How Liposuction Works
Liposuction can be performed on various areas of your body including the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, upper back, chin, and neck. Dr. Stile can perform tumescent liposuction, power-assisted lipo, ultrasound-assisted lipo, and VASER techniques. Liposuction can be performed on its own or paired with other surgeries.
The procedure will take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours to complete. After liposuction, you can enjoy reduced or diminished fat and greater definition in your abdomen, thighs, backs, and/or arms.
What to Expect From the Recovery Process
Fortunately, scarring is minimal after liposuction. While you may face some swelling or bruising, these side effects will subside on their own and can be controlled through pain medication. If you undergo the procedure, you can likely return to work and your daily responsibilities one week after.
However, Dr. Stile will ask that you stay away from exercise and other strenuous activities for a minimum of two weeks. Most patients recover in a couple of weeks. Rest assured Dr. Stile will provide you with detailed recovery instructions.
