How do I fix this liposuction disaster on thighs? (Photos)

The Dr said that he would lipo the top layer fat because it contracts faster. I did not have celllulite issues. Wanted my thigh circumference to be reduced. He said that he injected fat banana roll to address a smart lipo issue. But now my entire leg has horizontal lines/dimples and the side of the thighs have "ripples". How do I fix this as I cannot wear shorts anymore :( Even my grandma has better legs than me!

Smoothing Out The Ripples with VASER, ThermiRF, ultrasound, Venus Legacy, Cellutone, Cellfina

I suggest a consultation with a 4D HI DEFINITION contouring specialist about a revision which can help with fat removal and contouring. VASER with ThermiRF/ultrasound and fat grafting along with Cellfina, Sculptra and body treatments like Venus Legacy/Exilis Ultra, Cellutone/Zwave will help smooth out the ripples and define the thighs. However, this likely needs surgical repair with fat grafting. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Restoring harmony to a liposuction problem

We need to restore harmony to this area of the body. I would use our Hidef Liposuction revision technique that uses lasers, lipocavitation, liposculpture, VASER, fibrous release, fat grafting, exilis and liposonix.
