Liposuction Ideal Candidates
Fat removal surgery is a terrific treatment for both women and men who are at an ideal weight but have troublesome areas of fat that are difficult to reduce with even the most healthy lifestyle. Those interested in liposuction should have healthy skin because liposuction is not a treatment for stretched-out skin. It's also important to know that liposuction is not a solution for weight loss. At the time of your consult for surgery, Dr. Costa will review with you your goals and make a personalized treatment plan to help you to look your best.
Liposuction Surgical Technique
This treatment is completed in an outpatient setting using general anesthesia. A small knick is made in the skin so a cannula can be inserted. A cannula is a special tool that makes it easier to work loose the fatty tissue that is being vacuumed out. After the fat deposits have been eliminated, Dr. Chris Costa will take the time to go back over each area to ensure that the tissue appears natural and smooth out any irregular or unnatural areas. The small incisions on the skin are then meticulously closed. Based on the amount of sections being treated, your procedure may take several hours. In the separate area for recovery, your post-op nurse will assist you with managing any discomfort and look after your treated areas until you are discharged.
What to Expect with Liposuction
You may need to stay at home for recovery from liposuction surgery for several weeks based on the amount of sections treated and the amount of fat removed. It's typical to have bruising and swelling for one or two weeks after surgery. The most important thing to do following any surgery is to give your body time to heal and recover. When you decide to go back to your job after your surgery, you should remember to minimize stress and strenuous activity. To increase your strength and stamina, try walking and light workouts as recommended by Dr. Costa. Remember, you may notice some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 2 – 3 months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
