Liposuction and Scarring


As with any surgical procedure, liposuction will leave some scars. However, the incisions made by Scottsdale liposuction surgeon Dr. John Corey are so small, scarring is seldom an issue. In fact, incisions for the modern liposuction techniques we offer are often no longer than three millimeters and can generally be hidden in the natural folds of your skin.

While excessive scarring is uncommon, your scars will depend on your body’s natural healing ability, your genetics, the pigmentation of your skin, and how well you follow Dr. Corey’s postoperative advice. Dr. Corey will provide you with specific instructions to follow after your Scottsdale liposuction procedure. Make sure you follow these to help reduce your risk of visible scarring.
