Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about liposuction.
Liposuction is most effective for individuals close to their ideal body weight, with localized areas of excess fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. The best way to determine if liposuction is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our plastic surgeon.
Liposuction can be performed on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, back, neck, and more. During your consultation, we will discuss the areas you wish to target and develop a customized treatment plan.
No, liposuction is not a weight-loss method. While it can remove unwanted fat deposits, it is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise. It is best suited for body contouring and achieving a more sculpted appearance.
Recovery times vary depending on the extent of the procedure and individual healing. Most patients can resume light activities within a few days and return to normal activities within 6 – 8 weeks.
The results of liposuction are long-lasting, provided you maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight. Fat cells removed during liposuction will not return to the treated areas, but new fat cells can develop if you gain weight.
