Am I a good candidate for Liposuction?
- You may want to consider liposuction if you aren’t happy with the appearance of a body area due to excess fat deposits and it is diminishing your quality of life. Other factors to consider are that you must have good skin elasticity, be near your ideal weight, and be a non-smoker.
What is Liposuction?
- Liposuction is a body-sculpting surgical procedure that reshapes targeted areas of the body. If you have specific areas of your body that do not respond to weight loss or exercise, liposuction may be an ideal solution for you. Liposuction is a surgical procedure performed using a suction device to remove fat cells from targeted areas. Its purpose is to contour that area, creating a sleek, natural appearance.
What is the recovery like after liposuction?
- Following your liposuction procedure, special compression garments will need to be worn to diminish swelling. Redness, bruising, and swelling are expected, and any discomfort can be controlled with pain medication, but most patients do not report significant pain after liposuction. Most patients can return to a desk job within a few days after liposuction. However, recovery time may differ from patient to patient and is dependent on the specific locations and number of areas treated.
What are the risks with liposuction?
- Liposuction involves making incisions in the skin, which means scarring is inevitable. The length of the incisions is typically very short, and our skilled liposuction specialists will make sure to place the incisions in discreet places such as the natural folds of the skin, making scarring well concealed and hardly noticeable.
