What Can I Expect During Liposuction?

Numerous techniques are employed for liposuction, differing primarily in the instruments utilized for fat removal. Here are some methods used at H/K/B:

For the procedure, tiny incisions are made in discreet spots, less than a quarter of an inch long. An anesthetic solution containing diluted quantities of lidocaine and adrenaline is then injected using the advanced tumescent technique, which also helps to reduce bleeding.

Into these incisions, a slender tube known as a cannula is inserted. Power-assisted liposuction, involving a mechanical device, then enables the cannula to move with precision, granting the surgeon excellent control.

In areas where the fat is denser, ultrasonic-assisted liposuction is often the technique of choice. This involves a durable titanium cannula that uses ultrasonic waves to break down the fat, which is subsequently suctioned out with power-assisted devices.

For treating smaller fat deposits, syringe liposuction may be appropriate. This less invasive approach involves inserting a syringe connected to a tube; as the syringe is pulled back, it creates suction that simultaneously extracts the fat cells. This method typically allows for quick 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 SouthPark, NC Liposuction?

The length of your recovery will vary based on how extensive your procedure was, but typically, patients are able to engage in their usual activities within two weeks. Sometimes, drains are placed to help remove fluid during the first week post-surgery. While these drains can be cumbersome, they are effective at reducing swelling quickly.

After liposuction, it is normal to experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Pain relief medication is available to help alleviate any discomfort. Additionally, you will have follow-up visits with your surgeon to monitor your recovery and ensure that your healing is progressing smoothly.
