It's been almost 6 months since my liposuction and I have a small crease that won't go away! How do I get rid of it? (photos)

I've tried getting massages.. It wasn't always there just suddenly appeared and won't go away!

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
  • In your photo, the crease does not look like loose skin.
  • First, wait a full 9 months to see if more irregularities appear and to let tissues soften.
  • Then see your plastic surgeon about a fat transfer to fill out the indentation.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.  Best wishes. Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

Based on your photos, your result could be improved with radio frequency skin tightening, like Venus Freeze procedure. You could still get improvement with massage and time, but the RF treatments may help fast forward those results. Good luck!
