Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jarrod Little performs liposuction at our aesthetic plastic and reconstructive surgery center in Louisville for patients who need help getting rid of stubborn bulges of fat on their bodies. Liposuction is a fat removal and body contouring procedure that is an excellent option for both men and women who have found it incredibly difficult to target pockets of fat using traditional methods of fat reduction like dieting and exercise.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction, often referred to as lipo, is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas. No type of liposuction is a substitute for dieting and exercise; liposuction removes stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to traditional weight-loss methods. Several methods can be used, from traditional techniques to those incorporating ultrasound or lasers. Liposuction is generally performed on an outpatient basis and requires about a week of downtime, depending on the amount of sculpting.
Which Areas of the Body Can be Treated with Liposuction?
Liposuction can be used to target large areas of the body, like the back, as well as smaller and more delicate areas like around the neck. Liposuction is commonly performed on the:
- Chest (gynecomastia)
Some swelling and rising are to be expected following liposuction. A compression garment will need to be worn around the surgery site to help manage swelling. Most patients need around one to two weeks of recovery before they can resume most of their normal activities. Strenuous activities like exercise, heavy lifting, and running will need to be avoided for around four to six weeks.
The cost of liposuction surgery will vary as each procedure is personalized to provide the patient with the results they are looking for. The number of areas being treated and the amount of work needed to eliminate the fat in the area also play a role.
