Thank you for sharing your question and photographs.  I see your area of concern and if your skin was able to retract well after your initial liposuction, careful removal of the additional fat within the lump should allow for the same.  Ultimately the best decision is based on an in-person examination of your skin tissues so be sure to ask your surgeon for their professional opinion.  Hope this helps.

Liposuction - if fat removed, will the skin sag?

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.

  • Based on a photo, one can't say -
  • If the skin is loose after your first liposuction, then it will be looser still.
  • But if it shrank down well then, it should be ok now.
  • It is best to ask your own surgeon - she is the one who can examine you.
