Liposuction doesn’t always produce beautiful results, especially inexperienced practitioners perform the procedures, when you make your decision based on the best price, or when short-cut gimmick techniques are used.
Problems after liposuction that lead to revisional procedures are usually very difficult to fix, and often require meticulous techniques like fat transfer, fat grafting, fat shifting, and full revision liposuction. Revision liposuction procedures can be long in duration and quite costly depending on the nature of the problem, so if you are having liposuction for the first time, or if you know someone who is, make sure that you are not deciding on a surgeon based on the price alone. Fixing a bad result can often cost 3-4 times the price you may have paid for bargain lipo, and you will still not likely obtain a result that is as good as it could have been the first time around if you were in more experienced hands.
The most common reasons for having revision liposuction surgery are usually related to soft tissue contour deformities like:
- Irregular bulges of fat.
- Deep lines or grooves.
- Hard lumps or scar tissue.
- Poorly healed or noticeable scars.
- Sagging skin.
- Not enough volume removed.
- A lack of “sculpting”.
