Even people who lead a healthy lifestyle have a few challenging areas of fat. Whether you struggle with your abdomen, your thighs, or under your chin, liposuction can help you achieve your body sculpting goals. This fat removal procedure shapes and contours your figure to boost your confidence. 

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is the most effective way to sculpt areas of the body by removing excess fat, whether alone or as part of another procedure. Dr. Stile performs several types of liposuction, including laser and ultrasound-assisted methods. He most often uses tumescent liposuction, a technique that maximizes results by giving him more control and precision. Liposuction uses a few small incisions to insert a cannula that breaks up and removes fat.

How Safe is Liposuction?

You should always ask questions about safety any time you consider a procedure. All procedures have risks, including liposuction. However, the best way to protect yourself is to choose a skilled surgeon with extensive experience. Dr. Stile’s expertise lets him remove fat from problem areas safely. 

Another important fact to consider is whether you are healthy enough for cosmetic surgery procedures including liposuction. Dr. Stile will determine if you are a candidate after a consultation and review of your medical history. There is minimal risk for most healthy adults. Lipocontouring may not be recommended for those with certain medical conditions. 

Liposuction is a very low-risk procedure. Post operative discomfort is minor and temporary. Talk to Dr. Stile about any concerns you have regarding safety or the details of your procedure. 

What is Recovery Like After Liposuction?

You can expect some swelling, bruising, and soreness immediately after your procedure. You will receive a compression garment to support the treated areas while they heal. Most patients start to feel more like themselves within a few days. You can resume your usual activities, including work, within five to seven days. Dr. Stile will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions. You will only have a few small incisions, which will heal quickly.


What Results Will I See After Liposuction?

Your liposuction results will become more defined as your swelling resolves over the first few weeks. Since your body does not regrow fat cells, your liposuction results can last a lifetime. We recommend a healthy lifestyle and maintaining a stable weight. You may see changes to the treated area if you have a significant weight change. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Removal With Liposuction?

Liposuction is an excellent fat-removal option for individuals who want to achieve a more sculpted figure. Good candidates should lead a generally healthy lifestyle and maintain a consistent weight. Candidates should understand that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and you should not expect it to help you lose weight.
