Don’t Live with Disappointments
This patient is a 49 year old, healthy female, who came to me three years following liposuction of her thighs, performed by a nearby plastic surgeon. Despite a long wait and reassurance by the operating surgeon, she was left with these scarred, irregularly surfaced thighs. The dimpling of the skin was so severe that she could not wear skirts or shorts, comfortably. After a complete workup in the office, I was able to perform Laser correction of the scarring and a thigh lift, removing the excess skin and smoothing the surface. The surgery was challenging, because of the scars that I encountered during the surgery, but careful Laser release resulted in a near perfect correction of her problem, as you can see in her photos.
Liposuction is a safe, predictable procedure
In nearly 25 years of practice, I have not ever seen this patient’s scarring resultant to liposuction. The correction was very successful, but the problem is completely avoidable with careful, primary attention to technique and appropriate selection of instrumentation. All surgery is meticulously planned to prevent untoward outcomes with strict attention to detail and post-operative care. However, if any results are unsatisfactory, there are modalities to correct these problems.
