Skin dimpling is an unfortunate but common post-lipo complication, where excessive fat is removed, and the aesthetic appearance is overlooked. Contour deformities, such as skin dimpling, occur in about 20% of liposuction cases.
Undergoing liposuction is a big step in realising one's physical appearance aspirations. In the hands of a qualified and experienced doctor with artistic and aesthetic sense, the results are often more than just satisfying. However, with any form of surgery, there are risks involved that a patient needs to be aware of.
Overcorrection, contour irregularity, asymmetry, and scarring are complications associated with liposuction. However, according to a study, these can be avoided .
Skin dimpling is an unfortunate but common post-lipo complication, where excessive fat is removed, and the aesthetic appearance is overlooked. Contour deformities, such as skin dimpling, occur in about 20% of liposuction cases [2, 3, 4].
Liposuction is a clinically proven body contouring procedure requiring the doctor to have a 3D artistic understanding of the anatomical and surgical adipose layers  in order to achieve a smooth and aesthetically pleasing result for the patients.
A well-trained doctor with an eye for detail can avoid this, as mastery of liposuction requires a combination of scientific knowledge and artistry with precision, which are only attainable with clinical experience .
Liposuction corrective is a procedure that corrects defects and improves the appearance, unfortunately, caused by a previous botched liposuction surgery. Corrective liposuction requires a doctor with skilled hands, years of experience and is focused on facial and body contouring.
Dr Ivan Puah, Medical Director Amaris B. Clinic, is not just an accredited liposuction doctor in Singapore, but his forte also lies in performing liposuction corrective surgery. He has over 17 years of liposuction, body contouring and enhancement experience and has received numerous body sculpting training overseas, such as in Italy, the United States of America and Argentina.
His keen eye for detail and aesthetic sense, coupled with practical knowledge, has enabled him to help many patients achieve their desired goals.
Dr Puah understands that each individual's body shape, fat anatomy, and muscle curvature are unique and will apply the most appropriate approach to address their issues effectively.
It can never be overemphasised that when looking for a doctor for review procedure purposes, experience, qualification, and proven results are critical factors. In the hands of a doctor with all of these qualities, aspirations can be achieved safely, and hope will become a reality for those with issues that need to be corrected.
