After liposuction some people experience subcutaneous ripples that cause the contour of the body to be uneven. Rippling, also known as dimpling and contour irregularities often appears as pockets of fat underneath the skin, lending that undesirable lumpy look.
It should be noted that although Rippling is always a possibility following liposuction, you can actually take measures to prevent it from happening.

What is the ripple factor?
Before figuring out how to prevent Rippling, it may best to understand first the factors that could influence its appearance:
. Extreme and/or frequent weight fluctuations – Thus, patients who choose to undergo liposuction should make the commitment to maintain a stable weight following surgery.
. Too much fat was removed during liposuction – One should keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss tool and is more appropriate for small amounts of fat.
. Uneven fat removal – This is why you need to choose a skilled plastic surgeon who knows how to remove fat evenly in your problem areas.
. Presence of cellulite prior to liposuction
. Degree of skin elasticity – Liposuction works best if your skin is elastic enough to contract and adhere to its new contours. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) following liposuction may have to be done if you have poor skin elasticity.

Although not all of the aforementioned factors can be directly controlled by you as a patient, here’s what you can do on your end to prevent Rippling from happening:
. Maintain stable weight. If you’re taking medications or supplements for certain conditions, figure out first if weight gain is one of their adverse effects.
. Stay hydrated inside and out!
. Massage your skin to help promote blood circulation after liposuction.
. Consider other procedures to help tighten the skin such as a tummy tuck or minimally invasive procedures such as laser.
