Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical method for fat cell removal that targets specific areas of the body for immediate results. This minimally invasive procedure was originally designed to help patients that have reached a healthy weight for their size by reducing stubborn pockets of fat in isolated areas of the body. With advancements in technology, we are able to treat patients with a higher Body Mass Index (BMI) by debulking fat to help jumpstart a healthier lifestyle. Liposuction effectively and immediately removes unwanted fat creating a defined silhouette, long-lasting results, and overall confidence.

Healing time varies by individual, treatment area, and size. Depending on your daily routine and how strenuous your job is, most candidates can return to their normal activities, within reason, as soon as three days, although healing can persist for 3-6 months or longer. Bruising is expected and will fade in several days. Swelling may take longer, persisting from several weeks to even several months. Compression garments are encouraged to be used daily anywhere between 6 weeks to 3 months to reduce these side effects. The recovery process is a journey; patience is highly recommended as your body will have fluctuations in healing. Remember to follow home care instructions and keep up with any post-operative appointments to ensure results.
