How is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction is performed in an outpatient setting under general anesthesia. A very small incision is made through the skin so a cannula can be placed. We will use the cannula to work the fatty tissue loose so we can vacuum it out. Once the desired amount of fatty tissue has been removed, Dr. Charvet will close the incision. Depending on your treatment plan, your procedure may last 1 – 3 hours. In the recovery area, your post-op team will assist you with managing any pain and look after your incisions until you're discharged. You may be in recovery at home for 1 – 3 weeks, depending on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat removed. It is typical to see bruising and swelling for 1 – 2 weeks, and you can have stitches removed 7 – 10 days after surgery. The most important thing to do after having any surgery is to give your body time to recover and heal. When you decide to return to work after your procedure, you should do your best to go slow. To build up your strength and stamina, try light workouts and go for walks as advised by Dr. Charvet. Keep in mind, you may see some improvements after six weeks, but it will take 6 – 10 months until your new body shape and contour is complete.

Liposuction FAQ

How much does liposuction cost?
The price of liposuction varies depending on the technique selected and how many areas are being treated. During your consultation, Dr. Charvet will develop your custom liposuction surgical plan based on your needs and goals. He will also take into consideration your budget. When your plan is developed, estimated costs will be discussed.

Will I have scars?
Since a facelift is a surgical procedure, incisions will be made and sutured. This will leave scars, but Dr. Charvet does his best to minimize their appearance. This includes making small incisions in less visible areas or the natural folds of your body. After your surgery, Dr. Charvet or a member of his team will go over how to care for your stitches so they heal flat and eventually fade.

Will my results last?
Before liposuction, it's important to be prepared to maintain your results. While liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in your body, you can still lose and gain weight. Dr. Charvet recommends that you be at or close to your ideal weight before having liposuction. Afterward, it's best to remain within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight. Getting pregnant after liposuction will also alter your results; however, a second surgery like a mommy makeover can be done to refresh your appearance.
