Liposuction

Liposuction can be ideal for improving contours of the body by removing stubborn fat deposits that are out of proportion with the rest of your figure. Even after efforts to tone through exercise and slim down through a healthy diet, sometimes fat deposits remain frustratingly in place despite overall weight loss. Liposuction can expertly sculpt away unwanted fat, enhancing your shape and accentuating the efforts of your healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Lee B. Daniel is board certified in both general surgery and plastic surgery. He specializes in body contouring with liposuction. Dr. Daniel and his team at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery have helped thousands of women and men to enhance their natural physique with lipo to look and feel their very best.

Before Your Liposuction

Everyone’s body is different, and Dr. Daniel’s expert ability to assess his patients’ proportions and compare their existing anatomy against their goals is essential, and allows him to deliver flattering, natural-looking results. For this reason, Dr. Daniel will schedule a pre-operative consultation with you to review all of your options and determine how to customize your procedure to meet your needs.

During your consultation, Dr. Daniel may recommend several strategies to achieve the best liposuction results possible, such as reaching a healthy weight beforehand which can maximize your contouring. It’s important to note that liposuction isn’t a replacement for proper weight loss through diet and exercise, and will not remove large amounts of fat.

If you notice excess skin in addition to isolated problem spots, body contouring may give you better results than liposuction alone can deliver. It’s very common to include liposuction as part of a tummy tuck, or with a mommy makeover for an optimum outcome. For those patients who are good candidates for a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction, Dr. Daniel may recommend CoolSculpting® instead.

Your Liposuction Procedure

While many people may find success solely through diet and exercise when trying to reshape their body, others have resistant areas of fat that just won’t budge through traditional methods. Common areas for liposuction treatments include:

  • Ankles and calves
  • Neck, cheeks and chin
  • Inner knee
  • Thighs, hips and buttocks
  • Waist and abdomen
  • Back and chest area
  • Upper arms

Dr. Daniel performs tumescent liposuction. In this method, prior to removing fat, a solution of saline and adrenalin is injected into the target area, saturating the fat deposit. This helps loosen fat cells for easier removal. Next, a suction device is inserted through a tiny incision to sculpt the area.

Healing Process for Your Liposuction

Following your liposuction, you can expect bruising and mild swelling in the treated area. An improvement should be noticeable in as soon as 2 to 4 weeks with the final results developing between 3 to 6 months, but you can typically resume activities and even exercise in 2 to 4 weeks.

Liposuction is designed to remove fat deposits from problem spots, enhancing your natural body shape. Your final result should be sleeker and more well-defined, with more visible muscle tone. Most men and women also notice an improvement in their self-confidence as a result of getting lipo.
