Liposuction


If stubborn fat that can’t be eliminated through diet and exercise is preventing you from achieving the body contours you desire, liposuction may be the ideal procedure for you. Dr. Aaronson uses liposuction to carefully sculpt firmer and more toned body contours to restore a natural, balanced physique.

What Areas Can Liposuction Improve?

Your Liposuction

Consultation

Your consultation plays an important role in the liposuction process. Dr. Aaronson will evaluate the extent and areas of your fat accumulation to determine the best treatment plan for you. You will discuss your desires, and it may be helpful to bring in pictures of your ideal body shape. Together, you and Dr. Aaronson will decide on a technique that best suits your needs and natural body contours. During this time, you will also provide your medical history to ensure that you are healthy enough and a good candidate for liposuction.

Technique

  • Small incisions are created in the treatment site.
  • A tumescent fluid is injected to help numb the surrounding area and help minimize fluid loss.
  • A cannula is inserted, and a gentle back and forth motion further helps loosen fat.
  • Vacuum suction removes the unwanted fatty tissue.
  • Dr. Aaronson carefully sculpts the treatment area to create the best definition and a natural appearance.

Combining Procedures

Liposuction as a standalone procedure won’t achieve the best results in patients who have poor skin elasticity nor those who have begun to experience skin sagging. Combining liposuction with abdominal contouring procedures, like a tummy tuck, will ensure that you achieve firmer, more natural results. A combination of procedures can also help you achieve results that last longer and appear more complete.

Concerns

You will experience bruising and swelling following your surgery. A specialty compression garment should be worn throughout your recovery to ensure the best results possible. Most patients return to work within a week of their procedure and can resume regular physical activity after three weeks. Most significant swelling begins to subside after five weeks.
Most incisions are placed in easily concealable locations. Most scarring will fade over time.
The cost of your liposuction will vary depending on a number of factors. Techniques, the extent of correction, surgical fees, and anesthesia fees will affect the final cost of your procedure. While cost can be an important factor when choosing a surgeon, it shouldn’t be the only factor. Choosing a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon is necessary for achieving natural, beautiful results.
There may be some initial postoperative discomfort. This can be controlled using a prescribed oral pain medication. For most patients, this initial pain subsides within several days of surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ideal candidates for liposuction are in good health and have realistic expectations about their results. Liposuction should only be performed as a standalone procedure in patients with good skin elasticity. Liposuction is not a weight loss treatment and should only be performed if you are near your goal weight.
We perform liposuction surgery with the patient under general anesthesia to ensure comfort and safety.
Because liposuction is a surgical procedure, it is important that patients prepare themselves two weeks before undergoing their surgery. This involves discontinuing the use of cigarettes, alcohol, and certain medications or supplements. Also, it is crucial to have a recovery plan; have someone ready to care for you after your procedure, and pick up all medications beforehand.
Liposuction can help you shed inches of unwanted fat from your frame. However, it cannot prevent new deposits of fat from forming. To maintain your results, a healthy lifestyle with a proper diet is necessary.
