Why choose to get Liposuction?

If you want to get rid of excess fat in specific target areas like your hips, chin, or arms, consider liposuction. Over time, due to factors like the aging process, genetics, and lifestyle choices, stubborn excess fat may form in a number of areas. This fat is resistant to diet and exercise, but liposuction can effectively remove it.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure used to remove fat deposits and reshape areas of the body. Liposuction is not recommended for weight loss, but a viable technique for areas where fat deposits won’t disappear.

Best-suited candidates

Liposuction is perfect for those struggling with exercise-resistant fat, ideal candidates should have good skin elasticity and be within 30% of their ideal body weight. It is not recommended for smokers or obese individuals as the risk of complications increases while also prolonging the recovery and healing process.

Liposuction procedure

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure involving small incisions, a cannula is then inserted into the skin to suction out the fat. Techniques like ultrasonic probe or the tumescent technique, which forces extreme amounts of water into the fat before vacuuming it out, making hard fatty deposits easier to remove may be applied.

Healing and recovery

Expect bruising and swelling post-surgery. Compression garments may be required for up to one month. You may be given medication to address post-surgical pain and prevent inflammation.

Depending on your body’s natural healing process, you may be able to go back to work after several days and normal activities can resume after clearance by Dr. Rau. However, strenuous exercises should be avoided for several months to ensure proper healing.

Cost of Liposuction

The cost of your liposuction surgery depends on the extent of work done. The total price may be affected by the type of anesthesia administered, any additional procedures, and other surgical fees.
