Liposuction can reduce localized deposits of fat that remain even after diet and exercise. Liposuction can be used to achieve a smoother body contour and comfortable fit in clothing.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted deposits of fat from specific areas of the body including the face, neck, upper arms, trunk, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. The best candidates for liposuction are individuals of relatively normal weight who have excess fat in particular body areas. There are a variety of surgical techniques for liposuction. These procedures include but are not limited to: Suction-assisted Lipectomy, Ultrasound-assisted Lipectomy and Tumescent Liposuction. The treatment area and technique may vary and will be selected by your surgeon to meet your individual needs.
Sutures are dissolvable. A compression garment must be worn 24 hrs a day for up to 2-4 weeks, then 12 hours/day for the next 3-4 weeks. This will reduce swelling and ensure proper healing. Most patients return to non-strenuous work within 1 - 2 weeks depending on the number of areas treated and the volume of fat that was removed. Return to strenuous activities in 4 - 6 weeks. Full recovery from swelling and bruising typically takes 1 - 6 months or more.
