Understanding Liposuction:

Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess fat from specific areas of the body to improve body contours and proportions. It is commonly performed on areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, or neck. Liposuction is not a weight-loss solution but rather a body contouring procedure suitable for individuals who have localized areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Indications for Liposuction:

Liposuction may be recommended for individuals who:

  • Have localized areas of excess fat that do not respond to diet and exercise.
  • Desire improved body contours and a more sculpted appearance.
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.
  • Are in good overall health and have stable body weight.

The Surgical Procedure:

At Neo TrueNorth, liposuction procedures are performed by our skilled plastic surgeons with a focus on patient safety and satisfaction:

  • Consultation: Prior to the procedure, patients undergo a comprehensive consultation with our plastic surgeon to discuss their goals, expectations, and medical history.
  • Anesthesia: Depending on the extent of the procedure and patient preference, liposuction may be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.
  • Incision: Small incisions are made in the target area(s) through which a thin tube called a cannula is inserted.
  • Fat Removal: The cannula is used to loosen excess fat deposits, which are then suctioned out of the body using a vacuum device or syringe.
  • Sculpting: The plastic surgeon carefully contours the treated areas to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome.
  • Closure: Once the fat removal is complete, the incisions are closed with sutures or surgical tape, and a compression garment may be applied to the treated area to minimize swelling and support the healing process.

Postoperative Care:

Following liposuction surgery, patients receive comprehensive postoperative care instructions:

  • Compression Garment: Patients are instructed to wear a compression garment continuously for several weeks to reduce swelling and promote skin retraction.
  • Pain Management: Pain medication may be prescribed to manage postoperative discomfort.
  • Activity Restrictions: Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for a certain period to facilitate healing.
  • Follow-Up: Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor healing progress, assess results, and address any concerns or complications.
