Patients who have experienced a disappointing liposuction result the first time often go the extra mile to find a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in Los Angeles. Liposuction results that need correction require the high level of skill and experience of a body contouring specialist.
As a specialist in body sculpting, it's common for patients to seek me out to revise poor outcomes from liposuction done elsewhere. Many of these patients are candidates for revision liposuction or fat grafting. But while the need for corrective liposuction is common, plastic surgeons who can skillfully improve a contour problem may be more difficult to find.
It requires years of experience to deliver consistently pleasing results because corrective liposuction is difficult to perform. Each patient requires an individualized surgical plan. Most often, the approach involves at least two techniques and sometimes more than one session.
I have been performing corrective liposuction for many years and find the procedure very satisfying. I welcome you to request a consultation online or call (310) 300-1779 to schedule a meeting with me.
Liposuction results such as unnatural indentations, lumps, sagging, and creases can usually be improved with corrective liposuction. Depressions can be filled via fat transfer. I've been working on an exciting project with stem cell research with UCLA, where we have found that 90% of fat I remove is still alive after 96 hours in the laboratory. This is consistent with my clinical observation of excellent results with fat grafting. My gentle liposuction technique ensures that harvested fat cells have the best chance of surviving.
Areas that are overly prominent or lumpy can be treated with very gentle, precise power-assisted liposuction. The PAL system allows me a great deal of control so I can achieve fine sculpting for my patients.
Recovery from corrective liposuction is usually swift. Because I am careful to minimize tissue trauma and because the procedure is highly targeted, most people can get back to their lives in one or two days.
As with any cosmetic procedure, it's best to get it right the first time. If this didn't happen for you, be assured that there's every chance your body contour can be improved with corrective liposuction.
