Looking at liposuction before-and-after photos is a great way to determine whether a surgeon’s abilities align with your desired results. However, there’s more to great results than you may see at first glance. As you research potential liposuction surgeons in the Toronto area, it’s important to know what to look for.
In this blog post, I’ll discuss a few ways you can judge the strength of a liposuction before-and-after transformation.
Liposuction scars are very small and should be difficult to spot. If you notice discolored, large, or poorly healed scars, it may be a sign that surgical skill is lacking. It may also indicate that the surgeon wasn’t thoughtful in his or her placement of the incisions.
Look for scars that are artfully disguised in natural creases or well hidden. These inconspicuous scars speak to a surgeon’s attention to detail. They also reflect the surgeon’s thoughtfulness about the surgery’s long-term effects on the body beyond just fat removal.
You should be able to recognize a clear, positive transformation in each “after” photo. The results may not be extreme—remember, liposuction is not a weight-loss surgery—but it should be evident which areas were treated. Treated areas typically include:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Inner knees
- Upper arms
An effective transformation may manifest as smoother curves, shapelier features, or sharper muscle definition.

You may also notice that different areas of the body blend more seamlessly together or that there are fewer bulges that catch your eye.
There is more to liposuction than simple fat removal. It takes a surgeon with an artistic eye to strategically remove the fat while leaving behind an attractively contoured figure. Obvious lumps and bumps, dimpling, or unnatural body proportions may be indicators of an unskilled approach.
In contrast, smooth and natural-looking contours are a sign of strong surgical ability. Smooth results also represent a successful healing process complete with proper aftercare, including the use of compression garments. A great surgeon provides plenty of information about how to take care of your body for strong results.
If you plan to combine your liposuction procedure with another enhancement as part of a Mommy Makeover, it’s important to look through each procedure’s gallery to make sure those results also align with your goals. Liposuction is frequently performed along with Brazilian butt lift and tummy tuck procedures, so it’s wise to browse through those photos as well.
