By German Newall
Liposuction reshapes the body and improves its proportions through the removal of excess fat. Despite exercise
and good eating habits, fat can be resistant to removal in certain areas due to genetics and the body's
hormonally-influenced tendency to store fat in certain areas for men and women. Liposuction allows you achieve
the contouring you desire on almost any area of the body, including:
- Lower Body (hips, thighs, and buttocks)
- Abdomen and waist
- Legs (knees, calves, and ankles)
- Neck and chin
The Liposuction Procedure
In a liposuction procedure, Dr. Newall makes small, inconspicuous incisions in the skin. After infusing a
sterile liquid tumesced solution to reduce bleeding, bruising, and pain, he inserts a thin, hollow tube called
a cannula. This allows him to suction out the fat in a manner that achieves the desired shaping goals.
The length of the procedure can last anywhere from 1 to 4 hours, depending on the amount of fat that is removed
and the number of sites that are recontoured.
After your liposuction procedure, you will be fitted with a compression garment that is worn for approximately
4 weeks to help reduce swelling and compress the skin to its new contours. Most individuals find they are able
to return to work after 4-7 days of recovery and exercise in 3 weeks.
Liposuction--The Results and Benefits
The results of liposuction are typically long lasting providing that a stable weight is maintained. For many
individuals, liposuction inspires them to develop a healthier lifestyle that not only maintains their new
shape, but also improves their overall fitness and feelings of confidence.
Liposuction / Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Procedure
By combining liposuction and a tummy tuck procedures, Dr. Newall is often able to achieve extensive reshaping
of the body as an alternative to a body lift. While liposuction removes excess fat, a tummy tuck
addresses loose skin and weakend muscles in the abdominal area that can be due to large weight loss or
pregnancy. A tummy tuck effectively restores a flat, smooth contour to the abdomen through the removal of loose
skin and tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. Recovery for this procedure is typically 10-14 days.
