Liposuction marks from the marking pen
You should check with your surgeon if they have a recommendation, because if they use this product they must have thought about its ramifications and questions such as yours. Most surgical markers are worn off by the time the liposuction is almost finished. Some wipe away with rubbing alcohol, but if a differnet marker were used than normal it might not come off until the stratum corneum, top layer of skin, flaked away naturally. I have noted that a blue marking pen comes vaporizes with the use of V-beam laser, but this would not be a practial approach and without knowing what ink was used on you, no one could guarantee you wouldn't get a bad reaction.
