Unfortunately, some people have undergone a bad or even disfiguring liposuction procedure. And certainly, those people have questions as to whether they have options that can fix their problems, such as corrective surgeries or procedures.
Liposuction is considered an artistic procedure, and it takes many years of experience—along with a great deal of skill—to become a premiere liposuction provider. A lack of skill and/or experience is one of the main reasons that a liposuction procedure goes wrong and produces less than desirable results.
A revision or corrective liposuction surgery is in some ways far more difficult than an original liposuction procedure. It often takes a higher attention to detail and far more time. In some cases, these types of procedures require specialized instruments, along with special techniques. At St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center, Dr. Thomas Wright and his team have invested in the technology and specialized instruments to deal with revision liposuction procedures.
Depending upon the individual case, a combination of techniques can be used, such as liposuction, liposhifting, and fat transfer. For instance, if you are experience peaks, liposuction can reduce those, while if you are experience dips or dimpling, a fat transfer procedure can help fill in those dents and depressions.
Recovery time can vary; however, it is usually minimal. You should be able to return to your regular routine within just a few days. Additionally, side effects will be minimal, but can include some discomfort, swelling, and bruising—all of which will usually dissipate after a few days.
