What is Liposuction?
Liposuction, or “lipo” for short, removes areas of stubborn fat, helping to slim and reshape your body. During surgery, a thin tube, called a cannula, is inserted through small incisions. The cannula is carefully moved around as it breaks up the fat cells and suctions them out. The fat is collected to be disposed of or can be saved and prepared for fat transfer procedures.

Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Your surgeon will examine you to determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction. Before the procedure, you should be at or near your ideal body weight. Additionally, you should have good skin elasticity. Ideal candidates should be in good physical health and must refrain from smoking. It is also important for candidates to have realistic expectations for overall results.
What Can I Expect from Recovery?
Recovery after liposuction typically takes a few weeks. Patients can expect bruising, swelling, and soreness. Medication will be provided to help with the pain. Compression garments are worn to limit fluid retention, aid swelling, and encourage the skin to shrink nicely. Your surgeon will monitor your progress with postoperative appointments, ensuring proper healing and beautiful, natural results.
