Liposuction should not be viewed as a method of achieving extreme weight loss. Ideal candidates should be in good health and have attempted to eradicate fat through a healthy lifestyle, including a consistent exercise regimen and healthy eating habits, prior to surgery. Candidates should have maintained a healthy weight for a sustained period of time prior to undergoing liposuction.
In an addition to traditional liposuction, Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A., offers a number of alternative liposuction techniques. After undergoing a personal examination, patients may be urged to consider a tummy tuck to further enhance their results.
During their initial consultations, patients will learn more about liposuction including what the procedure entails and how long post-surgery recovery time typically is. Because the liposuction procedure uses a tiny quarter-inch incision at the surgical site, it may be a good choice for someone concerned with scarring. Local or general anesthesia is used during the outpatient surgery, and dissolvable sutures are used to close the surgical incisions. Recovery time usually runs between one and two weeks, after which patients are able to resume their normal activities – albeit in their trimmer, more proportional bodies.
