The May 10 2005 post at Awfulplasticsurgery.com features an image of Tara Reid with a ripply stomach. The supposition is that she may have had liposuction.
Overzealous liposuction can indeed leave marks like those we see in the image posted there. This is really irregularity in the fatty layer beneath the skin. In order to maintain a smooth contour to the skin, there needs to be fat between the skin and muscular layer. Preferably, this layer should be even.
Here is an image of a woman that came to the office requesting that I repair her abdomen after a well-known plastic surgeon had performed liposuction:
Her smoking history made surgery ill-advised, therefore I was unable to help her.
The bottom line is that it is best to be conservative in liposuction cases. We don’t want to take all the fat. You need some.
