Over time, both men and women can acquire fat in various areas of their body due to aging, genetics, and other lifestyle factors. Many patients with stubborn fat that is resistant to a strict diet and exercise routine turn to plastic surgery to help them achieve the results they desire. Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure in which localized deposits of fat are removed to enhance the body with slimmer contours.
What Do You Desire?
Following your liposuction procedure, you will be asked to wear a surgical garment to protect your new contours and minimize swelling. Swelling and bruising will occur but should resolve after a few weeks. Make sure you refrain from all physical activity for at least four weeks or unless instructed otherwise by your surgeon. Dr. Pearce will provide you with more detailed instructions you will need to follow after your liposuction is complete.
You can expect the contours of your body to be noticeably slimmer and more defined after your surgery. The results from your liposuction procedure are intended to last many years, as long as you maintain a stable weight. Your final result may take a few months to reveal itself as the swelling continues to resolve.
Liposuction may leave some minor scars that can be hidden underneath clothing and will most likely fade over time.
The total cost of your liposuction procedure will depend on the number of areas being treated and the amount of fat being removed. Insurance providers do not typically cover the cost of liposuction.
Am I a good candidate for liposuction?
Generally, if you are in good overall health without any pre-existing health conditions, you are a good candidate for liposuction. It is important that you have realistic expectations about the outcome of your results and do not view liposuction as a means to lose weight.
Will liposuction eliminate the appearance of cellulite?
Although liposuction can remove excess fat to provide a smoother appearance, it is not a viable treatment for cellulite.
How long will my procedure take?
Liposuction usually takes between one and two hours depending on the size of the area being treated.
Are there any risks or side effects involved with liposuction?
As with any surgery, there are some risks involved with liposuction. These include anesthesia risks, numbness, damage to deeper structures, deep vein thrombosis, fluid accumulation, infection, irregularities in contour, and loose skin.
