How long after laser lipo can corrective surgery/touch ups be done?
1 year ago
I am 5 weeks post laser liposuction on my outer thighs and one side is larger than the other. I have seen my doctor and he has scheduled my correctivesurgery for July 12 which will be just over 3 moths post surgery. I am wondering if this will be too soon after? He has said that it is fine as the results of lipo will be final by then and it takes up to six months for the laser results and skin tightening to fully show. Can someone please tell me if this will be ok? Or should I wait until September?

The best thing in this situation is to be guided by your surgeon as he assessed you and performed your surgery and has tailored your treatment surgical plan.
Thank you for your question.
I specialize in Liposuction and Body Contouring procedures. I would recommend that you wait 6 months to 1 year before undergoing revision surgery.The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
