Possible corrective procedure for bad lipo results to thighs? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 8
The skin is the complicated issue. Dimpled areas or scars from previous liposuction can be treated effectively. Find a provider in your area who has experience with Cellfina.
A combination of procedures would be best for you.
You are in the same situation as many of us women who had liposuction in our youth and now our loosening skin is showing some previously hidden dents. It looks like a combination of micro-blending liposuction with possible fat grafting would be a great start. If there are any true septal dimples, then these can be released with Cellfina. I have seen and treated any women with similar appearances and most revisions can be done in the office with careful thoughtful planning.

Correction of bad liposuction with CellfinaBased on your photos, IMO you may do better with a combination of procedures that include velashape 3, thermi smooth or similar. Cellfina is best for localized cellulite of buttocks and posterior thighs.

Cellfina is an FDA approved minimally invasive procedure that reduces the appearance of cellulite for at least two years on the buttocks and back of the thighs of women.
It works by releasing the internal bands that cause the cellulite dimpling and so we have not seen any fat atrophy. You should not see much of a difference with weight gain or loss but this also has not been studied.
Other areas of the body with dimpling, it is important to make sure it is truly cellulite before treatment.
It is common to have swelling bruising and firmness after the procedure. This can last for a few weeks.
Cellfina has shown 100% noticeable improvement and 96% satisfaction in all patients at 2 years.
Cellfina is designed to be a one time procedure. It can be used on women with all skin types but caution should be taken if theres a history of keloiding. It can also be combined with other treatments such as Thermi or Ulthera if skin tightening is needed.
We have done Sculpsure and Coolsculpting if fat reduction is wanted, but its best to wait 3 months to see the results before proceeding.
It can also be done at the same time as other procedures such as liposuction and BBL or as a stand alone procedure in the office.
Since Cellfina outcomes can be based on technique and experience, please see a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes body contouring to see if Cellfina or other treatments are available to meet your goals.
