Liposuction is an excellent surgical procedure that removes pockets of unwanted fat to create a slimmer, more pleasing physique. This procedure allows for precise and permanent elimination of stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, producing slender body contours. At AesthetiCare, attention to detail and compassionate care in all aspects of the surgical experience are of paramount importance. Our aesthetic surgeons specialize in tumescent liposuction and are committed to delivering beautiful, customized results.
What Can Liposuction Achieve?
Your surgeon will mark the target locations before the procedure begins. Small incisions are created near the treatment areas, through which sterile saline solution is injected. This tumescent fluid makes it easier to remove unwanted fat and helps minimize postoperative bleeding, swelling, and pain. A thin, hollow tube (cannula) is inserted through the incisions to remove localized fat in thin, even layers using a vacuum pump machine.
After your liposuction procedure, some soreness, swelling, and bruising are expected. Patients are advised to wear a special medical compression garment over the treated areas for four weeks to reduce side effects and help the skin conform to your newly formed contours. You may return to work in two to three days and resume your normal exercise routine two weeks after surgery.
The cost of liposuction depends on several factors, including (but not limited to):
- Number of areas being treated
- Geographical location
- The desired extent of correction
- Anesthesia fees
- Operating room fees
Patients should never sacrifice the quality of their procedure when selecting a surgeon. AesthetiCare offers flexible financing options for patients who qualify.
Some discomfort can be expected following liposuction. Postoperative pain can be alleviated with medication as prescribed by your aesthetic surgeon.
