Liposuction: Common Questions
Am I a candidate for liposuction?
If you are near your ideal weight and have a problem pocket of fat in a certain area, then liposuction might be the procedure for you. The doctors do not perform liposuction for weight loss or to replace exercise, but to improve body contours and proportion. If your skin is loose or sagging then liposuction would not be the procedure for you.
How much time will I need off work?
The doctors usually recommend one week off work following liposuction surgery.
What will my restrictions be following surgery?
You will be up walking the evening of surgery. You must have a driver to take you home, and someone needs to be with you for the first twenty four hours after surgery. You will need to wear a compression garment for four to six weeks after surgery to help with swelling and bruising.
Will fat collect in those areas again?
With a healthy diet, exercise, and maintenance of your weight, the results should last.
Will I see immediate results?
Because of swelling and bruising, your result will continue to improve for several months following the procedure.
