Sometimes you may see a defect or a visible depression in an area where liposuction was done. This may represent over-resection of tissue with the liposuction. While this can happen in any surgeon's hands, in my opinion, this is one more reason to make sure of your liposuction surgeon's training and credentials. I suggest having a surgeon who is board certified in plastic surgery and in asps.

I think you mean what is the effect of liposuction. Liposuction is the removal of subcutaneous fat through suction cannulas. It permanently removes a portion of the fat between the skin and muscle. The effect of liposuction is to remove a small amount fat between under the skin to sculpt the body.

Liposuction surgery carries risks of over resection; if this occurs patients may see or feel skin contour irregularities/defects and an overall unsatisfactory aesthetic result. Care must be taken during his procedures to avoid these types of complications.

Liposuction is real surgery and carries a small risk of complications. Risks of surgery include bleeding and bruising, infection, multiple small scars, fluid collections, asymmetry, contour irregularities, and blood clots. Risks are often dependent on your current medical condition. Please discuss with your board certified plastic surgeon. http://www.dassmd.com/liposuction/index.html.
