What Can I Expect During Liposuction in Charleston, SC?

Numerous liposuction techniques are available, each tailored to the specific tools used for fat extraction. Here are some of the methods employed at H/K/B:

We select small, hidden spots for incisions — under a quarter of an inch — into which we inject a solution containing significant amounts of lidocaine and adrenaline. This innovative tumescent technique not only anesthetizes but also minimizes bleeding.

We then insert a slender instrument known as a cannula through these incisions. Utilizing a power-assisted liposuction machine, the cannula is maneuvered with high precision and control by the surgeon, allowing for effective fat removal.

For tougher, denser fat deposits, we might opt for ultrasonic-assisted liposuction. This method involves a sturdy titanium cannula that uses ultrasonic waves to break down the fat, which is subsequently suctioned out using the power-assisted approach.

For smaller, more precise areas, syringe liposuction is an option. This minimally invasive procedure involves inserting a syringe attached to a tube, creating suction that extracts fat cells as the syringe is pulled back. This method typically allows for rapid recovery and 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 Mount Pleasant, SC?

The duration of your recovery will be influenced by the scale of your procedure, yet many patients find they can engage in their usual activities within about two weeks. Occasionally, drains may be necessary to facilitate fluid removal during the first week post-procedure. While these drains can be inconvenient, they help accelerate the reduction of swelling.

Following liposuction, it’s typical to experience some bruising, swelling, and pain. Pain relief medications are available to alleviate any discomfort you might encounter. Additionally, you will have follow-up visits with your surgeon to confirm that your recovery is progressing smoothly.
