Usually periareolar (about 1 inch scar in the lower part of the areola) that is generally inconspicuous. Sometimes, tiny scars remain in the armpit or chest after liposuction.

Usually pain is minimal, but since we want to make sure you will be comfortable, we do provide you with a prescription for pain medication.
