Sorry to disagree with you, but you need to be realistic about what can be achieved by liposuction surgery. You have had a very thick subcutaneous layer of the fat, the skin above was not in good condition before the surgery and if the fat layer decreases during the operation, the skin must adjust to a smaller volume and contract.
So the result is very good.
If the performance was performed more aggressively, unevenness would occur and the skin would be fixed to the bottom in many places. The result is also adequate to other parts of your body.
You should be happy, because you have now better body proportions.
Kind regards

Dear Karina, if you are not happy with the illusion of 6 pack, where there is some fat in the bulges, or if you require a more stronger inward curve of your love handles, these can be achieved via a touch up liposuction. You must also realize, swelling of liposuction, does not goes away completely even after 5 months. It can take around a year, unless you undergo some special treatment sessions to get rid of your swelling quickly. I do not suggest a tummy tuck. In my opinion, it is not required, considering your good skin elasticity. Moreover, all of your fat has not been removed, since there is fat in the bulges created to give illusion of 6 packs. If you do require a touch up liposuction to make your tummy go totally flat, you should wait another 7 months for that. All the Best !

Dear karina,
Seeing your pictures, I would have recommended to you:
1) losing weight based on an advice of a nutritional professional and at the same time non-invasive procedures to tighten the skin and tissue under the skin in preparation for the surgery
2) based on the result of the first step, after 3-6 months, I would consider an abdominoplasty with liposuction – our Brazilian Safe Abdominoplasty with Lipoaspiration (BSAL) OR a water assisted liposuction (the BodyJet method) complemented by a plasma lipolysis to maximize the liposuction effect.

Your current situation can be improved. The BSAL could be the procedure able to solve your trouble and fulfill your expectations. If travelling to Europe is worth to you, get an online consultation or send us more pictures on
Looking forward to hearing from you.
