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.
Will Fraxel Repair Work For Me?

Fraxel and Skin
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
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.
