Why might I need liposuction revision surgery?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
Another area of concern that comes up frequently with patients considering liposuction is revisions. It is not uncommon to require a secondary revision after liposuction. Your doctor performs the liposuction procedure mostly by feel. Here again, this is where experience is a must. However, on occasion, there may be a small amount of fat left over in one particular area, which may not be noticeable at first, due to swelling from the initial procedure. If after four to six months these areas have not resolved, they can be taken care of by a small revision surgery to feather them out if necessary.
