Benefits to You
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:
- Clothing, including new or trendy styles, fits and looks better
- Minimized surface-level fat reveals greater muscle definition
- Self-confidence and body image improve
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. Ashley K. Lentz can customize a self-improvement plan for you.
Dr. Lentz will perform your Liposuction surgery at Advent Health Daytona Beach or Halifax Health Hospital - Port Orange.
Every surgery carries the risk of a complication, including elective cosmetic surgery. Complications are rare, but they do occur. CosmetAssure provides you with insurance coverage in the unlikely event a complication occurs with a board certified plastic surgeon. CosmetAssure is a solution to the lack of coverage for medical complications that can occur during or after your surgery.
What to Expect
Dr. Ashley K. Lentz performs liposuction as either an outpatient or inpatient in the hospital. She uses general anesthesia so you remain comfortable throughout the surgery. For the procedure, she inserts a thin cannula, or tube, through small incisions. She 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. Ashley K. 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.
Your Improved Look
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.
