What is Liposuction?
What is the Liposuction Procedure Like?
Liposuction can be performed in-office or in the hospital, depending on the patient and the procedure. Additionally, the procedure may be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Under no circumstances will the patient feel pain during the procedure.
To perform the liposuction, our team uses a small tube to remove the fat from the targeted area. The tube targets the area through tiny incisions. The fat is removed through suction because the small tube is attached to a vacuum machine.
What Can I Expect After a Liposuction Procedure?
Many patients can return home a few hours following the procedure, but alternative transportation needs to be arranged ahead of time. Depending on the intensity of the procedure, some patients will need to stay overnight for observation in the hospital. After the procedure, patients need to wear support garments for a duration of time and may need some extra help in the household.
Full recovery time varies between patients, but many patients return to work a week following the procedure. Normal symptoms following the procedures are some slight discomfort, swelling, and minor discomfort. Our team will prescribe medication to manage discomfort as needed. The stitches will dissolve, and swelling will subside in two to three weeks, revealing immediate results of the procedure.
Who is a Strong Candidate for Liposuction?
Individuals with pockets of fat on their body that look disproportionate are strong candidates for liposuction. Sometimes, individuals feel they have areas of excess fat that are unchanged by diet and exercise, and liposuction can resolve that concern completely. Typically, liposuction achieves optimal results in patients with skin elasticity. Patients with loose or sagging skin may benefit from a lift procedure or other fat-targeting procedure at our office.
