When stubborn fat just won’t go away no matter how well you eat or how much you work out, liposuction can help you get rid of pesky fat and enjoy the smooth, sleek physique you’ve been working so hard for. In the vast majority of cases, liposuction yields excellent results with smooth contours and a slimmer look.
However, in some rare cases, skin dimpling can occur, leaving a few lumps and bumps behind. Fortunately, there’s lots you can do to prevent dimples after liposuction.
1. Choose an Experienced Plastic Surgeon
Picking the best liposuction plastic surgeon in your area might sound like a no-brainer, but this tip can’t be stressed enough. Working with a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon will help to ensure that you get the smooth, beautiful results you’re hoping for with a minimized risk of complications.
2. Wear a Compression Garment
After liposuction, Dr. Mariotti will ask that you wear a compression garment for a few weeks. This not only helps to reduce swelling and keep you comfortable while you heal, but it can also minimize the chances of developing dimples after lipo.
In addition, be sure to follow all other post-liposuction guidelines, including limiting physical activity, not smoking and staying hydrated.
3. Maintain a Healthy, Stable Weight
Significant weight loss or gain after liposuction can contribute to skin dimpling and could also hinder the quality of your long-term results. To maintain a smooth, slim figure after lipo, keep up with your same great eating and exercise habits that you may have established leading up to your procedure.
