Frequently Asked Questions about Liposuction

As you recover from your procedure, you will experience swelling and some discomfort, which can be efficiently managed with medication. You will also wear a compression garment at this time to maintain the new contours of your body and help re-shape tissue to the improved body shape. As each day passes, you will feel more comfortable in your recovery. The initial days after treatment require the most rest. If your surgery was extensive, you would likely need to have a loved one available to help run errands and provide you with necessary medication. You will need to limit your activity during the initial recovery period, but Dr. Landis will ask you to ambulate within 24 hours after surgery. Depending on the area of treatment, Dr. Landis may advise you to be careful stretching or leaning to avoid injuring the treatment site or affecting wound healing.

To begin your treatment, Dr. Landis will make one or more small incisions at targeted sites. Through these incisions, he will insert a thin tube called a cannula. In some cases, a tumescent solution may also be injected to treat the fat, making it easier to remove, while acting as a numbing or pain-relieving agent. The cannula is then used to efficiently suction fat cells as Dr. Landis moves it gently back and forth across the treatment area to break up cells.

While liposuction may seem straight-forward, it is an art that must be completed precisely to create smooth body contours. Dr. Landis is highly experienced in the technique of aesthetic fat removal and ensures that treatment sites look flawless after healing has been completed.

Some patients are hesitant to complete a surgical procedure and instead look for other ways to eliminate fat deposits. This has led to increased prevalence of hand-held fat freezing equipment or similar machines that claim to reduce fat with the topical application of heat or cooling.  This is certainly appealing to many, but results can leave patients unsure of whether the treatment has worked effectively to contour problem areas. What’s more, these treatment methods require multiple visits and sessions, and outcomes aren’t always predictable.

While liposuction is indeed surgical, it is a minimally invasive treatment that produces almost immediately apparent results. Fat is permanently removed, and your appearance will only improve as swelling recedes.
