Thinking about liposuction? You’ve probably got questions. Call our offices and schedule your liposuction consultation. We’ll answer your questions and provide personalized body contouring advice. Keep reading for answers to some commonly asked liposuction questions.
Is Liposuction a Weight Loss Treatment?
Liposuction is a body contouring treatment; not a weight loss secret. It is best suited to patients who are close to their ideal weight, but with fat concentrated in specific areas. These stubborn fat pockets are often diet and exercise-resistant, making liposuction one of the most effective ways to lose the fat and obtain your ideal shape. Liposuction can be performed on many areas, but some of the common areas include the chin, abdomen, thighs, hips, knees, arms, back, or male breasts (gynecomastia).
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
The best candidates for liposuction are close to their ideal weight, but with stubborn fat pockets. If you’ve tried to lose the fat with diet and exercise, but have a few problem areas where it remains, ask us about liposuction. Good skin elasticity is important to ensure a smooth, tight look after treatment. Laser assisted liposuction may help tighten skin in patients with loose skin.
What Types of Liposuction Do You Offer?
We offer a variety of liposuction treatments to ensure the best possible results for each patient. We’ll discuss your options and make recommendations about the best course of treatment for you during your consultation. We offer traditional liposuction and a few less invasive options (including ultrasonic assisted liposuction and water assisted liposuction).
What’s Recovery Like After Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure and, thus, will require some downtime after treatment. You’ll need to wear an elastic garment for about 2-3 weeks. Most patients return home to recover a few hours after surgery. The pain is typically mild, and we’ll prescribe pain medication to ensure your comfort. You will have some bruising and swelling, but this should resolve within a couple of weeks. Most people miss less than a week from work and resume full activities—including exercise—in just a few weeks.
