Will the lumps after my liposuction resolve on their own?

Possibly: Lumps after lipo can be due to swelling, bruising (hematomas), fluid collections (seromas) or from contour irregularities (fat missed or too much fat removed). Some will resolve on their own over the 3-6 months after your procedure, some will not, some will improve with massage or ultrasound treatments. See your doctor to discuss possible causes and treatments. Read more

What causes lumpiness after chin liposuction? I've read some forum comments about people having lumps in their neck after chin liposuction. Is that normal? Does it go away? .

Chin liposuction: Submental liposuction (or microliposculpture) can improve the look of a double chin, make the angle between your chin and neck more attractive, and define your jawline. One risk is irregularity of the resultant contour, which can look or feel lumpy. This often goes away in several months. If it persists, revision may be necessary. Read more

After liposuction is done, do they have to sew up the loose skin?

After liposuction is done, do they have to sew up the loose skin?

Liposuction results: Typically liposuction is performed in areas where the surgeon expects the skin will have good elasticity and retract without the need for excising the loose skin. There are exceptions, where the physician may plan to perform liposuction followed by skin excision in a separate surgery in an area where a patient may have loose skin from weight loss, but still a significant amount of excess fat.

I have stretch marks and a bad skin quality, can I opt for vaser liposuction?

I have stretch marks and a bad skin quality, can I opt for vaser liposuction?

Depends: Liposuction will not substantially tighten loose or sagging skin. If the areas of concern are where the tone is adequate, lipo might work. Fractional laser resurfacing might help to reduce the appearance of some stretch marks. Evaluation by a qualified plastic surgeon would be your best bet. Read more

If I had liposuction done 2years ago and I have, I think scare tissue under the skin could I still get a 6 pack?

If I had liposuction done 2years ago and I have, I think scare tissue under the skin could I still get a 6 pack?

Yes: Liposuction removes fat from between your skin and muscles, which should make it easier to appreciate your six pack. Scar tissue should not affect your ability to see the six pack. If you're having difficulty obtaining the definition you desire, you might want to look into 4D Hi-Def Lipo: http://www. Omahacosmeticsurgery.

Liposuction question: estimated time of recovery before going back to lifting heavy weights (200 lb+) in the gym? Skin removal question: same as above

Liposuction question: estimated time of recovery before going back to lifting heavy weights (200 lb+) in the gym? Skin removal question: same as above

Be Good To Yourself: 6-8 weeks 6-8 weeks But if I could guess what you'll do is try and push it sooner than that. And you might get away with it if you are very very careful and start real real easy, like legs only for a while. The concern is tissue adhesion and avoiding swelling, which slows healing. Too much exercise puts too much strain on the healing blood vessels. Also, any drugs that do that, like smoking or uppers Read more

Should I get a neck lift along with my chin liposuction? I have a double chin, so i'd like to get chin liposuction. I feel like my skin is also pretty loose, so I'm wondering if i'll also need a chin lift to get good results..

Neck lift: Liposuction of the neck and chin area is a great procedure for patients that want more definition and just have excess fat. However, loose skin is not treated by liposuction, and would be better treated by a neck lift. You need a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. Http://www. Dassmd.

Can liposuction get rid of the pendulous skin under my arms? I want to get rid of the wobbly fat and skin under my arms. Can liposuction help with this? How often do patients need to have the skin removed as well as the fat?

No.: No, generally arm lifting surgery is necessary to remove “pendulous skin" under the arms. Liposuction surgery alone will likely leave you with loose/irregular/unattractive skin. Best to seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience helping patients in this area. Best wishes. Read more
