What is Liposuction?

While liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise, it can eliminate fat pockets that do not respond to your workout efforts. Genetics plays a role in where your body tends to store fat. Areas such as the abdomen, flanks, waistline, arms, and thighs are common trouble spots. Dr. Said uses a wand connected to gentle suction to remove the fat from unwanted areas on your body. Afterward, you can have slim, shapely contours where once there was extra fat.

The Liposuction Procedure

Ensure to follow all pre-operative instructions. On the day of your procedure, Dr. Said will go over any last-minute questions you may have. General anesthesia, local anesthesia, or conscious sedation may be used.

Once you are comfortably sedated, Dr. Said makes a tiny incision. A local anesthetic is administered to expand the fat tissue, block pain, and minimize bleeding. Excess fat is gently removed with low-pressure suction. This process takes between one to three hours. The duration of your procedure depends on the amount of fat that is removed. The incisions are neatly closed. They are hidden in strategic locations and hardly visible once healed. After the surgery, you will wake in a comfortable recovery room and patients are able to return home the same day.

What to Expect During Liposuction Recovery

Liposuction downtime depends on the extent of your surgery. You may be asked to take several days or weeks off of work. The less extensive the liposuction, the faster the recovery time. You may resume driving when you feel confident that you have a full range of motion. Be advised that you should not drive while taking any prescription pain medications as they can cause drowsiness.

Avoid any heavy lifting during your recovery. It is advised to wait at least six weeks before heading back to the gym. Starting on day one, short walks are recommended to prevent blood clots from forming after surgery. Swelling from liposuction is normal. Much of the swelling subsides in the first two weeks. However, it can take six months for all the swelling to go away. The less fat that is removed, the less swelling you can expect. You may be asked to wear compression garments to control swelling and improve skin tightening. Bruising may occur and takes about two weeks to fade.
