What Happens During Liposuction?

Most people have pockets of fat that just won’t go away, no matter how much they go to the gym and how much celery they eat instead of chocolate cake. It is a common problem, and that’s one reason why liposuction is such a popular procedure!

What Is Liposuction?

General or local anesthesia is used for a patient undergoing traditional liposuction. A tiny incision is made, and fatty tissue is suctioned out. At Iorio Plastic Surgery, another option is Smartlipo. In this liposuction technique, only local anesthesia is needed. Laser technology is used to help remove fat from areas that are too small for traditional liposuction to reach, and this type of liposuction also helps to tighten and tone skin.

Liposuction can be combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, so that you can achieve the results you want.

What Are the Benefits of Liposuction?

Although liposuction is not the right treatment for you if you have a lot of fat to get rid of, it does wonders on those little bits of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. It can help to tighten and add tone and contour to the stomach, hips, buttocks, thighs, back, calves, ankles, and chin. Another benefit of liposuction is that the results are permanent – just make sure you maintain a healthy lifestyle so that you don’t gain an excessive amount of weight.

What Is Recovery From Liposuction Like?

You may have some bruising, swelling, and discomfort after liposuction, but this can typically be treated successfully with an over-the-counter pain medication. You should plan on resting after the procedure and limiting your movements to speed the healing process. You might also be advised to wear a support garment. Patients who undergo Smartlipo may have less bruising, discomfort, and recovery time needed than patients who opt for traditional liposuction.
