Smoothing Irregularities with Coolsculpting/Vanquish, Exilis Ultra, Venus Legacy, VASER, ThermiRF, ultrasound
I'm not sure when you had your procedure and this is difficult to answer without pictures. There are options for skin tightening after liposuction. I recommend coolsculpting/vanquish for further fat removal, exilis/venus legacy for skin tightening, cellutone/z wave to make the skin smooth, remove scar tissue, and improve the skin's appearance. However, it may be that you are a candidate for a revision. VASER liposuction in combination with ThermiRF, ultrasound and fat grafting would give great results for skin tightening, fat removal and contour. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Predicting liposuction results
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- You would need an examination to know how your skin is likely to respond to liposuction.
- The outer thigh skin usually does not get loose. Dimpling can occur but isn't common.
- The inner thighs can loosen and sag, if too much fat is removed.

Thank you for your question. Anytime liposuction is performed there is a risk of loose skin after you have healed. Certain areas on your body, the skin does retract better than others. Follow up with your surgeon to further discuss your concerns.
