At the Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic, our board certified surgeons work individually with you to come up with a treatment plan that works best for you. No matter what type of procedure you’re looking for, you can expect reliable results from our team.
Despite following a balanced diet and regular exercise schedule, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. If this sounds like you, liposuction may be right for you. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and best results are obtained closer to your ideal body weight.
Liposuction is useful because it is not just designed for one part of the body. You can use liposuction to remove fat from a wide range of areas, from:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
- Cheeks, chin and neck
- Calves and ankles
Liposuction at Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic usually involves the use of tumescent fluid (mixture of saline solution, epinephrine and local anesthetic) and then surgical suctioning of excess fat. Liposuction is not designed for removal of excess skin. In those cases alternate or additional treatments are involved.
Swelling should subside, bruising should fade and initial results will appear in approximately 2-4 weeks. Final results will appear in approximately 3-6 months.
