What is a Liposuction?

Liposuction can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including abdomen, hips and buttocks.

Who is a Liposuction Candidate?

The best candidates for liposuction are people with normal weight and firm, elastic skin who have pockets of excess fat in certain areas. Although age is not necessarily a consideration; some older patients may not be able to achieve the same results as they would if their youthful years were still intact because this procedure requires sensitive tissues which will eventually lose some degree or tightness over time.

How do I prepare for my Liposuction?

Dr. Chmielewski will evaluate your health, determine where fat deposits lie and assess the condition of your skin. She will explain the methods that are most appropriate for you. Smaller volume liposuction is usually done on an outpatient basis. If a large volume of fat is being removed, you may need to stay at the hospital overnight.

What happens during a Liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure used to remove unwanted fat from the body. Local anesthesia can be provided if only small quantities of it are being removed, but regional or general anesthesias may also be necessary for more extensive procedures that require removing significant amounts of fatty tissue under your skin without causing pain during surgery itself . A cannula will typically come into play here as well; this narrow tube gets pushed through very tiny incisions and then pulled outwards against gravity - breaking up individual cells within those masses until all remnants have been suctioned away.

What is the Liposuction Recovery Process?

After surgery, you will likely experience a little drainage from the incisions. A small tube may be inserted for a few days to prevent fluid buildup and help your skin fit its new contours better by controlling swelling in that area. You'll also need an elastic garment over it as well because of how snugly tight these bands are worn-up top! Stitches should disappear within 1 week or so after removal--but sometimes they linger if too many were used during installation process which is why we recommend removing them early instead. Strenuous activity should be avoided for about a month. Although most of the bruising usually disappears within three weeks, some swelling may remain for six months or more. Your surgeon will schedule follow-up visits to monitor your progress and see if any additional procedures are needed.

What are the Risks of a Liposuction?

There are risks to consider when more than one area of the body is being treated. These include infection, which could lead to delayed healing or fat clots migrating from site-to-site; excessive fluid loss leading in rare cases down stroke (further complications).
Scars from liposuction are small and strategically hidden from view. Imperfections in final appearance, however, are not uncommon. The skin’s surface may be irregular, asymmetric or even “baggy”, especially in older patients. Numbness and pigmentation changes may also occur.
