Liposuction – Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic
Do you need liposuction? Tallahassee plastic surgeons explains despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.
With liposuction, Tallahassee surgeons can help patients slim and reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits. Liposuction will also help improve your body contours and proportion, and ultimately enhancing your self-image.
These techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
- Cheeks, chin and neck
- Calves and ankles
There are three common variations to the procedure at Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic:
- In traditional liposuction, Tallahassee surgeons use surgical suctioning of excess fat deposits
- The tumescent or super-wet technique requires an infusion of saline solution with adrenaline and possibly anesthetic prior to removal of excess fat
- Ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy excess fat prior to surgical suctioning
Swelling should subside, bruising should fade and initial results may appear in 2-4 weeks. Final results could appear in 2-6 months. Significant weight gain can cause recurrence of fatty deposits.
