Can the Same Area Be Lipo'd More Than Once?

Like, the midsection with a fat transfer for a BBL, and then a fat transfer somewhere else? Or would the lipo-areas have to be from different zones?

     Provided that the area has an adequate fat content, then the same area can be liposuctioned again.  Find the plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of liposuction procedures each year.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Thank you for your question. It depends on how much fat you have to harvest but you can transfer your fat to other areas. It would be best to get an evaluation with a board certified plastic surgeon with expertise in fat transfer for all of your options. I hope this helps.

Repeat liposuction?

Certainly you can liposuction the same area again, but it is frequently more difficult (at least for the surgeon) due to scar tissue from the first procedure.

Revision liposuction can be performed to improve the appearance of a previously treated area.  Good luck.

Lipo Same Area

It is possible to liposuction the same area more than one time. Often a small touch up if asymmetry is present may be useful.
