Fibrosis is a common complication of LIPOSUCTION. After a few weeks or throughout the post-op, many people notice it. You may first detect some lumps of the scar tissue that may harden and become painful. This is usually a result of edema, bacteria, and improper drainage. You must begin post-operative lymphatic drainage (MLD) as soon as possible, wear your garment daily, and use the correct amount of compression to prevent fluid build-up for healing effectively and quickly.
If Liposuction Fibrosis still occurs the Aspen After Surgery Center is the one-stop destination when it comes to offering the best services at affordable prices to help correct these issues.
What is the underlying cause of fibrosis?
When the tissue is traumatized it heals by forming fibers whose primary function is to reunite the fragmented parts. In the aftermath of liposuction, additional fibrous tissue is a sign of liposuction fibrosis. Fibrosis also promotes swelling and hardness of the surrounding tissues. Painful lumps and dips are other possible symptoms.
Other issues with Liposuction:
In the cannula’s locations, fat that was not retrieved because it was non-vascularized (outside of the adipocytes) can build up. Because of this, a condition known as fibrosis is formed, and the fat degenerates until it is removed by macrophages (specialized cells involved in the detection, phagocytosis, and destruction of bacteria and other harmful organisms).
In addition to fat, collagen fibers displaced by the cannula aspiration can collect after liposuction. As a result, fibrous patches will be formed.
Inflammation has a critical role in wound healing and scar formation. Smoking has been linked to an increased risk of wound problems following surgery, possibly because it interferes with normal inflammatory physiology. As a result, your surgeon has requested that you refrain from smoking for at least a month before and during the treatment and recovery period.
Fibrosis can be caused by a deficiency in vitamins, proteins, and minerals. Before or during the healing process, a lack of nourishment can delay healing and diminish wound strength.
Post-lipo fibrosis can’t always be avoided or eliminated, but MLD and other devices can help lessen discomfort and other symptoms and improve the patient’s look.
The Aspen After Surgery Center not only offers Post Op Certified Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) but also non-surgical treatment for Fibrosis once it starts. The trick is that treatment must start right away once its noticed. Do Not wait. Other important notes are once Fibrosis begins, Lymphatic drainage will NOT help break down Fibrosis. It’s too late by that point. Only Formal Fibrosis treatment can help.
