WHAT IS LIPOSUCTION?
Despite diet and exercise, there are some areas of persistent fat that are difficult to shed. Liposuction surgically reduces localized pockets of fat and effectively refines the body’s shape.
Liposuction can be performed on almost any area of the body, but our most popular targeted areas include: abdomen, thigh, neck, upper arms, and back.
Advantages of having Liposuction include:
- Natural looking body fat distribution
- Fat cells are removed which means it’s impossible to gain weight in the treated areas
- Enhanced self esteem
- Overall improved health: better mobility, lower triglycerides, increased libido, prevention of obesity-related health problems.
DURING AND AFTER YOUR SURGERY
Anesthesia Type: Anesthesia will depend on the scope of the procedure. If a small area is being treated, it is possible the patient would receive sedation, but most times a general anesthetic is administered.
Duration of Surgery: This is fully dependent on the number of areas being treated and the size of those areas.
In/Outpatient: After some time in the recovery room, the patient is able to go home the same day as surgery.
Length of Recovery and Return to Work: The patient will return to work within 2-5 days but should wait four to six weeks before any vigorous activities. Compression garments will help to reduce the swelling and are required for up to six weeks following surgery.
Final Results: After the initial swelling subsides, the patient will see dramatic improvement after three to six months of the procedure. It could take up to a full year to realize the final result.
Post-Operative Medication: Pain medication may be prescribed and a compression garment must be worn.
Pricing: Can vary based on the type and extent of the surgery and the patient’s individual concerns
