Liposuction is a popular surgical body contouring procedure that targets and removes excess fat throughout the body. It’s a highly individualized treatment for patients with fat deposits that are non-responsive to diet and exercise.
Liposuction Can Treat:
• Abdomen and Waist
• Upper Arms
How Does It Work?
Once liposuction treatment areas are determined, you’ll be given anesthesia in preparation for your procedure. Small incisions are made and a thin hollow tube is inserted to help loosen excess fat. Fat is then removed through a surgical vacuum.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires careful contemplation. Our practice has board-certified surgeons who are up-to-date on the latest surgical techniques to help you achieve optimal results with minimal downtime. In fact, we give multiple lectures every year across the country about the latest developments in liposuction.
When Can I Expect to See Results?
Immediate results will be evident as surgical swelling begins to subside. It can take up to 4 months for swelling to completely dissipate. Final results from your liposuction procedure may take 6-12 months.
In many cases, only one liposuction procedure is necessary. However, for more extensive weight loss, several treatments may be required. Talk to your surgeon about what may be right for you.
Liposuction is a long-lasting fat-reduction procedure. Through diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes you can maintain a healthy weight.
Does It Hurt?
Before your liposuction procedure, your surgeon will suggest either local anesthesia, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Discomfort should be minimal during the procedure. After your liposuction treatment, you may be asked to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling.
Soreness is often worst 2-4 days post-procedure and steadily decreases as time passes. You may feel stiff or sore for a few weeks following your liposuction treatment. Any pain you experience can easily be tamed with medications.
