Liposuction - Will There be a Scar? - Adam L. Basner | Baltimore, MD

Hi, I’m Dr. Adam Basner and I’m a board-certified plastic surgeon in Baltimore, Maryland. A lot of people ask about the scars after liposuction and really its nothing to worry about. The incisions to put in the liposuction cannula or the liposuction tube are really about that big. And once they heal it just look like a tiny little mark on the body they’re white and they’re faded and no one notices them. I’ve literally made thousands of these incisions over the years and I can count on one hand the times I’ve needed to revise them. So while they may be a little bit red in the beginning once they’ve healed they’re basically unnoticeable.
