What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to remove excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and neck. Using a suction technique, this procedure contours and reshapes these areas, enhancing body proportions and improving overall appearance. Liposuction is typically performed under local or general anesthesia and is ideal for patients who have stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. We offer awake and asleep options for our patients. It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss solution but a body contouring treatment for achieving a more sculpted look.

What is the recovery time with Liposuction?

The recovery time for liposuction varies depending on the areas treated and the individual’s overall health. Generally, patients can expect to return home the same day, to light activities within a few days, and resume all normal routines within one to two weeks. Swelling and bruising are common and may take several weeks to fully subside. Wearing compression garments as directed by your surgeon can help reduce swelling and support the healing process. Full results are typically visible within three to six months as the body continues to heal and adjust. It's important to follow post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal outcomes.

Who is a good candidate for Liposuction?

A good candidate for liposuction is someone who is close to their ideal weight but has stubborn fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. Liposuction is most effective for individuals seeking body contouring rather than significant weight loss. It is important that candidates do not have any serious medical conditions that could complicate surgery and recovery. Consulting with one of our providers will help determine if liposuction is the right option based on individual goals and health status
