Although most people undergoing liposuction enjoy the benefits, there are a few others who have less than desirable results. If unrealistic cosmetic goals are out of the way, it could be due to some irregularity in the surgical operation of the fat.
Irregularity or waviness of the surface is a common problem faced by most people following their liposuction procedure. Although this is often associated with less experienced surgeon, there were a few cases of the same result even with highly skilled surgeons.
Since most doctors anticipate this condition, they create multiple tiny incisions in the area to be treated. Meanwhile, smaller cannulae are also used to penetrate the incision and into the body fat. Another technique used by most surgeons to avoid irregularity is cross suctioning. By superficial and deep suctioning, it reduces the possibility of feathered edges around the area of your body.
As soon as these irregularities show up, most patients are advised to not proceed with another procedure yet until after 6 to 12 months. For some patients, massage is enough to deal with it. However, there might come a point wherein surgical correction is needed. When this happens, surgeons will suction those areas and fill them in with fat grafts. For loose skin, it can be removed through excision.
Cellulite is another problem following liposuction, since it worsens in some cases. For this, ultrasonic liposuction is the recommended form of treatment. This type of liposuction procedure is also effective in removing fibrous fats that achieve a better result when compared to traditional liposuction techniques.
