How Does Liposuction Work?
While liposuction has always been one of the most popular aesthetic procedures, the advancements made in the last several years have done wonders for its precision and healing time as well as giving surgeons like Dr. Brenman more control to truly let their skills with the procedure shine. While there are several options for how the procedure can be performed, liposuction generally involves inserting a cannula into the treatment area where unresponsive fat pockets reside and suctioning the fat cells away to sculpt the body for the patient’s aesthetic goals, giving you a more shapely figure than before.
Am I a Good Candidate?
What is the Procedure Like?
Downtime and Recovery*
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure, so you’ll return home the same day with thorough aftercare instructions. You’ll need a loved one to drive you because you’ll feel unsteady and a bit foggy from the anesthesia. Bruising and swelling are normal and should subside on their own in a couple of weeks. In the first few days, getting mobile will help your circulation, but you should get plenty of rest so your body can heal. Most patients feel well enough to return to work after 1 week. Those with more strenuous jobs may need 2-3 weeks off work.
What Results Can I Expect?
Your newly sculpted physique will become more apparent as the swelling subsides, though it may take a few months for your tissues to fully settle. Because the body stops producing new fat cells after puberty, your stubborn pockets of fat will not return. However, the remaining fat cells can still grow in size, so it’s important to keep up your healthy lifestyle to maintain your results.
After your liposuction at the Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery, your clothes will fit better, you’ll have a sleeker profile, and your unwanted fat will be gone. Patients report feeling happier with their appearance, which increases their confidence, improving their social and professional relationships. Tired of fighting with stubborn fat? Dr. Brenman can help you sculpt the body you’ve always wanted with liposuction.
