Liposuction FAQs

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

If you are struggling to get rid of unwanted fat, liposuction might be the best choice for you. Some may fear undergoing this slightly invasive cosmetic procedure, but our professional cosmetic surgeons in Naperville, IL at the Center for Cosmetic and Laser Surgery are certified to give you the results you’ve always dreamed of. Check out this list of common questions that patients ask before scheduling their liposuction procedure.

How Much Will I Lose?

Liposuction is not classified as a weight loss procedure, so those patients looking to lose more than five pounds may want to consider an alternative option. Although liposuction is not designed for weight loss, it does allow the cosmetic surgeons in Naperville, IL to target and treat your problem areas. A liposuction procedure is one of the only methods that can spot treat fat to give you a smoother, more contoured look.

How Long Will It Last?

When you remove fat cells from the body, they are gone permanently. It could take several months for your body to adjust to the procedure, so your final results could take up to six months to be revealed. Even if you gain weight after the procedure, the areas where fat was removed will keep their shape better than those that were not treated.

How Long Is Recovery?

After a liposuction procedure, you can expect to be in a recovery period anywhere from a few days to two weeks depending on your body and the areas treated. For any liposuction procedure, it is recommended that you take a few days off of work for recovery. For more information on the recovery process our cosmetic surgeons in Naperville, IL can help.

If you have any more questions about the liposuction procedure you can call Center for Cosmetic and Laser Surgery at (630) 851-3223 or visit our website.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
