How long should I wait before I can get another Liposuction on the same area to fix it? I read that some people see results after just 2 or three weeks. Idon't think that my surgeon took enough or any fat of my lower abs. I did have a seroma last week and my surgeon removed some of it, but I still see no difference.
Second Liposuction Treatment on Same Area?
Doctor Answers (3)
Wait at least 4 months before you have revision liposuction.
1) What I would do right away for someone with your story in our Manhattan practice, is get a sonogram of your abdomen. That way you can tell if there other seromas that need to be aspirated. A seroma that is not removed becomes a permanent lump.
2) If there are no seromas, then I would send you for lymphatic drainage massage, which can really improve smoothness and contour.
3) You will know the final result in 4 months. By that time, the swelling is gone, and all the fat atrophy has taken place. After 4 months, you can have a revision if you don't like the result. As with all cosmetic surgery, good technique is everything.
Repeat liposuction in same area
Wait at least 3-6 months before second Liposuction on same area
A seroma with liposuction is unusual and may affect your outcome. If more liposuction will be helpful (and this is not always,) I would wait 3-6 months. What does your doctor say?
