Hi! Thank you for providing photos. I would suggest trying CoolSculpting to help improve symmety. This technology is noninvasive and delivers very good results. Best of luck to you!

New noninvasive techniques may be more suitable to fix any unevenness after laser lipolysis for liposuction.  We employ devices like SculpSure and CoolSculpting to help even out lumps after liposuction.

Contour irregularity following liposuction

Thanks for your question. This is one of the frustrating things for patients and surgeons about liposuction of any type. Waviness to the tissues can occur when even the best possible techniques are utilized. You appear to have had a nice result overall, but I see what you are talking about. Yes, you can add fat back to the areas of depression, but I find that leads to more contour problems, sort of like, "chasing your tail." You might try some skin tightening treatments such as laser, and the last resort is a true tummy tuck which can help, but is a bigger recovery. I hope that helps.

Liposhifting might be the answer to your lipo dents

I use a technique of internal fat transfer to fill post-lipo indentations in a variety of sites. It can be combined with standard fat injections and is quite effective even for larger indentations. Check out the video link where I demonstrate the technique on the buttocks.
