Liposuction is a great way to take care of those unwanted fat deposits that diet and exercise just can’t seem to touch! Recovery time is modest compared to a lot of other cosmetic procedures we perform for body contouring.
Liposuction involves removing undesired fat from regions such as your neck, back, bra roll area, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs. Through a few tiny incisions we will insert a thin metal cannula (or tube) that we use to deposit tumescent fluid that contains an anesthetic to help with pain as well as a medication to help prevent bleeding.
Once the tumescent fluid has had a chance to take effect, additional cannulas are placed through these small incisions in your skin, and fat is suctioned out to help improve your body’s contour. At Sound Plastic Surgery we use power assisted liposuction which is very efficient and is state of the art.
This procedure may be performed very safely in our office while you are awake. Small dosages of oral pain and anti-anxiety medications are also used to make you very comfortable during the procedure. You may even choose what music you’d like to listen to!
After the procedure, you will wear a compression garment as well to help with healing and to help with the swelling that you will have. Oral pain medications are usually used for the first few days, but pain is usually not very intense. Most patients are back to work several days after the procedure.
