What Causes Botched Liposuction?

Botched liposuction surgery can result from several factors, like incorrect technique, under-correction, overcorrection, infections, or the surgeon’s inexperience. Dr. Ditesheim has encountered a range of liposuction irregularities throughout his career. Some of the most common causes of liposuction gone wrong include:

● Asymmetry: Deformities can appear in the treated areas, causing an unbalanced or irregular appearance.
● Skin irregularities: Some patients develop skin issues, like irregular bumps, keloids, or a rippled appearance in the treated areas.
● Dimples: Small fat pockets or scar tissue can sometimes create lumps or dimples in the skin.
● Overcorrection: This happens when too much fat is removed. Overcorrection can cause a gaunt appearance.
● Undercorrection: This happens when insufficient fat is removed, leaving patients dissatisfied with the results.
● Nerve damage: In extreme cases, some patients may suffer permanent nerve damage from botched liposuction.

Infections, loose or saggy skin, and excessive scarring may also occur after ‘bad liposuction.’

Can Botched Liposuction Be Corrected?

If you are unhappy with the results of your liposuction procedure, you may qualify for liposuction revision surgery. Dr. Ditesheim offers several liposuction correction surgeries. Here are some of the most common methods Dr. Ditesheim recommends to correct botched liposuction.

● Abdominoplasty: A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen. This surgery is often suggested to patients who want to improve the appearance of sagging skin caused by previous liposuction.
● Fat transfer: Lumps or dimples caused by botched lipo may be corrected using your own fat to smooth out the area.
● Corrective liposuction: This is another liposuction surgery to improve irregularities like sagging skin or additional excess fat caused by a previous procedure.
● Scar revision: Excessive scarring from liposuction surgery may need to be addressed using a dynamic surgical technique to minimize the appearance of scars.

Every case of botched liposuction is unique; in some cases, patients may need a combination of procedures for optimal results. Schedule your botched lipo consultation in Charlotte to learn about liposuction revision options.
