What To Expect During And After The Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction can remove excess, stubborn fat on multiple body areas, such as the neck, back, sides, abdomen, arms and thighs. During the surgery, a small, specialized cannula tube is placed underneath the skin. That tube vacuums fat cells from your body through small incisions. Afterward, sutures are used to close the incisions and specialized garments are worn .
Depending on the amount and size of treatment areas, liposuction may use either local or general anesthesia. Following liposuction, you may experience pain, bruising, swelling, and skin contour irregularities in treatment areas as the remaining fat adjusts. Typically, we recommend that patients wait several weeks before resuming daily activities. Maintaining a consistent weight with regular exercise and a healthy diet is crucial to preserving the results of your surgery.
Are You A Good Candidate For Liposuction?
Liposuction is not meant to remove significant amounts of fat, but rather to contour and shape the body by removing fat in specific areas. If you are currently within 30 pounds of your ideal weight and have good skin elasticity, liposuction may be a good option for you. Good skin elasticity generally makes for better results, as your skin may tighten after surgery more easily. Muscle tone is also an important feature in candidates, as these muscles can contribute to a more sculpted figure after the fat removal.
Common Areas To Target With Liposuction
Liposuction is available for various body areas that excess fat may accumulate. Popular treatment areas for liposuction include the abdomen, thighs, waist, and hips. However, liposuction may also remove fat from body areas such as the chest, neck, back, arms, and inner knees. The liposuction procedure does not resolve cellulite on the thighs or stretch marks on the skin of treatment areas.
Is It Possible To Combine Treatments?
Many patients opt for combining liposuction with other surgical procedures for enhanced results. Liposuction could accompany surgeries such as a breast lift, tummy tuck, Brazilian butt lift (BBL), and facelift.
