Lipo for scar tissue

Postby jlyn » Sat Nov 10, 2007 8:51 pm

Dr. Amron, I had a full tt with mr in Dec. 06, since then I have been told by my ps that the bulky hard area under my bellybutton is scar tissue. He suggested trying to lipo it out. What do you think? Reply is greatly appreciated. Jlyn

Dear Jlyn.

This is a very interesting question that commonly comes up. What is the role of liposuction after a procedure like a tummy tuck?

In my experience, many times there are areas of firmness or hardness after a tummy tuck. This could be either some residual fat that does need to be removed with liposuction or, alternatively, sometimes there is some scar tissue there that can benefit from the area being liposuctioned in just the right way. When I am trying to soften up scar tissue with liposuction, I will use a very small spatula cannula (a small, flat-tipped cannula) to break up the scar tissue and allow the area to settle down in a flatter way.

So to summarize, yes there could be a role for liposuction in this case to either reduce some residual fat that may be remaining or to break up some scar tissue and allow the area to flatten, but it has to be done just the right approach.

Let me know if this answers your question,

Dr. Amron, Thank you very much for replying to my post. I feel much better now getting another opinion about this. I am pretty sure I have some residual fat but I also believe the majority of it is scar tissue otherwise it would not be hard. Is that right or not? I guess necrotic fat could be hard, right? I plan to pursue a resolution about this, but I am going to wait a few more months and hope maybe it will soften more. Thanks again. Jlyn

Dear Jlyn,

Thanks for your compliments. I think it’s most likely to be scar tissue and not necrotic fat. It might have been necrotic fat before, but now I believe now its scar tissue.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask me.
