Liposuction is a powerful technique whether performed as a stand alone procedure or in combination with other procedures. One of the most common procedures in the United States, liposuction refers specifically to the removal of fat from undesired areas. While the best body contouring candidates use liposuction to improve stubborn diet and exercise resistant areas, large volume liposuction can dramatically improve both body contour and metabolism, further enhancing attempts to loose further weight. This procedure, like many of the enhancement procedures offered, can result in one’s best body contour not otherwise achievable with diet and exercise alone.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

You’re likely to be a good candidate for a liposuction procedure if:

  • You’re within 30% of your ideal body weight.
  • You have good muscle tone and your skin is elastic and firm.
  • You’re not a smoker or are willing to quit before the surgery.
  • You have an optimistic outlook regarding the procedure.
  • You’re clear about your body contouring goals.

It’s important to note that liposuction is not meant to be a treatment for obesity. It cannot replace the role of exercise and a healthy diet in your weight loss efforts. It also won’t magically make your cellulite or loose skin disappear. It can however, aid in achieving your body goals and supplement your weight loss efforts.

Which Areas of the Body Can Liposuction Address?

Numerous areas that generally don’t respond to exercise and dietary changes can be contoured using liposuction. These include:

  • Abdomen
  • Chest
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Upper Arms
  • Ankles
  • Inner and Outer Thighs
  • Calves
  • Chin
  • Hips
  • Neck

Liposuction Preparation

You may be required to get a medical evaluation or lab testing done prior to the procedure. You may also have to make changes to the medications you’re already taking, especially those that increase chances of bleeding like anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, or herbal supplements. You’ll also have to stop smoking for best results.

What Happens During the Liposuction Procedure?

Liposuction removes undesirable fat from different areas of the body. The specifics of the procedure involved depend on the type of liposuction procedure being conducted. The patient is either administered general or local anesthesia before carrying out the procedure.

A cannula is inserted into the treatment area. A cannula is a thin tube with a sharp end for dislodging stubborn fat cells from the surrounding tissues. Medical suction is used to carry dislodged fat cells out of the body through the tube, reducing the area in volume. After the contouring has been completed, the cannula is removed and the area is dressed.

My experience with Dr. Rodriguez was just perfect. He is very professional, informative and really cares about the safety of his patients. I have done several procedures with Dr. Rodriguez and I have never had any issues with his bedside manners at all. I highly recommend Dr. Rodriguez to everyone including my family.

What Is Recovery Like?

Recovery generally depends on how much fat is removed, how many areas are treated, and where these areas are located. Some bruising and swelling in the treated areas is normal, and these will issues will eventually fade.

Having good skin elasticity will encourage the skin to conform to the body’s new contours. Wearing an elastic garment helps in this process and aids in reduction of swelling.
