Liposuction 101: What You Need to Know

Liposuction Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that has been changing lives for decades. This procedure aims to provide you with a slimmer, more contoured figure. It does this by using suction to remove any unwanted fat under the skin in different areas of the body. 

Advantages to Liposuction 

Boosts Self-Confidence 

Liposuction can give a boost to your self-confidence so that you can look and feel your best. 

Long-Lasting Results

When paired with a healthy diet and regular exercise, liposuction can give you long-lasting results that you can benefit from for the rest of your life. 

Provides a More Contoured Figure

You are left with a slimmer, more contoured figure by eliminating excess fat deposits in the body. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction? 

Some key factors indicate if you are a good candidate for liposuction.

  • You have isolated fat deposits on the face, body, or neck
  • The fat deposits do not shrink at all, even with a proper exercise and diet
  • You are within 20% of your ideal body weight 
  • You are seeking a way to achieve a slimmer, more defined body that has less body fat
  • You are in good general health and not on blood thinners

What Is the Recovery Time? 

Bruising is usually not prominent and often is minimal. Swelling and some bruising are typical for the weeks following your surgery. These subside gradually over the next few weeks, and you should be able to return to work (non-strenuous) within three days of your procedure. 

Physical activity should be kept to a minimum for the first week following your procedure. After the first week, your activity level can gradually increase for the next five weeks.
