Revision Liposuction

Patients who have undergone liposuction but are unhappy with their results are becoming increasingly common. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Younai routinely corrects liposuction defects with his revision liposuction in Beverly Hills at his office. As a liposuction specialist, he is often referred the most challenging patients. Revision surgery is more difficult, and requires a higher level of skill than original surgical procedures. If you have irregularities and indentations in the texture of your skin, or if too little fat was removed and you have bulges in the wrong places, Dr. Younai can help.

Why does liposuction go wrong?

Liposuction surgery should only be performed by a board certified plastic surgeon with years of experience. This is one area of plastic surgery that is highly dependent on the skill and experience of the surgeon. Liposuction defects appear at the surgical sites as lumpy, depressed or indented areas that can also have skin color changes. Bulges appear where not enough fat was removed. The damage can be done at the superficial fatty layer or deeper, and can also result in scarring which puckers surface skin.

Fixing Liposuction Problems

Revision liposuction is not usually done earlier than 6 months after the original procedure to allow the body to completely adjust to the procedure. During the recovery period, it is not uncommon for the site to be uneven and swollen but usually this corrects over time.

Liposuction defects can be corrected using several advanced cosmetic methods. It may take more than one session to correct extensive damage. Depending on the location of your problem, you may need fat grafting to contour areas lacking fullness, micro liposuction to remove excess fat in a particular area or scar release surgery. Laser treatments may be used to even out skin tone and a skin tightening procedure will usually be done to finish the procedure.

Due to the delicate nature of liposuction revision surgery, special instruments and low power suction machines will be used by Dr. Younai to sculpt the area precisely. A light touch is necessary to ensure no further damage is done during your revision liposuction in Los Angeles.

Weight Related Liposuction Issues

During the initial consultation and examination, Dr. Younai will determine the cause of an incomplete liposuction procedure. Remember an incomplete procedure would indicate that excess fat was left at the time of the original procedure. If the culprit is post liposuction weight gain, it important for the patient to understand that it is possible to cause the original problem to reappear. While it is true that it is harder to gain weight after liposuction, there are always some fat cells left at the site which can increase in size if the patient is consuming too many calories.

Recovery

Every patient undergoing revision liposuction in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills will have a unique recovery profile. Generally patients will be asked to refrain from exercise or any strenuous activity from between 2 weeks and 2 months. There will be some swelling and bruising but patients should be able to return to work within a week. The specific recovery timetable will depend on the extent of the procedures and the overall health of the patient.
