Q:

How can I correct dimpling on my thighs from a previous liposuction procedure, about five years ago?

A:

It is sometimes difficult to correct this situation.  Improvement would depend on the size and depth of the depressions as well as the current quality of the skin and the possible presence of preexisting cellulite.  Fat injections are frequently helpful.  While it is an "off label" use, certain fillers can be used with some success.  Treatment would need to be redone on a periodic basis.  Even so, trying a filler on just a few of these areas can give you and the plastic surgeon an idea as to how the indentation will respond.  In my opinion, you should seek a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to obtain an authoritative opinion as to the best way to proceed in your particular case.
