Is it possible to correct a cannula burn made on my left cheek caused by face liposuction?

Burn Mark/Face/After Lipo/Cannula--Lasers, Silicone based scar gels with growth factors, microneedling/PRP
It's difficult to say without a picture. A combination treatment that includes laser and micro needling/PRP may also be beneficial, but it may require a scar revision. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Facial liposuction - burn from cannula
Thank you for asking about your facial liposuction.
I am sorry this happened. One would have to see the burn and know what caused it - e.g. friction, laser. Usually burns must heal and wait six months before knowing if revision is needed - but this is only a guess. Please see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an evaluation.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Scar after Liposuction
It is difficult to say without a photo, but most scars can be improved. You are looking for scar revision. I recommend you consult with a board certified Plastic Surgeon. Best of luck.

Thank you for you question. A photo would be helpful. Liposuction is not performed on the face. liposuction does not cause burns. A wound will heal and scar revision may be necessary after waiting a few months. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Best wishes.
