Liposuction Procedure Steps

The entire process of liposuction may seem a bit overwhelming to most. After all, any surgical procedure can be scary and daunting. However, we are happy to walk through each step with you.

Step 1: Anesthesia- To make you as comfortable as possible, our licensed and experienced surgical team will administer medications such as local anesthetic, sedation, and general anesthesia.

Step 2: Incisions- The surgeon will first inject pain medication and saline solution to reduce pain and swelling. Then, your doctor will make small incisions in the treatment area or areas. A small tube is placed through the incisions and moved in a forward and backward manner. The tube sucks the unwanted fat out of your body.

Step 3: Results- Right after surgery, you will have some pain, swelling, and water retention in the areas that were treated. After a few weeks, you should begin to see the results of your liposuction surgery.

After Liposuction Surgery

After the surgery, you’ll need a friend or advocate who can help you get home safely and prepare for recovery. This is someone who understands the dietary restrictions, what strenuous activity you cannot take on, and the extent to which you need rest and medication. We stress that you have someone with your best interest in mind after the surgery.

Lipo Surgery Limitation

While liposuction can provide impressive results, there are limitations. Lipo surgery should never be a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. If you are overweight or obese, lipo surgery should not be a primary weight loss method. Additionally, liposuction cannot improve the look of cellulite. If you would like advice on how to minimize the appearance of cellulite, speak with your plastic surgeon for other options.

Liposuction Cost

The cost of liposuction can vary greatly from one patient to another. The price of the procedure depends on several factors, including…

  • The size and location of the area to be treated
  • The surgeon performing the surgery
  • The medical facility used
  • The medications that will be used prior, during, and after surgery
  • Medical tests before surgery
  • Compression garment costs

It is important to note that insurance companies most likely will not cover liposuction. However, many surgeon offices have financing options available that can make liposuction within reach. If you have questions regarding the costs of liposuction, contact our office at 972-298-6641.

Liposuction Risk & Safety

Every surgical procedure comes with some level of risk. The risks posed by liposuction for a healthy individual are low. However, it is important for you to balance the risks with the benefits you would receive from undergoing liposuction. Some of the risks include…

  • Anesthetic reactions
  • Changes in skin sensation
  • Irregular skin pigmentation
  • Infection
  • Persistent swelling
  • Numbness or pain in the area

The majority of people who undergo liposuction recover without any complications. However, if you have concerns or questions regarding the safety or risks of liposuction, don’t hesitate to ask. We are happy to share the methods and safety precautions we take to minimize risks.

Liposuction Surgery Side Effect

Are you considering liposuction surgery? If so, you’re probably curious about the side effects of this procedure. Before undergoing any surgery, you should understand its full effects. After a liposuction, you can expect to experience some slight swelling and bruising; this is normal. During the first week of your recovery, you may also experience some pain and discomfort. This usually fades by the second week. Lastly, you may notice some pigment changes and slight scarring around the treated area.
