Liposuction Tallahassee

Liposuction is used to remove undesirable fat deposits and contour the body in a way that leaves a more sculpted firm appearance. Most areas of the body can be improved by liposuction including: the abdomen and waist, hips and buttocks, back, thighs, knees, upper arms, calves and ankles, cheeks, chin and neck. The procedure can be performed by itself or with other surgery procedures like a facelift.

It is not used as a treatment for obesity or a substitute for lack of exercise. It also is not a treatment for cellulite, the dimpled skin that appears on thighs, hips and buttocks.

The ideal candidate is within 30 percent of the ideal weight and has firm, elastic skin as well as good muscle tone. The individual is a non-smoker and is in good health. If an individual has any area on the body that has not responded to diet and/or exercise, liposuction may be a good alternative.

Following the procedure, patients will be placed in a compression garment or elastic bandage that will be worn for approximately four weeks. It helps to control swelling and compress the skin. Also small drains may be placed in incisions to remove any excess blood or fluid. Most patients begin to feel better after about a week or two. Most people return to work in three to five days.
