Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

Liposuction, also known as “lipo,” is a surgical procedure designed to slim, reshape, and contour a person’s body. The surgery removes excess fat deposits from a person’s body. Liposuction can be used to reduce fat deposits in the:

  • Upper arms
  • Calves and ankles
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Back
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, neck, and chin
  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Inner knee

Liposuction can be performed alongside other procedures, such as a facelift, or it can be performed alone. The surgery is not a substitute for diet and exercise but can help to rid a person of stubborn fat deposits in the above areas.

What results can I expect from liposuction?

The results from liposuction are made to be long-lasting and provide patients with a stable distribution of fat in the treated area. Once the swelling and fluid retention dissipate, results will be noticeable.

As time goes on and the aging process moves forward, some of the firmness may be lost but the eliminated fat cells do not regenerate. But, if you gain weight in the future, the remaining fat cells in the treated areas can plump up. That’s why it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen after liposuction treatment.

Dr. Patel provides extensive instructions about what to do and what not to do after surgery. Heeding these instructions is key to lasting results.

What does liposuction recovery entail?

NeoSculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center uses Tickle Lipo, a liposuction technique that delivers results without the downtime associated with traditional lipo procedures. Tickle Lipo uses infrasonic vibration to briefly change the way your brain processes pain signals. Some report their sessions feel more like tickling than any form of discomfort.

Only local anesthesia is used, so you’ll remain awake and alert from start to finish. There’s less bruising and swelling due to a special cannula used to remove fat cells. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your body is transformed and how little downtime and discomfort is required to reach those goals.
