A large number of our patients schedule a consultation with Dr. Erella because they are struggling with areas of stubborn fatty deposits. Even when you are near your ideal weight, these difficult areas like muffin top and love handles do not allow you to enjoy your body. When these deposits do not give in to diet or exercise, it is time to consider an effective body contouring procedure like Liposuction.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is an invasive procedure that is commonly opted to remove stubborn deposits from different body areas including the abdomen, chest, neck and upper arms. Dr. Erella also uses liposuction in combination with other procedures that sculpt your body like a facelift, tummy tuck or breast reduction. You can also benefit from the latest liposuction techniques offered at Aspira Plastic Surgery like the laser assisted SmartLipo.
Who is a good candidate for liposuction?
You should be near your ideal weight and only have a few fatty deposits to be a good liposuction candidate. You must know that it is not a weight loss procedure and you need to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle to retain your liposuction results. The procedure is also not effective if you want to remove cellulite. If these are your concerns, let Dr. Erella know so that he can recommend a suitable treatment for you. You should also be in good general health and have realistic expectations from the liposuction procedure.
What is the liposuction procedure?
In most cases, your liposuction will be performed under local anesthesia; however, if you are undergoing other procedures in combination, then general anesthesia may be required. Dr. Erella will make short and inconspicuous incisions in the treatment area which will be used to insert a thin cannula. A sweeping motion helps to break up the undesired fat which is then easily suctioned out of your body. Once all the fat is removed, he will use sutures to close your incisions.
What is liposuction recovery like?
We understand that no two patients are alike and hence, they will also recover differently. Additionally, if you had an extensive procedure then your recovery will also be longer. Since it will take some time for your incisions to heal, there may be a downtime of 7 days or more. You must carefully follow all the aftercare instructions given by Dr. Erella, which will also highlight how to take care of your dressing, drains and the compression garment you will be wearing for days to follow. You may also have to take a certain medication for a few days to help with the healing. Any discomfort and swelling will be relieved with medication and compression garment. It is important to avoid any strenuous activities for a few days following your procedure to ensure there is no undue stress on your incisions.
You can retain your results for a longer period when you follow a healthy diet and active lifestyle. Liposuction will give you a slim and toned appearance that allows you to fit well in clothes and boosts your self-confidence.
