Why should I consider liposuction?
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, can slim and even reshape certain areas of the body. Liposuction removes excess fat deposits in stubborn areas that diet and exercise don’t always reach. Some of the most common areas treated by liposuction include:
- The abdomen, love handles and waist
- Thighs, hips and buttocks
- Arms, neck and back
- Calves and ankles
Ideal candidates for liposuction include adults within 30% of their ideal weight, with firm skin and good muscle tone. Patients considering liposuction should be healthy and free of life-threatening medical conditions or diseases which could impair healing.
It’s important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss treatment or an effective treatment for cellulite. Patients with stubborn areas of fat but who exercise regularly are the best candidates for liposuction.
What happens during a liposuction procedure?
Liposuction uses many small, inconspicuous incisions near the treatment area. First, a sterile liquid solution is injected into the treatment site. This solution reduces bleeding and trauma to healthy tissues. Then, a thin hollow tube also known as a cannula, is inserted into the small incisions, below the skin’s surface. Dr. Brou will slide the cannula in a back and forth motion to loosen stubborn fat cells. Those fat cells are then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum.
Additionally, Dr. Brou offers tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction methods, which are not only safer than previously-used methods but also offer a faster recovery time and can produce results that are smoother and unsurpassed by other methods of liposuction.
If you have concerns regarding the appearance and location of your surgical scars, discuss these with Dr. Brou during your pre-operative consultation.
How much down time should I expect with liposuction surgery?
Most patients can expect about a week of downtime after liposuction. You will be able to get up and move around freely, but you will have swelling and some soreness. We will give you a compression garment to wear for the first month to help with the swelling. Often times, patients will wear their garment on and off up to 4 months following surgery. The swelling will take several months to completely taper off and it can feel good to have the extra support.
What can I expect as a result of liposuction surgery?
Just as every person’s body contour is unique, results of your liposuction procedure will also vary. It is important to discuss all of your concerns and goals with Dr. Brou. During your consultation, Dr. Brou will advise you of likely outcomes for your appearance.
It may take weeks or months for post-liposuction swelling to completely subside. As swelling dissipates, your new body contours will begin to appear and develop. It is important to maintain a healthy diet and to exercise after fully healed from a liposuction procedure.
Are there any risks associated with liposuction surgery?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure, and therefore risks are always involved as a result of receiving anesthesia as well as the procedure itself. Dr. Brou can help assess your unique health needs and advise you of any concerns to be aware of prior to undergoing surgery. Potential risks associated with liposuction include pain, swelling, irregular contours and loose skin, skin or nerve damage, infection, blood clots, fluid accumulation, scarring, bleeding or asymmetry, although rare.
