What is Liposuction?
Despite how much you try to lose weight, you are probably still be bothered by pockets of fat that keep you from feeling confident in how you look. Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa is proud to offer the latest treatments to effectively remove fat from troublesome areas of the body. Liposuction is a body contouring treatment that reduces fat from the flanks, tummy, buttocks, and thighs to create a more defined appearance. This cosmetic procedure at Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa can be combined to treat several body parts, depending on your particular needs. During your initial visit, New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Heath Charvet will examine areas of concern so you can attain your aesthetic goals. We want you to look and feel the best you can be.
"Dr. Charvet performed a breast reduction, liposuction, and fat transfer in December 2021. My first consultation he spent 45 minutes (or longer), I came with a long list of questions that he honestly answered. In that time, I knew that he was a perfectionist and would do an amazing job! He made me feel comfortable and I trusted him completely to help me make the best decisions for my body. The results are amazing and definitely exceeded my expectations. Being in healthcare myself, I understand the importance of the patient, not just the procedure. Dr Charvet puts the patient at the forefront of his practice. After the procedure he was available at all times to talk and answer any questions or concerns I had. I cannot express my gratitude enough! Thank you Dr Charvet for giving me the feelings of confidence that I have not felt in a very long time! M. Moreau"- M.M. / Google / May 03, 2022
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.
