Lake Mary Liposuction (Suction Lipectomy) - Dr. Shoukas

Liposuction Before/After Pics


Also known as suction lipectomy, liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion.

Despite good health and an appropriate level of physical fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.

Liposuction surgery can be used to treat these fat pockets in many parts of the body including the thighs, arms, neck, hips, waist, back, inner knee, chest, cheeks, chin, calves, and ankles.

Liposuction can be performed alone or it can be used in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast reduction, or a tummy tuck.

What liposuction won’t do:

Liposuction surgery is not a treatment for obesity and is not a replacement for regular exercise and good eating habits. People with stubborn areas of fat and who exercise regularly are the best candidates for this procedure.

 

Anesthesia

Liposuction is usually performed in the operating room under general anesthesia. This is not preformed in our Lake Mary office.

 

Surgical Steps:
Liposuction is performed through small incisions hidden in natural creases of the body. First, sterile fluid is infused into the treatment area to reduce bleeding and trauma. Next a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through these incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.
Your improved body contour will be apparent when the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside.
With continued practices of healthy diet and fitness, the loss of excess fatty tissue should be permanently maintained. However, substantial weight gain can alter an otherwise permanent result.
Recovery:

After liposuction surgery a compression garment or elastic bandage will be worn over the treatment areas. These help to control swelling after liposuction and compress the skin to your new body contours.
It may take several months for the swelling to fully resolve after liposuction surgery. As it does, your new contours and enhanced body shape will continue to develop.

The improved contours you achieve from liposuction should remain with you as long as you control your weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. A significant amount of weight gain can negatively impact your results.
