9+ Things You Should Know About Liposuction


Body with marked zones for liposuctionLiposuction has been a very popular procedure for many years. If you’ve been thinking about having liposuction, you probably have some questions – read on for 9+ things you should know about lipo!

What is liposuction and how can it benefit you?

Liposuction is a safe and effective way to get rid of excess fat:

1. Liposuction removes those stubborn bits of fat that just won’t go away no matter how much you diet or exercise. It not only gets rid of fat – it also allows the doctor to give your body contours in all the right places.

2. It can be performed on almost any part of the body, including, of course, the stomach, the hips, the buttocks, and the thighs, but also the upper arms, the neck, and the calves.

3. Liposuction has come a long way since it was first used. Nowadays, there are many different techniques to choose from for liposuction, including SmartLipo, LASER Lipo, Ultrasonic Liposuction, and the Whisperator. Your doctor will help you decide which method is right for you.

4. Liposuction can be done in as little as one session, although it may take several sessions depending on your overall health.

5. Liposuction is not a replacement for diet and exercise! You should strive for a healthy lifestyle before and after the procedure.

6. You should be in good overall health before liposuction.

7. After the procedure you can expect some swelling and bruising. Most patients find relief with an over-the-counter pain medication.

8. It may take a few weeks to really notice the effects of liposuction.

9. If you’ve only had limited liposuction, your recovery should not even affect your daily life. However, if you’ve had more extensive lipo, it is best to plan on missing work for 5 to 10 days after the procedure, and you should not do anything strenuous for 48 hours afterward.

Liposuction is popular for a reason – it is a quick, safe, and effective way to get rid of fat that just won’t go away. Call the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, for a liposuction consultation. Call (908) 879-2222 for an appointment today!
