Liposuction

The dimples on your back will stay after liposuction, I'm assuming you like the dimples if not there are treatments to fill them.

Dimples and back liposuction

  • If there is a lot of fat around the dimples, their appearance will be softened.
  • Otherwise the dimples stay.
    You can have them filled with fat or with off the shelf fillers.

The dimples on your back will typically not disappear after lipo of the lower back. If you don't like them or want them concealed, that can usually be accomplished with a little fat-grafting.  It would be your own personal preference.

  The dimples can be preserved if you want or lessened or filled with fat grafting.
