Need Revision Liposuction to Correct Defects from Previous Liposuction Procedures?
Rahil Khan, M.D.

Not every liposuction surgery goes correctly, which can leave the body looking less than ideal. If you have gotten liposuction and it has not turned out the way that you had hoped, you may want to consider getting Revision Liposuction surgery. This surgery, in essence, is utilized to correct previous attempts at liposuction, which may have not been performed correctly or in the best manner possible. You may be surprised how many times this is necessary, as Revision Liposuction Surgery makes up over a third of Ray Khan’s liposuction cases. There are a handful of procedures and methods that can be used in order to fix a previous liposuction surgery that did not have great results, but the most effective is Vaser liposuction.
Advantages of VASER (Ultrasound) Revision Liposuction:
Vaser liposuction uses an ultrasound, which essentially checks out the inside of the body and provides a clear analysis of what needs to be corrected. Using this technology allows a surgeon to correct scar tissue problems, divots and bumps in the skin, irregularity in skin tone and color and various other things that are important during this type of revision surgery. Utilizing this method allows a surgeon to sculpt a person’s body, literally how ever they would like to look. However, it may also require that fat deposits be taken from other areas in order to smooth out areas of the body that need more fat. This is called sculpting, based on the fact that the surgeons are taking material from one area of the body and relocating it to another area, in order to create the desired proportions on the body.
Advantages of Going with Vaser Surgery
One of the biggest advantages of going with Vaser surgery is the fact that it can be done with local anesthesia, although there are some cases where a person may have to be put under through intravenous sedation. Another great thing is the fact that there is a much lower risk of developing skin problems as a result of the surgery, which is something that a lot of people are worried about when they consider getting Liposuction surgery in the first place. Many people are concerned with how long they are going to be out of commission from any type of liposuction surgery.
The great thing about Vaser liposuction is the fact that there is an extremely short recovery time, so those people that go with this method can expect to be back to full capacity very rapidly. Sculpting the body with Liposuction surgery involves taking fat from other areas of the body, and perhaps the biggest benefit of Vaser Liposuction, is the fact that there is a much higher fat survival rate. There can be problems when fat is taken from one part of the body and transferred, as the fat cells can die, but Vaser Liposuction is by far the best method and has a much higher survival rate. Less bruising and blood loss is something you can expect with Vaser Liposuction, but the skin tightening qualities and ability to sculpt the body with this method is the most attractive attribute to this method.
