IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR LIPOSUCTION
Liposuction is a good treatment for those at an ideal weight but has pesky areas of fat that have been hard to lose with a healthy diet and exercise. Women and men contemplating liposuction should have taut skin because liposuction is not a treatment for loose or sagging skin.
Moreover, it's important to realize that liposuction is not an answer to weight loss nor a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise. Females undergoing liposuction should be past pregnancies as this may compromise the results. During your consultation for surgery, Dr. Z will set realistic expectations.
LIPOSUCTION SURGICAL TECHNIQUE
Surgical liposuction is completed in an outpatient setting with the patient under general anesthesia. A punch-hole incision is placed through the skin to insert a cannula. The cannula is a tube that makes it easier to work the loose fatty tissue and remove it. After the chosen amounts of fat have been suctioned out, Dr. Z will seal the small incision.
Your procedure may take several hours, depending on the number of sections receiving the treatment. In the separate area for recovery, your post-op team will assist you with managing any pain and look after your treated areas until you are discharged.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN LIPOSUCTION
You may need to recover at home from lipo for several weeks based on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat removed. It's typical to have bruising and swelling for one or two weeks, and you should have stitches taken out 7 – 10 days after surgery. The most important thing to do following your lipo surgery is give your body time to recover and rest. When you are ready to go back to your job after your surgery, you need to remember to go slow.
To increase your strength and stamina, try short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Z. Remember, you may notice some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 6 – 10 months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
LIPOSUCTION FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does liposuction cost?
The American Society of Cosmetic Surgeons estimates that the average cost of liposuction is $3,637, according to their 2020 statistics. However, the cost of liposuction still varies depending on the technique selected and how many areas are being treated. Dr. Z will create your custom treatment plan to meet your needs and goals in your consultation. He will also consider your budget.
When your plan is ready, estimated costs will be discussed. To make your surgery easy to afford, Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas takes several payment methods, and we will help you find low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical liposuction?
There are several nonsurgical procedures to reduce body fat. Although this nonsurgical procedure can help reduce mild to moderate fat pockets, surgical liposuction is best for most people. Liposuction surgery produces more dramatic and consistent results. Ask Dr. Z about nonsurgical lipo in your consultation. He can explain the benefits of all your options and help you choose which is best for you.
What about cellulite and loose skin?
Liposuction surgery only corrects excess fat. For loose skin, Dr. Z may recommend combining liposuction with other cosmetic surgeries such as a tummy tuck, breast reduction, or facelift. To correct cellulite, Dr. Z may suggest NuEra nonsurgical cellulite treatment. During your consultation, talk to Dr. Z about your concerns, like cellulite and loose skin, so your best treatment plan is created.
Will I have scars?
Since liposuction is an invasive surgery, incisions will be made and sutured. This will create scars; however, Dr. Z does his best to reduce their appearance. This starts with making small incisions in less visible areas or the natural folds of your body. Dr. Z also performs the latest liposuction procedures that significantly reduce recovery time and the appearance of scars, including Tumescent and Hi-Definition Liposuction. After your surgery, Dr. Z or a member of his team will explain how to care for your incisions, so they heal properly and fade.
Will my results last?
Before liposuction, it is important to be prepared to maintain your results. Although liposuction reduces the amount of fat cells in an area, you can still lose and gain weight. Dr. Z suggests that you be at or close to a healthy weight before liposuction. You may be asked to wear compression garments to minimize swelling and bruising in the treatment areas following your liposuction surgery.
Afterward, it's best to remain within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle for the results to last. Getting pregnant after liposuction will also impact your results. However, another surgery like a mommy makeover may be done to refresh your body.
