Questions about liposuction
The amount of fat removed in a liposuction procedure will depend on many factors such as surgical technique and individual variance in fatty excess. The amount can vary significantly between patients. Removing too much fat can result in skin dimpling and contour deformities along with laxity of the cutaneous tissues. If you did not achieve the result you were expecting, I would suggest you discuss this with your surgeon and determine what options are still possible.
