Scarring After Liposuction

Patients curious about Smart Liposuction in the Boston area are naturally concerned about potential scarring after the procedure. After all, if the point of a cosmetic procedure is to make you look as good as you feel, scarring can be a significant problem.

Fortunately, smart liposuction causes very little scarring.

It’s important to understand that “very little scarring” does not mean “no scarring.” Any surgical procedure will leave some scars, and smart liposuction is no exception. There will likely be scarring as a result of both the needed incisions and the motion of the thin tube that is used to remove fat cells.

However, smart liposuction requires only a few, tiny incisions, thus limiting potential scarring. Further, those incisions are made in inconspicuous, easy-to-hide locations, which means any resulting scars will not be easily noticeable.

One of the best ways to reduce post-operative scarring is to choose a smart liposuction doctor with years of experience in the procedure. The better the surgeon the smaller the scars, and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George Chatson offers outstanding skill and decades of experience.

If you’re a Boston-area resident considering smart liposuction, please contact Dr. George P. Chatson, M.D. for a consultation.
