What is a Liposuction?
Suction assisted lipoplasty, known as liposuction, is a technique which assists in sculpting a patient’s body by eliminating unwanted pockets of exercise and diet-resistant fat from such areas as the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, breasts (including male breasts), back, arms and neck.
Liposuction technique is commonly paired other procedures to create a desired shape and is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic procedures.
When liposuction is performed, there are specific limitations as to how much tissue can be removed. Additionally, the areas treated with liposuction may accumulate fluid and have significant bruising. Bruising will improve over several weeks. During this time, it is recommended that compression garments be worn to assist in minimizing fluid build up.
