What areas can liposuction treat?

Liposuction reduces unwanted fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. The procedure can treat multiple areas of the body, including the:

  • Lower abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Knees
  • Chin

Many patients prefer to treat more than one area during the same procedure. Dr. Wright will assess your target areas at your personal consultation and explain which spots would benefit most from liposuction. He can use the fat removed during liposuction to enhance other areas such as the face, breasts, and buttocks Brazilian butt lift.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction is an excellent option for men or women who have rolls and bulges that won’t go away via healthy lifestyle choices. Good candidates are those who:

  • Don’t smoke
  • Are at a stable weight
  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Want to target specific areas of fat

Patients should be within 30% of their ideal weight, as the procedure isn’t a weight loss tool. While liposuction permanently removes unwanted fat, it won’t dramatically change the number on the scale. Dr. Wright can perform minimally invasive Renuvion® skin tightening along with liposuction for patients with inadequate skin elasticity.

What happens during the liposuction procedure?

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. During surgery, Dr. Wright makes small incisions near the target areas, inserting a narrow tube (called a cannula). He moves the cannula around to help break up fat cells and suction out the fatty tissue. The length of the procedure depends on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat removed.

Can liposuction be combined with other procedures?

Yes, liposuction easily combines with other body contouring procedures. It frequently complements a tummy tuck, a specialized procedure that slims and sculpts the midsection. When performed with a tummy tuck and a breast enhancement procedure, liposuction can be part of a mommy makeover. It is also sometimes used in procedures such as breast reduction. Dr. Wright will guide you toward the best combination of procedures for your particular needs.

What is recovery like after liposuction?

Find a loved one or trusted friend to drive you home after liposuction surgery. Your treated areas may feel sore and swollen, but your compression bandages will alleviate some discomfort. It usually takes around 2 weeks to recover from liposuction, although smaller treatment areas will have a faster recovery time. Most patients can return to work and their daily activities within 10 to 12 days.
