What’s the First Step?
The first step to getting Hi-Def Liposuction & Abdominal Etching in Las Vegas is to contact our office and schedule your consultation with Dr. Costa. During this appointment, Dr. Costa will be able to listen to your aesthetic goals and answer any questions you may have concerning the treatment. He will assess your body and be able to create the perfect treatment plan for you with a realistic timeline for results.
What to Expect on the Day of Hi-Def Liposuction & Abdominal Etching
On the day of your Hi-Def Liposuction & Abdominal Etching procedure, Dr. Costa will make five small incisions near the treatment area, with each incision being about the size of a pencil eraser. Then, a specialized tumescent fluid will be injected into your abdomen to maximize the procedure’s efficiency. Next, a handheld cannula (a thin tube) is inserted through the incisions. The cannula will deliver powerful energy to liquefy the fat cells, limiting damage to the surrounding tissues and making them easier to remove than traditional liposuction. Finally, Dr. Costa will perform some additional liposuction to precisely remove fat around the ab muscles, creating striking abdominal definition.
Hi-Def Liposuction & Abdominal Etching Recovery
After your procedure, you should expect some swelling and mild discomfort, however, it is typically a much quicker and less extensive recovery from traditional liposuction. We highly recommend that you wear compression garments during your recovery to help reduce swelling.
Although it may vary on the level of your treatment, most patients can return to work after about a week, with some restrictions on physical activity. Typically, you should be able to resume exercise about 3-4 weeks following your surgery.
Dr. Costa takes great care in placing the tiny incisions in areas where they can be concealed within the body’s natural creases, so with proper aftercare, scarring is very minimal and should fade over time.
Call our office if you have any questions or concerns. If after hours, please call Dr. Costa on his cell phone.
