Even with an experienced surgeon, a liposuction procedure can have complications that lead to less-than-ideal results. In that case, you might need correction liposuction (revision liposuction) to fix the irregularities caused by the first surgery.
You might wonder if you should return to the same surgeon or explore liposuction revision abroad. There is no perfect answer, but traveling abroad for correction liposuction will introduce you to world-class doctors with affordable services, especially in medical tourism countries like Poland, Hungary, and Turkey.
Some of the benefits you will experience are not limited to affordability but includes the following:
You get the chance to recover in 5-star facilities

Revision Liposuction (68 Clinics)
The recovery time for revision liposuction abdomen will vary depending on the extent of the correction needed and the specific area being treated.
In general, patients can expect to return to normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. However, it is important to follow the specific recovery instructions provided by your surgeon to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
While liposhifting is generally considered safe, there are potential side effects to be aware of. Some common side effects of liposhifting may include the following:
Here is a step-by-step guide to how revision liposuction is typically performed:
The first step in the revision liposuction process is to meet with a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns and goals for the procedure. During the consultation, the surgeon will examine the treated area and assess your overall health to determine if revision liposuction is right for you.
Before the procedure, you will undergo a pre-operative evaluation to ensure that you are healthy enough for surgery. This may include a physical examination, laboratory tests, and other diagnostic tests.
On the day of the procedure, you will be given either local anesthesia or intravenous sedation to numb the area and minimize discomfort.
The surgeon will make small incisions in the treated area and insert a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) to suction out the excess fat.
The surgeon will use the cannula to remove the excess fat from the treated area gently.
If necessary, the surgeon may also perform skin tightening procedures to improve the contour and smoothness of the treated area.
Once the procedure is completed, the incisions will be closed and bandaged. You may be able to return home the same day after the procedure, although some may need to stay overnight in the hospital for observation. You will likely need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks to help with swelling and support the treated area as it heals.
It's important to follow your surgeon's post-treatment instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results and minimize the risk of complications. You should also schedule follow-up appointments with your surgeon to monitor your progress and address any concerns you may have.
How long after lipo can you have a revision?
It's generally recommended to wait at least six months after a liposuction procedure before considering revision liposuction. This allows sufficient time for the treated area to heal fully and for any swelling or bruising to subside.
Can your stomach get big again after liposuction?
Unfortunately, fat can return after liposuction. Following a healthy diet and exercise routine is essential to maintain the best possible results after liposuction. This will help you maintain a healthy weight and keep the treated area looking smooth and contoured.
Can liposuction be reversed?
Yes! If the liposuction results go wrong, you can undergo the revision liposuction treatments.
Which liposuction procedure removes the most fat?
Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction (UAL): This technique uses ultrasonic energy to break up and liquefy fat before suctioning it. UAL may be more effective for removing large amounts of fat or treating more extensive areas, but it may also be more painful and have a longer recovery time.
