Liposuction

Liposuction at our Tallahassee, FL practice removes undesirable fat deposits and contours the body in a way that leaves a more sculpted, slimmer appearance. Liposuction may be the right solution for men and women who are struggling to reduce pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise

What Areas Can Liposuction Improve?

Most areas of the body can be improved by liposuction, including the:

  • Abdomen and waist
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Upper arms
  • Calves and ankles
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Neck

The procedure can be performed by itself or with other surgical procedures such as a facelift or tummy tuck.

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.

Who Is a Candidate for Liposuction?

The ideal candidate is within 30% of their ideal weight and has firm, elastic skin, as well as good muscle tone. The individual is a non-smoker and is in good health.

What Is Liposuction Recovery Like?

Following the procedure, you will be placed in a compression garment or elastic bandage that will be worn for approximately 4 weeks. This helps to control swelling and compress the skin. Small drains may be placed in the incisions to remove any excess blood or fluid. Most people return to work in 3 to 5 days and feel even better after about a week or 2.
