Body Procedure FAQ’s

Liposuction

What does the procedure entail?

Excess fat is often difficult to be rid of, even with regular diet and exercise. For those that are at a relatively healthy weight, but have pockets of fat that they cannot seem to get rid of, liposuction is a great option. In your consultation, you’ll be able to discuss the areas on your body you want to see improvement on, whether your arms, stomach, back, etc. You will be given anesthesia for the actual procedure, and our surgeon will remove the excess fat with a cannula. Once you have recovered fully, the area will be better contoured and sculpted.

What will my recovery be like?

Liposuction recovery depends on the extent of the procedure, and the area or areas we have targeted. You will be able to resume a normal diet immediately, along with walk and do stairs after the surgery. Plan on wearing comfortable clothes, as you will need to wear an elastic girdle for up to a week post-surgery. Results will show after 48 hours, but swelling and bruising may last for up to eight weeks. You’ll be able to resume working out after two weeks.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

What does the procedure entail?

A tummy tuck is a great option for those that have lost a dramatic amount of weight or have had multiple children, as it is able to manage excess amounts of fat and skin. Oftentimes, those that have lost a lot of weight have excess skin that no amount of diet or exercise will be able to minimize. This procedure removes the skin and extra fat so that your abdominal muscles are more toned and firm. Ideal candidates are typically healthy and at a normal weight.

What will my recovery be like?

Most patients take one or two weeks to recover, but you will want to wait to exercise for a full three weeks (six weeks for any weight lifting). For three to four days after surgery, you will want to stick to small meals, and you will have to sleep on your back for one week. One of the best parts about a tummy tuck is that the results can last your whole life with regular diet and exercise.
