Ask the expert: scars from liposuction?

I want liposuction to remove stubborn fat around my stomach that won’t seem to shift, but does it leave scarring?

To begin with, liposuction helps remove and reshape unwanted fat pockets that diet and exercise are unable to.

So, for instance, if you wish to lose unwanted fat around your stomach but don’t want to lose fat on your face or some other area of your body, then liposuction is an ideal solution. In these cases, we would recommend the Vaser liposuction, which uses ultrasound energy set at a frequency to target only the fat cells, leaving all surrounding tissue mostly unharmed.

So compared to traditional methods, there is relatively less pain, less bruising and less blood loss, making the recovery 
time quicker. The scars for liposuction tend to be around 5mm, requiring one stitch, and they are placed in discreet areas like the belly button or creases so they are not noticeable.
