Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the removal of unwanted and excess fat deposits. Patients may choose to remain awake with a local anesthesia or opt for twilight sedation. During the liposuction procedure, surgeons use an FDA-approved medical device known as a “cannula”, which is a tube with a vacuum-like instrument attached to it to “suck” out and remove excess fat deposits. This vacuum-like instrument targets troublesome fat pockets seemingly resistant to exercise and diet. The instrument also allows surgeons to perform precise, customized treatment. Patients may experience slight bruising and should be able to return to a normal routine within one or two days.
Following a liposuction procedure, patients may experience minor pain often compared to the pain felt after a hard workout. This discomfort generally is resolved with over-the-counter pain medications. Patients are fitted with compression sleeves after the surgery in order to reduce swelling. Patients typically wear these sleeves for about two weeks in order to maintain the body’s contour. Results are readily visible immediately following liposuction, but the final contour takes a few weeks to several months to really develop. It is recommended that patients remain active after the procedure in order to speed up the healing process.
