DISCOLORATION OF THE SKIN AFTER LIPOSUCTION
Liposuction is a very safe procedure, but complications can occur that can produce thick scars, among other things. The skin is an amazing organ, and like many organs in the body, responds to different stimuli. Think about the eye. We can see because the cells on the eyes get stimulated by photons, allowing us to visualize everything that we see around us. The skin also responds to environmental stimulus. The skin has cells called melanocytes that determine its color. If you spend a lot of time outside, your skin can change color, or you may get a sunburn, among other things.
SDuring liposuction, fat is sucked out of the body using a hollow cannula. This fat can be reused for fat transfer later on, but the liposuction procedure creates inflammation and fluid collection. Sometimes, due to this inflammation, the cells of the skin will react and some areas of the skin can get discolored. Discoloration after liposuction is something that you do not need to worry about. If it occurs, we can use creams like hydroquinone and cocoa butter to help bleach the area completely. Understanding the possible results of liposuction is important so that if you develop a complication, you will recognize it and treat it accordingly to provide a good solution.
