VASER liposuction expectation
Thank you for your question and photos. Although you show us limited views, I believe you have acceptable results at this point. You will continue to improve over the next 4-5 months, so it is difficult to say if you will need further treatments. Your lower abdominal skin is very thin and inelastic, so you will have some loose skin. This is not a failure of the procedure. Unfortunately, you had abdomen and flanks done only, which detracts from being a great result. I always include the bra rolls on the back, hip rolls, and lower back fat pad above the buttocks. Lately, I also include the arms, since it looks disharmonious to have a slim body with fat arms. Of course this depends on what you discussed with your surgeon preop including the finacial arrangement. Be patient, I believe your results will get better with time. The key is, not to put on weight. Good luck.
