What is liposuction?

Liposuction or lipoplasty is the process of excess fat deposit removal using a cannula. This is often performed as a body shaping procedure for those who have fat pockets that did not respond to diet and exercise. During this fat reduction surgery, tumescent liposuction is used to remove subcutaneous fat for an improved body contour. This surgical procedure is not intended to remove excess skin or to be used as an obesity treatment.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

The best way to know if you are a good candidate for liposuction is to have a liposuction appointment to consult with the doctor. The factors that we typically take into account when working with a patient are their body mass index (BMI) and if the patient, in general, has a healthy figure and lifestyle. This is important because the longevity of the results for liposuction candidates is someone who is able to maintain their weight healthily.

How long is recovery from liposuction?

Length of liposuction recovery depends on how large of a treatment area is being worked on. The size of the treatment area affects how much fluid will need to be drained. Your doctor may decide to place drains to help this process along for the first few days. You may also be instructed to wear a liposuction compressive garment to help with healing and your comfort. This prescribed garment will make you feel more secure and help with drainage.  In general, patients can typically return to work in few days after the procedure as long as your job does not put much strain on your body. After two weeks, it’s important to make sure that you’re moving and encouraging circulation in the body for proper healing. It is important that you wait a minimum of six weeks until returning to strenuous activity.

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

  • Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure that fixes what diet and exercise couldn’t
  • Fat cells are removed from trouble areas permanently
  • The result is a sleeker appearance from the removal of stubborn fat
  • There are some liposuction techniques that provide minimally invasive liposuction
  • Stubborn belly fat can be eliminated with abdominal liposuction

How long will My Results Last?

Liposuction results are technically permanent. However, the results are contingent on the patient’s ability to maintain their weight and live a healthy lifestyle. Weight gain, child birth, and general aging can have an effect on the results. The reason for this is that when the fat cells are taken from one area if you gain weight the body has to find a new place to store fat which might be somewhat unpredictable. For best results, keep your weight stable and you will not have trouble with reversing your results.

Frequently asked questions about Liposuction

Which method of Liposuction is best for me?

During your consultation, one of our doctors at Plastic Surgery of Palm Beach will work with you to find out what technique will best suit your needs.

Can Liposuction treat obesity?

Liposuction or other types of body reshaping are not intended to aid in drastic weight loss. Liposuction is intended to remove fat from fatty areas that have not responded to traditional fat elimination methods.

What can I expect from Liposuction surgery?

In addition, to losing weight in targeted areas, liposuction surgery will sculpt the body where other methods have failed. There will be some downtime associated with the procedure but every patient and procedure are unique and your doctor will discuss all of the preparation and recovery instructions with you prior to your surgery. On the day of surgery, you plan to have someone pick you up from the hospital and help you get settled at home. Resting during the first few days post-procedure will be necessary during the most sensitive period of recovery.

Does Liposuction hurt?

In most cases, patients are put under sedation which prevents patients from feeling any pain during the procedure. After the procedure, you may have some tenderness and soreness in the areas that you had worked on but this can often be improved by wearing elastic compression garments.

Does Liposuction leave scars?

Depending on the contouring technique used, this will affect the size of the cannula. However, cannulas are quite small and only leave small incisions that will fade over time with proper care and protection from the sun.

What is a liposuction cannula?

A liposuction cannula is an instrument used during the procedure to remove unwanted fat using a suctioning motion or technique. Your doctor will insert this into the fatty areas of the body to loosen and remove fat.

What is the difference between liposuction and Liposculpture?

Both liposuction and liposculpture are used to augment the body shape but in different ways. Liposuction eliminates localized fat deposits for the purpose of body enhancement. Liposculpture is a contouring procedure that focuses more on sculpting around the body structures and muscles for a more defined look.

How is Liposuction different from a Tummy Tuck?

While both procedures result in a slim physique, liposuction is intended to aid in body fat removal and a tummy tuck is more catered towards skin removal.

No matter how much I exercise; my muscles still lack definition. Does Liposuction provide more muscle definition?

Fat accumulation can happen in areas that could be well developed underneath. This is especially true for the abdominal area where stubborn layers of fat tend to collect.

Dr Hayn was so kind, caring, and gentle with me. I was so nervous going for the consulation, and for the surgery but he has a way of really making his patients calm especially if they are nervous/embarassed about a condition. He was really funny and made me feel very comfortable with him.
