Liposuction – also referred to as liposculpture or suction-assisted lipectomy – is performed to remove unwanted fatty deposits in the body, such as the abdomen, hips and flanks, thighs, arms, and under the chin. These areas are often resistant to diet and exercise, and no matter what we do, they won’t go away! Liposuction addresses these areas by removing the unwanted fat through tiny incisions. Liposuction can often be combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or breast surgery.
What To Expect
Liposuction is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, which means you go home the same day as your surgery. After surgery your pain is controlled by prescription pain medication. You will be placed into an elastic tight-fitting garment before you awaken from surgery, which you will keep on until you follow up with Dr. Shore two days after your surgery. You will need to wear this binder for two to three weeks after undergoing the procedure to stimulate skin shrinkage and help reduce swelling.
The effects of liposuction aren’t immediately noticeable. In fact, because of the fluid injected during the procedure, you will initially gain weight and appear more swollen. But don’t worry: it’s water weight from the swelling which will go down over a matter of weeks. It takes time for the results to be fully noticeable, but it is worth the wait!
