What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction, lipoplasty, or suction-assisted lipectomy is a surgical procedure to remove localized fat deposits from specific body areas. The procedure involves using a thin tube called a cannula, inserted through small incisions in the skin. The cannula is connected to a vacuum device that suctions out excess fat, sculpting and reshaping the body contours. Liposuction is not a weight loss method or an obesity treatment; rather, it is ideal for individuals with stubborn pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise. Common areas treated with liposuction include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, and neck. Liposuction aims to improve body proportions and enhance overall aesthetic appearance, leading to a more contoured and toned physique.

Is Liposuction Right for Me?

Liposuction may be suitable for individuals who struggle with localized areas of excess fat resistant to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates often need help with stubborn fat deposits despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Common areas of concern include the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and chin. Suppose you struggle to achieve your desired body contours due to these stubborn fat pockets. In that case, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Ascentist Plastic Surgery so we can determine if liposuction is the right solution for you. Our expert team will assess your unique needs and goals, providing personalized recommendations to help you achieve your desired sculpted figure.

What to Expect: The Liposuction Procedure

During a liposuction procedure, you can expect to undergo several key steps to achieve the desired results. Typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, we begin the procedure by making small incisions in the targeted areas. A specialized solution containing saline, adrenaline, and local anesthetic is then injected to minimize bleeding and facilitate fat removal.

Next, a thin hollow cannula is inserted through the incisions to break up and suction out the excess fat deposits. We carefully maneuver the cannula to sculpt and contour the treated areas to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome. The duration of the procedure depends on the extent of fat removal and the number of areas being treated but can range from one to several hours.

Liposuction Recovery

Patients can expect some downtime after their liposuction as their bodies heal and adjust. Swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort are common in the treated areas, but these symptoms typically subside within a few weeks. Patients are advised to wear compression garments to help reduce swelling and support the newly contoured areas during the initial recovery period. While light activities can usually be resumed within a few days, strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks to allow for proper healing. It's essential to diligently follow the postoperative instructions we provide and attend follow-up appointments to monitor progress and address any concerns that arise as you heal. Over time, as swelling diminishes, patients will notice gradual improvements in their body contours, leading to a more sculpted and toned appearance.
