Does liposuction surgery cause indentations or ripples in the skin? Well, ideally it should not. Ideally it should be a perfectly smooth contour with every liposuction surgery. And this, quite honestly, has to do with the skills and technique of the individual surgeon itself. It doesn't just have to do with the patient. You have to have a lot of finesse and artistry in terms of how you go about doing a liposuction surgery. It is a contouring and sculpting procedure. It is not just about removing the fat itself. But a lot of it has to do with how the surgeon is dealing with the skin.

I think one of the main reasons why I am so good in terms of doing this is that I'm a dermatological surgeon who understands the skin and how the skin tends to respond. And I have a lot of respect for the skin. You do not want to disrespect the skin from underneath. You do not want to poke the skin, you do not want to jab the skin, grab the skin, tent the skin. You want to make sure you're completely smooth in terms of how you're dealing with that skin, so you get a complete, even pullback of the skin itself. If the skin is poor in terms of elasticity, you want to be more conservative in terms of how you're removing the fat. If the skin has greater elasticity, you can choose to be a little more aggressive in those areas. So it's again, how you're dealing with the skin that causes either a perfectly smooth result or can cause irregularities and indentations.
