Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

Generally, liposuction offers substantial results to candidates who are close to their ideal body weight. It is not a weight-loss procedure but rather a treatment that helps transform bulging, fatty areas into more attractive, sculpted contours.

There is a limit to the amount of fat liposuction can remove safely.

Additionally, patients should have good skin elasticity; otherwise, an additional skin tightening treatment may be required to correct sagging skin. A good candidate for liposuction should also be in good overall health and have realistic expectations of the surgery’s outcome.

A consultation with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon can help you determine if the procedure is right for you.

How Is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia. A small (barely visible) incision is made in the targeted area, and a device called a cannula is inserted into the incision to suction out the fat. The entire procedure may take several hours, depending on the amount of fat being removed and the number of treatment areas.

With the advancement in technology, there are newer, safer techniques for liposuction. For instance, tumescent liposuction and laser liposuction are modern techniques that are safer, more effective, and involve less recovery than older, more traditional liposuction techniques.

What Is My Liposuction Recovery Like?

Liposuction recovery is relatively quick, with most patients returning to sedentary jobs within a few days. How quickly someone recovers will depend on the type of liposuction surgery performed and the extent of the procedure.You will be expected to wear a compression garment during recovery. Mild to moderate swelling, bruising, and pain are expected, but this will eventually subside. Pain medication will be administered to help minimize any post-operative discomfort. It is important to follow all instructions for aftercare as provided by Dr. Gonzalez. This will help ensure optimal healing and satisfactory results.

What Results Can I Expect From Liposuction?

Patients will notice an enhanced body contour that progressively improves as swelling and bruising subsides. Liposuction results are intended to be permanent as long as the patient maintains a healthy and active lifestyle.

Gaining significant weight after the treatment will impact your liposuction results. Therefore, patients are advised to exercise regularly, eat a balanced diet, and maintain a stable weight after the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction

How much does liposuction cost?

The cost of your liposuction treatment will vary depending on the number of treatment areas and the size of those areas. Additional cost factors will include anesthesia, facility, and surgeon fees, and any combination procedures being performed simultaneously.

Dr. Gonzalez and his team will provide you with an accurate cost estimate during your consultation.

How does liposuction differ from traditional weight loss?

While liposuction sculpts and enhances contours, it cannot remove or significantly tighten sagging or loose skin. If you have previously lost a significant amount of weight, you may require skin removal surgery, such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), thigh lift (thighplasty), or arm lift (brachioplasty).

Will I need to combine my liposuction with another surgery?

While liposuction sculpts and enhances contours, it cannot remove or significantly tighten sagging or loose skin. If you have previously lost a significant amount of weight, you may require skin removal surgery, such as a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), thigh lift (thighplasty), or arm lift (brachioplasty)
