Will the discoloration on my skin go away after recovering from liposuction
Skin discoloration can also be caused by inflammation or irritation to the skin itself. This is rarely the case with simple liposuction.
If ultrasound-assisted liposuction or excessive laser treatments were done, then skin discoloration can happen.
Serious scarring to skin, such as after open surgery, can take over a year to heal. This is not usually the case with liposuction other than the minor incisions made to remove the fat.
While your overall figure looks remarkable, the uneven areas below your breasts is of some concern.
Responding to limited information and concerns online on RealSelf makes it difficult to give precise explanations or recommendations. In general, no final conclusions should be made nor should revisions be made before six months after initial procedures.
Please follow up with your surgeon to address your concerns. Not until healing has completed can you make final assessments.
In the end, I hope you will be pleased with the results. I anticipate, overall, things should just get better with time.
Best of luck,
Mats Hagstrom, M.D.
