FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does liposuction cost?
The liposuction varies depending on the technique selected and how many areas are being treated. In your consultation, Dr. Gonzalez will create your personal treatment plan to meet your needs and goals. He will also consider your budget. When your plan is ready, estimated costs will be discussed. To make your surgery easy to afford, Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery takes several payment methods and we will help you find low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical liposuction?
There are several nonsurgical procedures to reduce body fat. Some popular treatments are BodyTite and FaceTite. Although these nonsurgical procedures can help reduce mild to moderate fat pockets, surgical liposuction is best for most people. Liposuction surgery produces more dramatic and consistent results. Ask Dr. Gonzalez about nonsurgical options in your consultation. He can explain the benefits of all your options and help you choose which is best for you.
What about loose skin?
Liposuction surgery only corrects excess fat. For loose skin, Dr. Gonzalez may recommend combining liposuction with a lift surgery. Lipo is often done along with skin tightening surgery, like a tummy tuck, thighplasty, or arm lift, to give you your best results. During your consultation, talk to Dr. Gonzalez about your concerns, like loose skin, so your best treatment plan is created.
Will I have scars?
Since liposuction is an invasive surgery, incisions will be made and sutured. This will cause scars; however, Dr. Gonzalez does his best to reduce their appearance. This starts with making thin incisions in less visible areas or the natural folds of your body. After your surgery, Dr. Gonzalez or a member of his team will teach you how to care for your incisions so they heal properly and fade.
Will my results last?
Before liposuction, it is important to be prepared to maintain your results. Although liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in an area, you can still lose and gain weight. Dr. Gonzalez suggests that you be at or close to a healthy weight prior to liposuction. Afterward, it’s best to remain within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight. Getting pregnant after liposuction will also alter your results; however, another surgery, like a mommy makeover may be done to refresh your body.
