Liposuction of legs disappointing

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
  • I am sorry your result from liposuction is disappointing.
  • Without photos, it is not possible to advise youi.
  • In general, where too much fat is removed, a fat transfer is needed.
  • When excess fat remains, additional lipouction is needed.
  • If the skin is loose, skin needs to be removed.
  • If possible, I suggest you consult a plastic surgeon to see what treatments(s) will help you -
  • The expertise of the surgeon will be more important that the machine that is used.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Liposuction, caves and depressions, skin folds, secondary surgery, revision surgery

Thank you for your query. Sorry to know that your surgery did not turn out the way it should have. There are three issues to be addressed here. The fat collections that cause skin elevations will need a repeat liposuction, Areas that are depressed or cave like may need some fat injection as decided by the surgeon. Lastly I am not sure whether you have some skin excess as well on your medial thighs and if that is the case you may need a thigh lift: all this can be decide only by surgeon you choose after examining you.Best wishes,Dr Alexander +

I did liposuction on hips and both medial thighs

Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your outcome after liposuction.  I would recommend seeing an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon for an in-person evaluation of your irregularities.  You may be a candidate for revision liposuction or a combination of liposuction with fat grafting to help improve your contour.  Best wishes

VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring with Fat Grafting -- REVISION HI DEF LIPOSUCTION

I suggest seeing a vaser 4d contouring expert and seeing if a revision can be performed, if fat grafting is needed etc.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Unevenness common

In my opinion, there isn't much to choose in terms of potential outcomes between the different types of liposuction. Certainly, some are easier for the surgeon but the outcomes are similar. Post operative corrections of contour defect are common so ask your first surgeon what they think about the result. In my practice we use water assisted suction for ease of use and safety as the amount of fluid required is generally less but that just my personal preference. Hope that helps.Adam Goodwin

Second attempt at liposuction

it is difficult to answer because many of the names in the question are possibly autocorrected. Usually for a secondary liposuction case I recommend ultrasonic liposuction with the VASER. (This may have been what was used already).  Even if so, I would recommend again.
