Liposuction is a good procedure for men and women who are at a healthy weight but have pesky areas of fat that have been hard to lose with exercise and diet. Individuals contemplating liposuction should have skin that is taut because liposuction does not address loose or sagging skin. It is also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer for losing weight. Women over the age of 18 can be considered for liposuction. It is ideal for targeted areas that are resistant to weight loss. During the initial consultation, we will convey realistic expectations.
Surgical liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under sedation or general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin and a cannula will be placed in the incision. The cannula is a tube that helps loosen the fat that is being removed. Once the fatty deposits have been suctioned out, the incision will be closed. Depending on the number of areas receiving treatment, your surgery could last 1 – 3 hours. In the dedicated recovery area, your post-op team will help manage any pain and care for your incision until your discharge.
What to Expect
You may need to recover at home from lipo for 1 – 3 weeks depending on the number of areas treated and the size of the treatment area. It is normal to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks. Many patients can return to non-physical work in 3-5 days. Sutures dissolve and do not need to be removed in most cases. What is most important after having lipo surgery is allowing your body time to recover and heal. When you are ready to return to work after your procedure, you need to remember to go slow. To increase your strength, stick to short walks and light workouts, as advised by Dr. David G. Genecov or Dr. Carlos Raul Barceló. Bear in mind you may have experience changes after 6 weeks, but it takes up to 6 months before your new body shape and contour is final.
