Are wrinkles normal after lipo?
Liposuction - wrinkling of skin afterwards
- If you just had surgery, this may be from swelling.
- Without before photos and knowing when surgery was done - and if it was done when a tummy tuck was needed - it hard to tell the cause.
- Your best resource is to ask your surgeon to explain the problem and what to do next.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Unfortunately, liposuction does not get rid of excess skin. This usually requires a tummy tuck or an abdominoplasty. It is hard to say without knowing the nature of the procedure you had or the pre-operative photos. Consultation with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is a great way to start.
