Revisional liposuction for post-liposuction irregularities
We now know that it is not the technology that produces a superior result, it is the surgeon.
Some of the very worst results I have ever seen from liposuction have been with laser liposuction techniques. Burns, irregularities, skin that feels like wood. Proponents of the 'new superior technology' were quick to tout its superiority, long before any studies were published or combined experience was available. The same people who were touting laser liposuction are now touting the newest 'latest and greatest'.
While microliposuction and fat injection may help, I have found that tightening by some form of tummy tuck along with microliposuction gives the best results in a case with post-liposuction subcutaneous irregularities, especially those that are superficial.
The technology is only as good as the surgeon.
Top treatments for liposuction revision
I would suggest our Hidef Liposuction Revision Protocol which includes liposuction, lipocavitation, Liposonix, stretch mark treatments, Brazilian Cellulite Treatment, endermologie, lymphatic therapy, Ultherapy, and fat grafting with fibrous release.
Irregularities After Liposuction
Seek someone who is frequent at treating revisions. It is not uncommon to see some lumps and bumps after surgery, and this typically can be fixed with either addtional liposuction or a Liposonix treatment to the areas surrounding. Fat grafting may also be required. Please see a dermatologic surgeon or plastic surgeon who can give you a full cosmetic evaluation, someone you trust and who is an expert in these treatments. I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.
Can tickle lipo fix some lumps left over from regular liposuction?
I would find an expert at liposuction to determine if a revision would be appropriate. I would not focus on the technique.
