Liposuction Overview: Face, Neck and Body
Despite good health and an exercise regimen, some individuals still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. Liposuction can slim or reshape specific areas of the body by removing localized or regional excess fat deposits. We would love the opportunity to discuss this more with you at a consultation at our Carmel practice located just north of Indianapolis.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is the surgical removal of localized excess fatty tissue. Our surgeons perform tumescent liposuction which is injecting the area with a saline solution before removing the fat and UAL, or ultrasound assisted liposuction, which consists of liquefying the fat with energy from sound waves before suctioning the area. Liposuction can be performed on multiple areas at the same time or in combination with another procedure. Liposuction can be performed on:
After surgery, compression garments are used to decrease swelling. Initial healing will include swelling, numbness, soreness, bruising, and discomfort that can be controlled by medication. It may take several months for swelling to fully subside. Following surgery, you can expect new contours and an enhanced self-image. Liposuction is not a substitute for proper diet or exercise. It is also not a treatment for obesity or an effective treatment for cellulite.
"Having a female surgeon who is dedicated and compassionate made the whole experience wonderful. I would definitely do it over again. "
