What is Fibrosis After Liposuction?

After any kind of surgery, the skin can build up adhesions. This adhesion is present in the process of scarring and is an unnatural accumulation of elements in the form of bands which abnormally connect two or more surfaces of tissues and disturb the body functions. Such adhesions may arise from surgical procedures, trauma, and radiations during the process of wound repair, especially when the process is unbalanced. These adhesions may be made up of atoms, molecules, cells, and tissues. They hinder organ movements and may block blood supply and nutrition to the organs, causing pain and decreasing organ functioning. Such adhesions are always considered abnormal.

In order to get rid of such adhesions or scars and to improve the organ function and the appearance of the superficial skin, one may have to undergo another surgery called “revision”. This means readmission to the clinic where you got the surgery. A revision, it considered another surgery, with the consequent risk of any surgery, risk in the anesthesia, infections and extra money loss. More recent modalities offer non-invasive physiotherapy techniques to deal with adhesions. During the healing process after surgery, trauma or radiation injuries fibrin deposits appear on to the injured tissues. This deposited fibrin causes nearby tissues or organs to adhere to each other. In other words, fibrin works as a bridge between the two or more structures at the site of healed points. Naturally, the human body is equipped with certain enzymes which dissolve the extra fibrin and prevent these adhesions. So, the adhesions develop when these enzymes are under-produced or damaged due to injury or radiations, leaving the fibrin to continue to deposit and bind the structures to each other. Adhesions may develop anywhere in the body where some tissues are damaged or eroded after surgery or trauma.

Our company has the patent for a technique that helps in improving this condition. This technique is called Fibrosis after Liposuction (Sotelo-Paz technique). It is a non-invasive technique that reestablishes the blood supply to the affected area, allowing the tissue to oxygenate and transform into a healthier tissue. It decreases the level of pain and in particular, it improves the appearance of the plastic surgery, which is ultimately what a person looks for when undergoing cosmetic surgery.

Fibrosis after liposuction is an issue that nobody wants to deal with. We could say that it is the most common of the imperfections after liposuction and at the same time the one that most easily can appear. While it is true that all people after undergoing plastic surgery have fibrosis, some are considered more obvious and in the case of cosmetic surgery, to be a new problem after a solution. Without being too technical, I could say that fibrosis is a set of imperfections that are observed after liposuction and that are described as painful and hard lumps distributed on the skin where liposuction has been done. Also, large pores, tissue discoloration, uneven areas, folding skin and in some cases a cellulite skin without becoming cellulite. That is why some people confuse fibrosis and treat it as cellulite, producing an adverse effect, that in order to remove it, what is done is to make it harder.
