What to Expect When You Get Liposuction

Achieve a smoother stomach with a liposuction.

There’s no reason to live with your insecurities these days. Whether it’s love handles or a double chin that gives you angst, you have options to eliminate any extra fat that makes you unhappy. We offer liposuction in Austin, Texas, to completely transform your appearance and help you gain back your confidence. Here’s what to expect when you get liposuction.

Immediate Results

Unlike other fat reduction treatments, such as CoolSculpting, which need time to work, you will see immediate and drastic results when you opt for liposuction. We remove the unwanted fat deposits from the area you want to improve, allowing the muscles to become more prominent.

The Surgery

We offer liposuction as an outpatient procedure and, depending on what areas are to be treated, use general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. A small incision is made, so that we can saturate the fat with tumescent fluid, forcing it to swell, which makes it easier to remove. We then insert a small tube to safely suction out the excess fat. Liposuction isn’t for removing large areas of fat, but it’s ideal for reducing those annoying bulges we all struggle with. Most people are prone to fat accumulation in certain areas of the body, and these deposits are typically the most difficult to get rid of via diet, exercise, and other traditional methods.

Liposuction Recovery

After a liposuction procedure, most patients can return to their regular routines within a few days and completely recover within 4 to 6 weeks. Immediately after surgery, you will experience some swelling and bruising; and you’ll need to wear compression garments for a few weeks. These garments help reduce swelling and will give you optimal results. After you’ve recovered, you can expect your new figure to be long-lasting while practicing a healthy lifestyle.

Taking on a Healthy Lifestyle

Liposuction will successfully remove any unwanted fat cells, but getting liposuction doesn’t guarantee that you will no longer gain weight. Remember that liposuction isn’t a weight-loss solution—the remaining fat cells in your body can still grow and have the potential to ruin your results. So it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after your liposuction surgery. Because the procedure removes the fat cells situated above the muscles and makes you look leaner, you can enhance your results with exercise and good eating habits. This will continue to improve your appearance and give you more muscle tone.
