Thank you for your question and my sincerest apologies for the delay. In regards to scarring, Tumescent Liposuction is an umbrella term that refers to the technique where a diluted anaesthetic solution is administered into the fat cells prior to them being removed through suction (liposuction). Most forms of liposuction performed today are done under tumescent anaesthesia. Although there are different methods that utilise different styles of technology (such as liquid/water jet liposuction or laser liposuction) the removal of fat will be extracted through very small incision sites. These sites look like very small mosquito bites and as they heal should fade away to basically nothing over time. On top of which, there are post surgical scar creams that can help to minimise scarring post lipo. I recommend Strataderm and Stratamed post procedure to my patients.
The best liposuction method for you will depend on a number of factors and I always recommend you have a consultation and speak with your doctor who would be performing your procedure. Your skin will naturally retract back as you heal post liposuction. Vaser Liposuction produces a heat energy that can help to smooth the skin and cause the skin to retract back nicely. Cellulaze is a treatment currently being used to target cellulite, which uses the latest technology to melt fat cells and warm up the deep layers of skin tissue causing the collagen to tighten, thus helping the skin to contract.
As I mentioned above, I always recommend a consultation. Your doctor can examine your areas of concern and advise you on the best method for you to produce your best results. I hope you have found this information helpful.
Have a lovely day,
Dr Joseph Ajaka
