Every surgery begins with a consultation with one of the clinic’s board-certified plastic surgeons. It’s important to let them know what your expectations are. This will help them understand what procedure may be right for you. Some people may feel nervous about taking the first steps, but the doctors and staff want you to look and feel your best. The consultation is the first step to your new body!
Before the procedure, the preparation is minimal. After the consultation, you should be able to schedule your procedure. You’ll need to be in good health and meet the requirements listed above. The procedure itself only takes one to five hours, depending on the patient and the amount of fat removed. You’ll undergo local or general anesthesia as it is a surgery, but you should be able to go home within 24 hours. You will need someone to drive you home that day and be sure to rest as much as possible.
For the procedure, your doctor will use a tube-like instrument and a vacuum to remove the fatty deposits. There are three types of liposuction, and you and the surgeon will decide which is right for you at the consultation.
Tumescent uses large volumes of local anesthesia. It is injected into the fat and causes the area to become swollen and firm. This type can address areas disproportionate to the rest of your body.
Ultrasound uses a unique tool that emits high-energy sound waves to create vibrations. With the help of a high-intensity, external ultrasound, the fat cells become easier to suction out. This allows for more fat cells to be targeted during the procedure.
Laser Assisted is a minimally invasive option that destroys fat cells through laser energy. It is useful in treating small pockets of fat associated with small amounts of loose skin. This is typical in areas such as the neck.
The recovery time varies from patient to patient. It also depends on what type of liposuction procedure you get. You will initially experience some swelling and bruising. This is normal and should clear up within a week to ten days. Most can return to their regular routine anywhere between two to fourteen days. The range is due to the amount of excess fat that was taken out and how many areas on the body had work done.
Below you will find some necessary steps for recovery. However, you should follow what our surgeons tell you directly in case anything varies for you specifically. Every patient is different, so it’s essential to focus on your healing and recovery.
Managing any pain or swelling post-surgery is vital. Some amount of pain is reasonable for the first few days, so taking your medication will ensure that you can relax as your body heals.
You may want to see the results of your procedure, but it can take time to recover fully. Focus on ensuring proper healing and controlling any swelling.
Due to the swelling post-procedure, you’ll need to wear a compression garment and possibly elastic bandages. These will help with swelling and your overall recovery.
You may want to get right back to work or your daily routine. Your body needs rest. Focus on easing back in and giving yourself the necessary time to heal is important for your overall health. Too much too soon can cause complications post-procedure making your recovery time longer.
You may have drains in your wounds for a few days to drain any fluids. You may also need to take antibiotics to prevent infection. Follow the post-operation instructions our surgeons gave you and call our office if you have any questions.
As long as patients maintain their weight, liposuction provides long term results. Your physical appearance will be improved, and your body will appear smoother and more sculpted. Patients often have increased levels of confidence and boosted self-esteem after the procedure.
