Admit it: You’ve always been curious about liposuction surgery. Maybe you have a stubborn fat pooch that just will not respond to diet and exercise, or maybe you’re genetically prone to storing fat in a specific area. Whatever the case may be, you’re interested in liposuction surgery. You just have one question…
Will liposuction leave a scar?
The simple answer is yes – liposuction surgery will leave a scar. That’s because any surgery that involves an incision will leave a mark on your skin. However, if you’re picturing a massive scar across your stomach, don’t worry. Liposuction incisions are tiny (we’re talking millimeters here), meaning your liposuction scar will not be visible unless someone gets really close to the treatment area.
Additionally, your liposuction incision will be placed in an area that will minimize the surgery scar as much as possible. For example, if you’re getting liposuction for your stomach, the incision can be placed in the pubic area, or within the belly button. Doing so helps ensure that your scar is practically invisible, so you can show off your new results with confidence.
If you’re genetically predisposed to developing darker scars, be sure to discuss this concern with your plastic surgeon before the procedure.
