What Can I Expect During Liposuction?

Various techniques exist for liposuction, each differing based on the tools employed to extract fat. Here are some of the methods utilized at H/K/B:

Small, discreet incisions—typically less than a quarter-inch—are made, and an anesthetic solution with high concentrations of lidocaine and adrenaline is administered using the advanced tumescent technique. This approach also helps in reducing bleeding.

A device called a cannula is inserted through these incisions. For precise fat removal, power-assisted liposuction is utilized, which involves a mechanized system that moves the cannula in a controlled back-and-forth motion, offering the surgeon enhanced accuracy.

For removing fat from denser regions, ultrasonic-assisted liposuction is preferred. Here, a robust titanium cannula is used to break down the fat with ultrasonic vibrations, which is then suctioned out using power-assisted methods.

When targeting very small fat deposits, syringe liposuction might be employed. This less invasive method involves inserting a syringe connected to a tube. As the syringe is pulled back, it creates suction that simultaneously extracts the fat cells. Recovery from this procedure 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 Huntersville?

The duration of your recovery from liposuction will vary based on the procedure’s scope, but typically, patients are able to resume most of their usual activities within two weeks. Occasionally, drains may be placed to help remove fluids in the initial week following the surgery. While these drains might be somewhat bothersome, they are effective in reducing swelling more quickly.

Post-surgery, it’s common to experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Pain relief medications are available to help alleviate any pain you might encounter. Additionally, you’ll have scheduled follow-up visits with your surgeon to monitor your healing process and ensure everything is progressing well.
