Liposuction Frequently Asked Questions
Possible Liposuction Complications:
- Nerve compression
- Cardiac arrhythmia
Swelling and bruising are common after liposuction and may cause some discomfort after your procedure. However, your ability to return to work and other activities will be determined by how many areas of the body you elected to have liposuction. Recovery time will vary from patient to patient.
Liposuction is for people who are already fairly lean but need a solution for stubborn problem areas. Everyone has a place on their body that they wish could be different. When you really become committed to tackling that problem area, that’s where liposuction surgery and other cosmetic procedures come in. During the traditional liposuction procedure, fat is literally removed using suction. It should be noted that with this procedure a compression garment will need to be worn post-operative. We can discuss these matters in detail during your liposuction consultation in our Newport Beach office.
Many women share one common frustration – stubborn fat on the back of the upper arm and bra line that is resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction of the upper arm and bra fat can be very rewarding to the patient who is the right candidate. Significant changes after liposuction can be readily seen within 4 weeks post-operative and continue to improve over many months, stabilizing at one year. Liposuction is an excellent adjunct to breast augmentation, breast lifts, rhinoplasty, and abdominoplasty.
These types of combination procedures are very effective when performed in the same aesthetic region, such as the rhinoplasty and neck/chin liposuction or the breast lift with liposuction of the bra fat.
If you decide to move forward with liposuction after your initial consultation, you can schedule your pre-operative appointment and procedure. Our facility is located in Newport Beach, making it convenient for the follow up appointments. After your procedure, follow up is necessary to prevent complications and ensure the best results. Your satisfaction can only be achieved if your liposuction is both safe and effective. This is my primary objective.
