Why does liposuction usually leave the abdomen dark/disfigured?
Doctor Answers 4
Bruising after lipocontouring is expected during the immediate post-surgical period.
Dark skin after abdominal liposuction
- A thoughtful question -
- Liposuction of the tummy removes fat including around the belly button, so it can lose some of its support, making it flatter.
- Many women have BBL are women of color - liposuction vibration can stimulate the color cells in the overlying skin, making it darken.
- 100% shea or cocoa butter can help to lighten it afterwards.
- 4% hydroquinone applied to the skn 2 x day x 1 month in advance can help to prevent this or make it easier to treat afterwards.
