What Are the Benefits of Liposuction Surgery?

  • Reducing unwanted fat that has not responded to diet and exercise

  • Toning and trimming your overall profile

  • Results are often noticeable within a few weeks after the surgery

Can I Get Liposuction?

Lipo is a generally considered an appropriate procedure for both women and men who are at an ideal weight but have troublesome areas of fat that are difficult to rid with exercise and diet. It's important to keep in mind that liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise, but it can help with those last few stubborn spots. If you are considering liposuction, you should have good skin elasticity, because liposuction does not address loose skin and can often make skin laxity more pronounced. Women should have childbearing behind them, as pregnancy may compromise future results. During your consultation for liposuction surgery, Dr. Mang will discuss realistic expectations.

How Does Lipo Work?

Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure while you are under general anesthesia. A punch-hole incision will be made in your skin so a cannula can be inserted, which is used to loosen the fat as it is being vacuumed out. Depending on the number of areas being treated, your procedure may last for about 1-3 hours. Once complete, Dr. Mang will close the small incision. In our recovery area, one of our dedicated team members will help manage any discomfort and look after your incisions until your discharge.

What Can I Expect After Liposuction?

You may need to take about 1-3 weeks off of work after liposuction surgery, depending on the number of treatments performed and the size of the area(s) you had treated. It's normal to have swelling and bruising for about 1 – 2 weeks, and the sutures can typically be taken out about 7 – 10 days after surgery. It is important to give your body time to rest and recover following liposuction in order to avoid unwanted postoperative complications, including delayed healing. Once you go back to your job or normal everyday activities, you should remember to ease back into your routines gradually. To build up your strength, try light workouts and go for walks as approved by Dr. Mang. You may see some changes soon after your surgery, but after 6 – 10 months, your new body contour and shape will be even more visible.

Liposuction FAQ

How much does liposuction cost?
The price for liposuction will vary depending on the technique being used and the number of areas being addressed. In your consultation, Dr. Mang will develop your unique liposuction surgical plan based on your needs and goals. He will also consider your budget. When your plan is developed, estimated costs will be discussed. To make your surgery affordable, Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery takes several payment options, and we can help you find low-interest medical financing.

What about nonsurgical liposuction?
There are many nonsurgical options to reduce fat. Some of the most popular brands are CoolSculpting®, UltraShape, Vanquish, KYBELLA®, and Liposonix. Although some of these nonsurgical procedures may help reduce small amounts of fat, liposuction is still best for most people due to its more consistent and dramatic results. Ask Dr. Mang about nonsurgical lipo in your consultation. He can explain the benefits and drawbacks of all your options and help you choose which is best for you.

What about cellulite and loose skin?
Liposuction surgery only corrects excess fat in the body. For loose skin, Dr. Mang may recommend combining liposuction with a surgical body lift. Liposuction is often done along with skin tightening surgery, like a tummy tuck, thighplasty, or arm lift, to give you your best results. To correct cellulite, there are many minimally invasive and nonsurgical treatment options, including VelaShape®, Cellulaze, VASER® Shape, and Venus Freeze™. In your consultation, talk to Dr. Mang about all your concerns like loose skin and cellulite so a comprehensive treatment plan can be developed.

Will liposuction leave scars?
Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, incisions will need to be made and sutured. This will leave scars; however, Dr. Mang does his best to minimize their appearance. This includes making small incisions in the natural folds of your body or in less visible areas. After your surgery, Dr. Mang or a member of his team will go over how to care for your incisions — so they heal properly and fade.

Will my results last?
Before liposuction, it is important to be committed to maintaining your results. While liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in your body, you can still gain and lose weight. Dr. Mang suggests that you be at or close to a healthy weight before having liposuction. Afterward, it is best to stay 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 performed to refresh your appearance.
