Laser Liposuction

This is common and we treat all of our patients with Vshape and Smoothshapes for this.  This will help to smooth out the areas until they resolve.  We rarely have patients go beyond 6 weeks with the fibrotic tissue.

Fibrosis after liposuction

Smart Lipo can induce thermal injury and the body can manifest a response by producing too much collagen. This can create scarring underneath the skin.  Massage, corticosteroid injections (which have risk), warm compresses, endermologie, external ultrasound, and possibly Velashape may help.

Marks after liposuction

At 5 weeks you are still a bit early in the recovery process. You have to give it more time to heal and soften. If concerned then see your surgeon.

Swelling after laser Lipo is non Unusual

From the photo you show, the back rolls and upper abdomen by nature have more fibrous tissue and that is why an energy source such as laser or ultrasound can help get more thorough fat remoal from these areas. Having siad that, this energy often applied to the fat and skin layers for tightening can produce more swelling or edema.

sometimes it can be firm. In this instance, you would need to do post operative treaments and or massaging to open veins and lymphatics for drainage. This problem should slowly resolve, but at one month after, can still be wuite visible.
