Tumscent liposuction: Is it Safe to Have a Touch-up?
Doctor Answers 3
Generally as safe as the first procedure
First off, liposuction is one of the safest procedures we do as plastic surgeons.
Because most touchups are fairly minor, they are not as extensive as the primary operation.
Often, when touchups need to be done, they are done in the office. If it requires treating all the areas, then the surgeon will generally use the same type of anesthesia that was used for the first surgery.
I do most of my liposuction with patients awake, but this is a personal preference.
Many plastic surgeons prefer general anesthesia.
Best of luck,
