Liposuction slims and reshapes the body
Inherited traits can often prevent you from achieving your desired body shape. Even years of exercise may not give you the results you desire. Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures. Liposuction slims and reshapes the body through the surgical process of removing excess fat deposits from various areas of your body. Liposuction surgery can help you if you have trouble reducing fat in certain areas in spite of exercise or weight loss. Following your liposuction procedure, you can expect a slimmer, more defined figure. Your liposuction goals will be discussed realistically with Dr. Talbert and Dr. Bauer. Together you will decide which procedures are best for you to achieve your desired results.
For your safety and comfort, you will be asleep under general anesthesia during your procedure. Liposuction is used to remove fat from the abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, hips, waist, love handles, and knees. The surgeons perform the procedure by inserting a slim, hollow tube, (also known as a cannula), into small incisions near the area(s) to be contoured and shaped. The cannula is then moved through the layers of tissue to remove excess fat. Once the fat and tissue has been removed, your surgeon will suture the incision closed.
Following your liposuction procedure, you will want to move around, increasing your circulation as soon as possible. Your sutures will be removed at approximately 1 week following surgery. Most swelling and bruising should subside in 3-6 weeks. However, it is possible that some swelling may last up to 6 months. You may resume light activities within a few days and full exercise at 4-6 weeks. Compression garments are required to be worn following the surgery for 6 weeks to help reduce swelling, fluid retention, and to shape your new curves.
