Lipo to the thighs
Liposuction - is my surgeon trying to get more money out of me?
- After liiposuction, you will swell -
- It will take time to see your final result.
- Your surgeon was right to not over-treat - more can always be done if needed.
- That said, at your height and weight 200 ccs from each thigh could be perfect.
- If he needs to do a revision, ask what the cost will be - a revision usually can be done in the office at a much reduced cost.
Insufficient result with possible need for a vision
It's not unusual for plastic surgery ask patients to pay for any associated facility or anesthesia fee that may be associated with a touchup or revision procedure.
Without an examination or properly lined up before and after pictures it's hard to get an accurate assessment if I revision or having more fat removed as indicated.
Taking out too much fat can and has permanently disfigured people.
This is often irreparable when it's the case.
There is an anatomic challenging area just above the widest part of your outer thighs.
If this area is aggressively treated with liposuction patients can get a hip dip.
Based on your pictures my best guess is the width of your outer thighs has a lot to do with your musculoskeletal structure and not so much with fat distribution.
Your after picture is easier to interpret because of the angle of the picture was taken at.
I suggest you follow up with your plastic surgeon and ask what his or her policy is on rivage in surgery in regards to finances.
If you want to second opinion you should probably do so with an in person consultation.
Skin compromise is very real when too much fat is removed.
Bad outcomes from liposuction such as removing too much fat is also difficult and often it not possible to correct.
