Liposuction

Excess deposits of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise can prevent you from having the attractive body contours you desire. Everyone accumulates fat differently, and stubborn fat deposits are unique to each patient. Unwanted fat can affect how slim or toned an area of your body appears, which can impact how confident you feel about your body. Liposuction is a safe and effective form of fat removal designed to restore a more toned and defined body contour.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of liposuction technique will be used for my procedure?

Dr. Doezie uses the super-wet liposuction technique. A tumescent fluid is injected into the fatty layer of tissue. This fluid helps break up fat and makes the removal process easier. The super-wet technique is associated with less bleeding and a speedier recovery.

How long does it take to recover from liposuction?

The length of your liposuction recovery will vary depending on the size and location of your treatment area. You will wear a compression garment for several weeks following your procedure to minimize swelling. Most patients can return to work within one week of their procedure and resume their regular exercise routine after four weeks. It is important to limit strenuous physical activity during your recovery to prevent seroma development.

What risks are associated with liposuction?

While mild complications such a bruising and bleed may occur, more severe risks are generally rare. These risks include:

  • Burns
  • Fluid imbalance
  • Infection
  • Loss of sensitivity
  • Scarring

Will I have extensive scarring following my liposuction procedure?

Small incisions are used to insert the cannula. Great care is taken to place incisions in easily concealable locations. If scarring does develop, it is likely to fade over time.

How much does liposuction cost?

The cost of a liposuction procedure will vary based on the geographical location of the surgery, procedural techniques, and size of the treatment area(s). The highest price does not always indicate the best quality of service. It is important to choose a surgeon who is experienced and highly skilled in the procedure you wish to undergo in order to truly get the most from your investment.

Will my liposuction results be permanent?

Liposuction is designed to permanently eliminate fatty tissue. However, it will not prevent additional fat stores from forming. It is important to maintain a stable weight through diet and exercise to prevent future fat accumulation.
