Scarring is one of the most common things to deal with during the post-surgery period. According to Dr. Rohrich, a majority of your healing depends on your genetics and where exactly the incision is located. The incisions which are placed in the nasal and eyelid areas are likely to heal quite well and most of the patients shall not have any scarring issues in these areas. But the practitioner strongly comments about the higher scarring incidence in the neck and shoulder area and advises all his patients to be extra careful when it comes to these areas. But the thing he stresses the most is the prevention of infection and avoiding of the sun to prevent any kind of further damage to the skin.

A lot of patients confuse themselves between liposculpture and liposuction as they sound similar in not only how they are pronounced but also in surgical terms to a certain extent. Dr. Rohrich clearly differentiates between the two.

And while you are considering to go for any type of plastic surgery, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Rohrich as he would make the procedure quite simpler and easier for you.
