What Can I Expect During Liposuction?

There are numerous liposuction techniques available, each differentiated by the types of tools used to extract fat. Here’s an overview of some methods used at H/K/B:

Small, carefully selected sites are used for tiny incisions — typically less than a quarter-inch — where an anesthetic mixture containing high concentrations of diluted lidocaine and adrenaline is injected using the advanced tumescent technique. This solution helps substantially reduce bleeding.

We then insert a narrow device known as a cannula through these incisions. It’s attached to a motorized system called power-assisted liposuction, which facilitates the back-and-forth motion of the cannula, providing the surgeon with precise control.

For extracting fat from thicker areas, ultrasonic-assisted liposuction is often applied. This involves using a sturdy titanium cannula that emits ultrasonic waves to liquefy the fat, which is then evacuated using power-assisted methods.

When dealing with very small fat deposits, syringe liposuction may be chosen. This technique is minimally invasive; the surgeon uses a syringe attached to a tube, and as the syringe is retracted, it generates a vacuum that extracts the fat cells simultaneously. This method typically allows for quick recovery and minimal bleeding.

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 a Liposuction procedure in Knoxville?

The duration of your recovery will vary depending on the complexity of your procedure, but typically, you should be able to engage in everyday activities within two weeks. Drains might be employed to help manage fluid during the initial week post-surgery. While these drains can be cumbersome, they are effective in reducing swelling more rapidly.

After your liposuction, it is common to experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You will be able to manage any pain with medication prescribed by your doctor. Moreover, you’ll attend several follow-up meetings with your surgeon to check on your recovery and ensure proper healing.
