There are different types of liposuction that can be performed, depending on your goals and the areas being treated. The three most common types of lipo are:
This is the most common type of liposuction. A small amount of saline solution is injected into your fatty tissue before the fat is suctioned out. This solution helps to numb the area and reduce bleeding.
This type of lipo uses sound waves to break up the fat before it is suctioned out.
This type uses a small, rapid movement of the cannula to break up and suction out the fat.
L iposuction results are usually seen within the first few weeks as swelling subsides, but it can take up to 6 months for the full effects of your fat removal surgery to be visible. Once the final results are visible, they are typically long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight.
L iposuction procedures can be done in any number of ways, but the basics are the same. After you have been given an anesthetic, a numbing fluid (called tumescent) is placed into the areas where Dr. Hall will perform the procedure. A thin tube is then introduced through a few small, hidden incisions and is used to remove the unwanted fat deposits.
A fter liposuction, you’ll wear a form-fitting spandex garment for a few weeks while your body recovers. This prevents fluid build-up and acts to support the tissue as it heals.
There is typically some skin bruising, and you can expect some mild soreness for a few days. People usually return to work in 3-5 days, and will wear a spandex compression garment for around 6 weeks for liposuction procedure recovery.
