Liposuction Information

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure to remove unwanted fat from specific areas of the body to create a better overall shape.

Liposuction, also known as “lipo,” involves the removal of unwanted fat either through surgery or laser which helps shape specific areas of the body.

Patients create a better body contour through specifically targeted areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, cheeks, chin, hips, knees, neck, thighs, and upper arms.

Liposuction, or lipo, when combined with other procedures, like a tummy tuck, can refine a more detailed body contour. It can be performed either by local or general anesthesia or even without anesthesia if laser lipo is the chosen procedure.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

It is important to take into account your overall health when determining any cosmetic surgery.  The amount of fat that needs to be removed and the opinion of the surgeon during the consultation should help you better define what would work best to reach your health and wellness goals. Dr. Lee specializes in laying out a complete blueprint for your body and health needs.

What is the best age for liposuction?

There is no specific age to have a liposuction procedure. The patient would want to be in generally good health. Blood pressure, age and the amount of fat needed to be removed will all be taken into consideration.

Liposuction is not recommended for children since it is recommended to have lipo once your body has fully developed, around 18-20. There is no age limit for elderly people if they are in generally good health.

Liposuction can be performed for both men and women who want to improve the shape of their body by removing the fat stored in unwanted areas. Good candidates are mainly those who are close to their adequate weight.

Is liposuction safe?

Any surgical procedure implies some risks, but the risk factor should be carefully explained by a professional cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Lee will go over a complete evaluation with you before suggesting the procedure that would work best to reach your goals. Safety is one of the main goals of our medical staff. We have excellent results and great feedback on all of our cosmetic surgery procedures.

How effective is liposuction in achieving my ideal body shape?

Results differ from one patient to the other, but most patients can see results after the first week.  Our cosmetic surgeon will set up a suggested plan of health to help maintain your ideal shape and get on the road to a quick recovery.

Liposuction treats the removal of fat cells, however, if the patient does not adopt good eating habits, he/she is likely to gain weight in other areas that were not treated during the procedure. Keep in mind that liposuction is not a method to lose weight, but a method to remove fat. Some weight will automatically be lost from the removal of fat, but proper health habits will help maintain weight after a lipo procedure.

When can I resume my everyday activities after liposuction?

Patients can often return home a few hours after a liposuction procedure. It is suggested to take it easy the first few days and the cosmetic surgeon will give you specific actions to take, like sleeping sitting up and drinking plenty of fluids.

To allow your body completely heal, you should not exercise strenuously between 2-4 weeks after surgery. It is recommended to talk to your doctor about when you can start working out again.
