Liposuction Q&A

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive technique that removes excess body fat in localized areas. Your Opulence Modern Medical Artistry provider inserts a cannula, or tiny suction tube, through tiny punctures in the skin to vacuum out unwanted, excess fat and reveal a slimmer figure.

You receive local anesthesia for this outpatient procedure that usually takes 1-3 hours.

What areas can liposuction treat?

Talk to the team at Opulence Modern Medical Artistry about your problem areas. Typical areas treated with liposuction include:

  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Waist
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs

Men and women benefit from liposuction.

Liposuction can also be a tool for a fat transfer. Your provider can transfer the removed fat to help you achieve a fuller face, butt, or breasts. Fat transfer is a natural alternative to implants. 

Who is a candidate for liposuction?

Men and women in generally good health are good candidates for liposuction. Remember, liposuction isn’t a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, nor is it a strategy for comprehensive weight loss. It fixes problem areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. You should be within 30% of your ideal body weight before undergoing the procedure.

After the procedure, commit to maintaining a healthy lifestyle to preserve your results.

Why should I consider liposuction?

Some of the most common reasons you may undergo liposuction include:

  • You have fat bulges or fat rolls that are unresponsive to traditional weight loss methods
  • You have pockets of fat that prevent clothing from fitting comfortably or smoothly
  • You desire a streamlined chest or stomach
  • You want to eliminate jowls around your jawline
  • You want to eliminate fatty deposits that interfere with an otherwise healthy body

Some men and women just want to improve their self-confidence so they look great at the beach and in the boardroom.

What is recovery like after liposuction?

You go home the same day as your liposuction procedure. Opulence Modern Medical Artistry provides you with comprehensive aftercare instructions so you can recuperate safely at home.

You may feel stiff or sore in treated areas following the procedure. Some mild swelling and bruising are to be expected. Manage discomfort with over-the-counter medications and plan to get up and walk around the day after your procedure. 

You may need to wait a few days before returning to work or regular activity. Your provider advises that you avoid physical activity until they determine it’s safe and won’t create complications.
