Suction-assisted liposuction, also known as lipectomy, can smooth your body contours by removing localized areas of fat from the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck. Although patients’ reasons for choosing liposuction vary, their ultimate goal remains the same: a slim and balanced body shape. Beyond this, the procedure can benefit patients in many ways:
Potential liposuction patients should view the procedure as a companion, not an alternative, to diet and exercise. Because liposuction removes fat cells, those who maintain a healthy lifestyle can obtain long-lasting results.
Although liposuction alone meets many patients’ needs, it also complements other procedures such as a face lift, tummy tuck, or breast augmentation in Central Florida. In your consultation, you will discuss your unique concerns and goals so Dr. Lentz can customize a self-improvement plan for you.
Dr. Lentz performs liposuction as an outpatient procedure in an AAAASF-certified operating room. He uses local or general anesthesia so you remain comfortable throughout the surgery. For the procedure, he inserts a thin cannula, or tube, through small incisions. He then moves the cannula in a controlled motion to break up and suction away unwanted fat.
Following surgery, you can expect to recover in 24 to 48 hours and return to mild activity within a few days. You should be able to resume your normal routine, including exercise, in 10 to 14 days. Medication usually controls any pain or discomfort you experience, which usually subsides within a few days. Any stitches you have will be removed approximately a week after surgery.
Dr. Lentz makes every effort to minimize scarring, hiding incisions whenever possible in natural lines and creases of your skin. Over time, your scars will fade gradually and become barely noticeable.
Following your liposuction, you will see an immediate improvement in your body contour. Your shape will continue to improve over the next several weeks as any swelling subsides.
