No matter how hard you try, these trouble areas are often resistant to correction through diet and exercise. Stubborn fat may be preventing you from having the slim and attractive figure you desire. Liposuction is designed to remove excess pockets of fat from various areas of the body to restore a more toned, slender appearance.
Excess fat accumulations may be contributing to a flabby, unfit bodily appearance. Eliminating fat helps restore a slimmer silhouette that allows you to feel more comfortable with your appearance.
Fat deposits may be obscuring the attractive contours of your body. Fat removal with liposuction can help highlight specific contours for a more appealing aesthetic.
Localized fat can cause you to appear soft and untoned. Removing excess fat can help you achieve a firm and fit appearance, boosting your confidence and satisfaction with your appearance.
Ideal liposuction candidates are of average weight and desire permanent improvement. You should be in good health and have realistic expectations of the results that can be achieved. Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. However, Dr. Henry can implement advanced techniques to provide heavier patients with pleasing results.
Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort and safety.
You will likely experience bruising and swelling that lasts two to three weeks. During this time, you should limit strenuous physical activity. Most patients return to work within one to two weeks depending on the type of labor involved in their job. Most major swelling should begin to subside after four to six weeks. Between two and three months after surgery, your final body contouring results should begin to take shape.
Anesthesia prevents you from feeling any pain during your procedure. You might experience discomfort and soreness during your recovery period. Oral medication will be prescribed to control any associated pain.
Dr. Henry takes great care to place all incisions in easily concealable locations. However, some patients do develop mild scarring. This is likely to fade over time, and most patients feel it doesn’t impact the quality of their results.
It is suggested that all patients wear a compression garment following their liposuction procedure. Compression garments help minimize swelling, facilitate in healing, and ensure better results. Most patients wear their compression garment for three to four weeks following their procedure.
Liposuction is often performed in combination with other procedures to help provide enhanced results. It is most commonly combined with tummy tuck, buttock lift, thigh lift, breast lift, or breast reduction surgery. Combining procedures not only provides better results but also saves you time and money.
