Will Fraxel Repair Work For Me?

I have an irregular small pocket of skin around the mouth where lumpy fat graphs were liposuctioned several years ago. Would Fraxel Repair tighten that area & give it a smooth, tighter appearance? I am a fair skinned Caucasian.

The answer to your questions lies in how deep the lines are. While fractional carbon dioxide laser treatments do tighten the skin, they are not miracle treatments. I would certainly speak with a facial plastic surgeon who actually performs the procedures to see if you are a good candidate.

Fraxel repair for Slight Skin Texture Lumps Where Fat Graphs Were Liposuctioned


Hi Droy,

I have used Fraxel repair in patients with minor skin irregularities from fat grafting with excellent results.  Please post photos or consult for a more accurate answer to your case.  Most importantly choose your Fraxel repair physician most carefully.  Good luck and be well.
