The goal of liposuction is localized fat reduction, improved contour, and limited scarring. With newer technologies and smaller cannulas the scars are a distant third in importance. The scars should be small in number and size and whenever possible hidden in a bikini or underclothing. However, if a patients' body calls for a higher scar for improved cross-treatment and a smoother result, I would not hesitate to do so. CONTOUR is most important.
