If you are looking at this page, you are probably in search of corrective liposuction also known as revision liposuction in the Atlanta area. It is also called secondary liposuction. Dr. Okoro is a liposuction specialist and has helped many people correct poor and undesirable results from previous liposuction procedures from other physicians.
When is the correct time for Revision Liposuction
Revision liposuction is usually performed months after the primary liposuction. It is always better to wait for all the swelling and bruising to subside prior to any revision procedure. We prefer to start revisions after 6 months. However, some revision may be performed earlier depending on the situation and evaluation by Dr Okoro. Call our office for details or to schedule your confidential consultation.
Common Reason for increase in Revision liposuction
1) Liposuction procedure by people not adequately trained.
Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedure in the United States. Given the popularity of the procedure, a lot of physician (non-surgeons) now offer liposuction without any surgical training. They call themselves “cosmetic surgeon”. Any license physician can call themselves a cosmetic surgeon. Liposuction more than just sucking fat out. It requires surgical skills, judgment, experience. The results of liposuction depends on the surgeon not the equipment of the technology used.
2) Improper Planning
Without the proper training and experience, the patient receives either inadequate or too much treatment requiring revision. Dr. Okoro has an outstanding reputation as one of the leading liposuction experts.

Our goal is to improve your results. We are here to help you and not to hurt you. It is very difficult to get a perfect result from revision liposuction. Remember plastic surgery blends art, science and certain unpredictable elements of healing. The practice of medicine and surgery is not an exact science. The majority of surgeries proceeds without complications and do not require additional revisions. Some people will require more than one procedure depending on the extent of the deformity. Although good results are expected, there is no guarantee or warranty expressed or implied, on the results that may be obtained. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure.
