Diet and exercise play a tremendous role in your body shape, but they can’t overcome genetics. That’s when you turn to liposuction to remove areas of fat deposits that diet and exercise fail to budge. This procedure sculpts and contours your body through a gentle suction technique to remove fat cells.
Why consider liposuction? Your body shape may have areas that are out of proportion with the rest of your body, which makes it challenging to find well-fitting clothes. Others turn to liposuction to remove those last stubborn inches to improve their self-confidence. Still others find that that aging creates unwanted fat deposits. The ideal candidate for liposuction is already close to or at a healthy weight, but still need some contouring. While each patient has a personal reason why he or she wants to explore liposuction, the result is the same for everyone — a more beautiful you.
What is the recovery time for liposuction? While every patient is unique, most patients return to work within a few days and resume normal activities in about two weeks.* Soreness and swelling are common after liposuction. Compression garments help decrease swelling and promote faster recovery. Staying hydrated and following a low-sodium diet also aids your recovery.
How long does it take to see liposuction results? It takes about six months for the skin to shrink and contract, so that’s when most patients begin seeing excellent results. Subtle changes can continue for several more months, so you may continue to see improvements in the shape of your body for up to a year after liposuction.*
How should you maintain your body after liposuction? Maintaining a healthy weight is key for long-term liposuction results. I advise my patients to establish and follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain a stable weight.
