What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat from different areas of the body through a hollow tube called a cannula. This procedure helps to improve the body's contour and proportion, targeting areas with stubborn fat and allowing the skin to retract, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Fat transfer is also possible to enhance certain features.
Liposuction Procedure at Leva Medical
Our plastic surgeons at Leva Medical employ the latest techniques and equipment in performing liposuction. During the procedure, which can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia, a thin tube is inserted through small incisions to break up and remove fat cells. The targeted areas are then shaped to achieve the desired contour. This can be particularly effective for the upper arms, abdomen, hips, and other specific areas.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is liposuction right for me?
If you maintain a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise but are unable to achieve the shape you desire due to stubborn areas of fat, liposuction may be a suitable option for you. It’s important to consult with one of our experienced surgeons at Leva Medical for a physical exam and assessment. The best candidates are those who have realistic expectations and are committed to maintaining the results through a healthy lifestyle.
What areas of the body can be treated with liposuction?
Liposuction can be used to remove excess fat from various areas of the body including the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and neck. It can also be combined with other procedures such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) for even greater improvement in body contours.
How long is the recovery period?
The recovery period for liposuction can vary based on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Generally, most patients can return to work within a few days and resume normal activity within 2-3 weeks. Swelling is a common side effect but usually subsides over time.
What are the risks involved with liposuction?
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, including complications related to anesthesia, infection, scarring, and changes in skin sensation. At Leva Medical, we take all necessary precautions to minimize risks and ensure the safety of our patients. It is important to follow all post-operative instructions and medications recommended by the surgeon.
