Liposuction Q&A

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that physically removes fat cells from your body. There are several different approaches your surgeon can take, including a tumescent technique or a super-wet technique, both of which use a solution of saline and local anesthetic to ease the process.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is also an option and uses sound waves to help blast apart fat cells before using suction to remove them from your body. Liposuction requires several small incisions to gain access to the underlying tissue.

Your surgeon guides slim instruments to the area of focus, then removes undesired fat using a precise method and carefully controlled suction. A degree of swelling, discomfort, and bruising is to be expected following liposuction, but your body adjusts quickly, and you’ll soon begin to enjoy the streamlined results of your treatment.

If you’re searching for a less invasive body sculpting process, options like CoolSculpting®, Vanquish®, UltraShape®, Kybella®, and LipoSonix® might be a good fit for your needs. Just ask your specialist for more information during your consultation.

What Are Some Treatment Areas That Are Well Suited for Liposuction?

Liposuction is a versatile treatment that delivers impressive results across many areas of the body. Some of the more popular treatment areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Upper arms
  • Upper thighs
  • Beneath the chin

Liposuction is also a great way to reduce abnormal breast tissue development in men (gynecomastia). You can choose to treat just one area or multiple areas of concern during your visit.

How Long Do Liposuction Results Last?

Once liposuction removes targeted fat cells, they are gone forever. They won’t regenerate, but it’s important to understand that your remaining fat cells can still expand and contract normally.

That means you can alter your liposuction results if you gain a significant amount of weight after treatment. That’s why liposuction is best suited for men and women who’ve reached and can maintain a healthy, stable weight.

For good candidates, liposuction delivers permanent results. You might choose to add skin tightening treatments to help create a smooth, firm appearance in the treatment areas. VelaShape® is a great way to address cellulite in or near your liposuction treatment area.
