is probably permanent unless something is done. Treatment may be an injection to soften scar, an office-touch up or a small fat transfer

Best of luck.
