Many people undergo liposuction in order to improve parts of their bodies that they have been unable to improve with diet or exercise. Unfortunately, sometimes the results are less than desirable leaving patients wondering how to fix bad liposuction. Though a bad result can be unsettling, there are ways to fix it.
One of the most common complaints are lumps and indentations after liposuction. If these do not improve, there are ways to fix it and the most common way is through a combination of fat grafts and further liposuction. You have fat harvested from another part of your body and put where the indentation is in order to smooth it out. Then, to fully refine it, further liposuction is used. Though this is not what many people want to hear, this problem will not go away on its own. It is important to realize that the fat grafting may not be permanent and may have to be repeated over time. There are also some instances where bad liposuction cannot be completely fixed if you have sagging skin or little elasticity, it may be hard to completely correct.
Another popular procedure, especially among women, is a tummy tuck. Also called abdominoplasty, this is where excess skin and fat is removed abdominal muscles can also be brought back together if they have been separated due to childbirth or other trauma. Good candidates for liposuction and tummy tucks are those who have not been able to get rid of stubborn abdominal fat through traditional diet and exercise. It is also a good choice for those who have undergone gastric bypass surgery and are left with excess skin due to weight loss. It is important to remember that this is major surgery and as such comes with a fair amount of discomfort and a longer recovery period.
