What Can I Expect During Liposuction?

A variety of techniques exist for liposuction, each distinguished by the specific instruments used for fat removal. Here are several approaches utilized at H/K/B:

Small, hidden incisions — typically less than one quarter of an inch — are made, and an anesthetic solution rich in diluted lidocaine and adrenaline is administered using the state-of-the-art tumescent technique. This also helps significantly reduce bleeding.

Into these incisions, a tube known as a cannula is inserted. This is followed by the use of a mechanized, motorized method called power-assisted liposuction, which enables the cannula to oscillate, giving the surgeon enhanced precision and control.

For more fibrous areas, ultrasonic-assisted liposuction is the preferred method. This technique involves using a sturdy titanium cannula to break down fat with ultrasonic waves, after which the melted fat is extracted via power-assisted methods.

When smaller areas need treatment, syringe liposuction may be employed. This less invasive approach involves inserting a syringe connected to a tube into the fat deposit; pulling back the syringe creates a vacuum that draws out the fat cells simultaneously. Recovery from this method is typically quick with minimal blood loss.

What Can Liposuction Do for Me?

While surgical fat removal is not a weight loss procedure or a cure for obesity, it can result in a fairly substantial amount of weight loss. The result is a slimmer, smoother contour on your body without that stubborn fat. Our patients have shared with us that they have reduced by four to eight sizes or even more!

Areas that are commonly treated include the neck, chest area in men, arms, abdomen/tummy, love handles, back, buttocks, thighs, knees, and calves. Tumescent liposuction of the entire abdomen and back – a circumferential treatment of the trunk – can offer a fantastic improvement of the shape and contour of your body.

How Long Does It Take to Recover From Liposuction in Chapel Hill, NC?

The recovery time from your procedure will vary depending on its complexity, but generally, patients are able to resume their regular activities within two weeks. Occasionally, drains might be placed to help with fluid removal during the first week post-operation. These drains are effective in reducing swelling quickly.

Post-procedure, it’s common to experience bruising, swelling, and pain. However, pain relievers are available to help manage any discomfort. Additionally, you’ll have scheduled follow-up visits with your surgeon to monitor your healing process and ensure everything is on track.
