Many patients want to know if liposuction will cause scars, or unwanted changes to the skin. Your skin elasticity and firmness will contribute to the results. Toned, elastic skin tends to create smooth, even results. However, for those who have stretched, thinning, or sagging skin, the result can appear unsatisfactory after removing underlying fat. Your surgeon will examine you to determine if you’re a good candidate for liposuction. Scars resulting from modern liposuction are typically tiny and placed in natural creases or well-hidden areas. Once healed, they should be nearly invisible.
