In which cases is it recommended?
The ageing process of skin causes a low skin elasticity which unables the skin to adjust to a new tissue volume and reattach to it evenly. That is why liposuction is not recommended for some clients. Several foldings, uneven surfaces and dimples could emerge during the healing process, with a little aesthetic effect.
