Treating BBL Liposuction Scars in Los Angeles


We have seen a considerable amount of liposuction and BBL scars that require long-term attention in order to fix abnormal scarring and poor cosmetic results. The most common presentations are among patients who have had a liposuction procedure combined with BBL where the scars are hyperpigmented and thickened. Patients complain of visible scars on the buttocks and hips requiring a combination of surgical excision, laser, and radiofrequency scar treatment.

Liposuction BBL scars are prone to hypertrophy and keloid scarring in all skin types. Appropriate treatment of liposuction scars include the application of Plato’s Scar Serum twice daily once the skin has healed over from surgery. The scar serum can modulate scar growth when combined with laser therapy.

For those patients who have already developed thick and liposuction scars from a BBL, it’s important to reduce the visibility of the scar and we use a combination of techniques that include melapeel pink for deep hyperpigmentation, Melarase cream for dark discoloration can also be applied twice daily on the skin, and laser therapy to improve the texture and contour of the scars.
  • Melapeel Pink for dark scars
  • Chemical peels
  • Fractional CO2 laser
  • Clear and Brilliant laser
  • Venus Viva
  • Titan laser
  • Vbeam PDL
