What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a fat reduction technique that involves the removal of fat from the body through a vacuum pump. Liposuction, often referred to simply as lipo, is used in many different surgical procedures and also as a stand-alone service. For many patients, eliminating stubborn fat is the most difficult task when it comes to achieving the ideal physique. Even with diet and exercise, it can be difficult to get rid of fat in certain areas. Liposuction is the solution to this problem. By targeting and removing fat in specific areas, patients can enjoy significant improvements in body composition that result in a more sculpted appearance. Plus, liposuction can be used on nearly any area of the body, including:

What is the Liposuction Treatment Like?
The liposuction procedure is performed in our surgicenter, ensuring that our patients receive a safe and comfortable treatment. The type of anesthetic used will vary depending on the location and size of the treatment area. As treatment begins, we will make a small incision in the desired treatment area. Then, we will insert a small metal tube into this incision. The tube will dislodge and remove fat from the body using vacuum technology. This process will continue until the desired results are achieved. While the length of treatment can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary, a typical liposuction treatment takes about one hour to complete.
What is the Liposuction Recovery Like?
After a liposuction procedure, it is common to experience some soreness, bruising, and swelling in the treatment area. These symptoms may also vary depending on the extent of treatment performed. Patients are encouraged to take several days away from work and other activities to let the body heal. Additionally, it is necessary to avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for about a month after treatment.
What Liposuction Results Can I Expect?
The results from the liposuction procedure will be noticeable immediately, but it may take a few weeks for all swelling to subside and for the full results to become visible. Once fat cells are removed via liposuction, the results are permanent. However, future weight gain can impact your results. We encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits to make their results last as long as possible.
