What Type of Scars You Can Anticipate Following Leg Liposuction

Liposuction can be a helpful approach to help remove fat from numerous different areas. It is a versatile body contouring technique that can complete your figure and reveal a slimmer and more attractive body. This long-standing technique could be suitable if you are looking for a little extra help to get rid of uncontrollable fat in certain areas. But what if you are concerned about liposuction scars? 

Smooth Results with Liposuction

Liposuction is a type of body contouring that removes problem fat cells for patients who have grown exhausted with all other efforts. Ideal candidates for this fat removal procedure are healthy, non-smoking adults close to or just above their ideal weight with firm skin. Liposuction can smooth out stubborn, unwanted fat deposits in various target areas such as the chin, stomach, thighs, and back. Still, this approach usually requires surgical elements like general anesthesia and incisions, leading to possible scar tissue.

Will I Get Scars After Liposuction?

Liposuction is a popular liposuction surgery that removes unwanted fat deposits from the body. Various liposuction techniques typically involve making small incisions through which a cannula is used to dissolve and remove loose fat cells. Large scars are rare (but can still occur) because liposuction incisions are only about an inch long. However, these incisions will overgrow during healing, leading to some scarring. 

Will Scars Disappear After Liposuction?

Scars may appear after liposuction, but they are usually still present. One of the main advantages of this fat removal procedure is that the incisions are small, so liposuction scarring is relatively minor. 

However, scarring depends on the patient's hereditary predisposition for scar tissue and the surgeon's technique. Patients prone to scarring can expect visible liposuction scars after surgery, but these will fade over time, which can take between six months and a year. Patients with darker pigmented skin are likelier to have visible scars after liposuction. 

Women and men who want to treat problem areas such as the love handles or thighs may opt for liposuction. The good news is that liposuction is considered permanent, as fat cells do not regenerate once they have been extracted. 

However, the remaining fat cells in your body may grow and become larger if you gain weight in the future. Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure because there is a limit to the amount of fat safely removed with one design. You can maintain good results by maintaining a healthy lifestyle before and after liposuction.

Elite Body Sculpture's Leg AirSculpt Avoids Large Scars

If you still want to achieve dramatic changes but don't want to deal with the potentially large scarring of traditional leg liposuction, Elite Body Sculpture's Leg AirSculpt® can provide you with ideal results. 

Leg AirSculpt® skips the large incisions cut with scalpels and instead uses a biopsy punch to create a tiny two-millimeter aperture that leaves no visible scar, only a much smaller mark about the size of a freckle. Furthermore, our skilled surgeons hide these small entry points in natural skin folds where they can be easily concealed. 

No other leg contouring treatment can remove stubborn fat and allow patients to return to their daily routines the very next day.
