Liposuction for a Slimmer Contour

Liposuction is a very popular procedure because it is designed to permanently remove excess fatty tissue from troubling areas that diet and exercise cannot reach. This procedure is ideal for both men and women, it can target trouble areas such as hips, buttocks, flanks, thighs, arms, abdomen, face and neck and many other places.

About Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction procedure is fairly simple and can provide drastic improvements on your overall body contour. The best part is that you can target multiple areas if desired in order to achieve desired results.

The goal is to reduce fat cells while reshaping and improving the overall body contour. Many times individuals choose to combine a liposuction procedure with a tummy tuck procedure to provide them with better results.

Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient facility or a surgical center. The surgeon makes small (less than 1/2 inch) incisions in the areas to be treated.  The length of the procedure depends on the patient’s overall condition; it can take 1-4 hours. Drain tubes may be used depending on how many areas are treated.

We can perform liposuction on different areas of the body such as; arm, body, bra lipo, and more. Learn more about upper body liposuction and/or lower body liposuction.

What to Expect After Surgery

After your procedure you will experience swelling and throbbing in the targeted region. However, we will prescribe necessary medication to ease any discomfort you may be feeling. The first few days will be the most difficult, however in a few days you will notice a significant reduction in swelling.

You will be given garments that provide pressure to minimize any swelling and help the healing process. Results are noticeable almost immediately after surgery and will continue to improve as your body heals and swelling subsides. During your consultation, your cosmetic surgeon will provide further instructions for your recovery process.
