The abdomen, hips, buttocks, and even the area beneath your chin are all examples of these stubborn sections.
What Areas Can Liposuction Address?
Traditional liposuction is performed under general anesthesia. Small incisions will be made wherever the liposuction is being performed. These incisions are tiny and usually heal on their own without sutures. A small tube is inserted into the area to suction out the excess fat. Since you will be completely sedated, you will feel no pain or discomfort during your procedure.
High-definition liposuction is very similar to traditional liposuction and uses power sculpt technology. The only difference is that high-definition liposuction focuses on highlighting muscle groups and contours throughout the body to produce a more fit appearance. Generally, high-definition liposuction is only performed on patients who are active and have developed muscle beneath stubborn fatty areas. This procedure will also be performed under general anesthesia.
Many patients maximize the benefit of their liposuction procedure by combining it with other procedures like a tummy tuck or breast lift. By addressing skin laxity alongside extra body fat, stark improvements in body shape and tone can be achieved. While more extensive procedures require more extensive recoveries, most patients feel as though the results far outweigh the cost.
After your liposuction procedure, a compression garment will be placed on the treated area to protect your new contours and minimize swelling.
Swelling and bruising will occur but should resolve after a few weeks. You will be asked to avoid all strenuous activities for at least six weeks unless instructed otherwise by Dr. Henry. You should be able to return to work three weeks after your procedure.
You can expect a more shapely and slim figure following your liposuction procedure. Results are generally long lasting as long as you maintain a proper exercise routine and healthy diet.
Dr. Henry makes sure to place incisions in inconspicuous locations on the treated area so they can be easily hidden underneath clothing. It is important to keep your scars away from the sun. Any scars that form will likely fade over time.
