Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. Liposuction also shapes (contours) these areas. Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring.
We have found that most swelling, scar tissue, and bruising really start to come down at the second week. Patients will typically be able to return to work in 2-3 days and light exercise in 2-3 weeks. Some patients will obtain their maximal results at 3 months and some may see changes for up to a year
The goal of this whole process is to give patients an opportunity to enjoy their life with the best version of themselves. Almost all patients find the surgical change incredibly motivating and go on to live a healthier, happier, more fulfilling life.
