Are there any scars left as a result of this liposuction procedure?
Skin irregularities, lumpiness, hardness and dimpling may appear post-operatively. Most of these problems disappear with time, but localized skin firmness, lumpiness and or irregularities may be permanent. In dark skinned patients, hyper-pigmented scars (dark to black scars) can occur and may be permanent. Other objectionable scarring such as keloids are possible. If loose skin is present in the treated area(s), it may or may not shrink to conform to the new contour.
