There are a vast number of reasons a patient may choose to look at liposuction as a method of fat removal. For some, stubborn fat deposits are a source of frustration despite hard work, exercise and diet. For others, fat removal is closely linked to a desire to sculpt and shape the body into a desired form. Whatever the motivation may be, the decision to undergo liposuction is personal choice that requires a skilled physician who understands the physical and psychological picture associated with body alteration in order to avoid bad liposuction procedures.
When performed properly, liposuction is a highly effective procedure that can produce results aiding in the improvement of self-esteem. Increased confidence can in turn promote overall patient health and well-being. On the other side of that spectrum, patients who have a negative experience with liposuction may find themselves on the receiving end of both physical and mental harm. Dealing with disfigurements as a result of an unsuccessful procedure often lead patients trying to manage feelings of helplessness, depression and shame alongside physical trauma that’s been endured.
“I had a really bad liposuction in Costa Rica back in 2015 ! They deformed my legs so bad that I was devastated!!! I was referred to Dr. Thomas Wright for liposuction revision to fix all the deformation that the people from Costa Rica did and he was able to fix it!!! They look amazing!!! It was a really strong process of 2 treatments! But he saved my legs!!!” – GG
Bad liposuction procedures can happen for a number of reasons. A lack of research or understanding can lead patients to undergo procedures with inexperienced physicians. Similarly, those in search of a “cheap” solution to fat removal will often find themselves in dangerous situations with detrimental surgical results.
For those patients who have experienced a botched liposuction procedure, merely living with the consequences is not a necessary course of action. Liposuction revision is viable, safe and efficient route to combating the negative effects of a previous procedure and a route towards mental health recovery as well.
Revision liposuction, commonly referred to as corrective liposuction, is performed with the goal of repairing damage incurred during unsuccessful liposuction procedures. While the best physical results are always obtained through a successful initial procedure, revision liposuction is the best follow-up option. Patients undergoing revision liposuction should expect a qualified physician to take an extensive amount of time diagnosing issues and crafting a comprehensive treatment plan. As opposed to a botched liposuction procedure, revision liposuction requires far more time, specialized planning and dedicated care.

Liposuction procedures are often deemed exclusively cosmetic by many insurance companies, however, those seeking Liposuction Revision treatments should be sure to check with their insurance company prior to any procedures being performed. In a few rare cases, if physical trauma incurred during the initial botched procedure led to major medical conditions that must be corrected, there is a chance the cost of care could be covered.
