What is liposuction?
Liposuction, or lipo, is a low-risk cosmetic procedure that uses a powerful suction pump attached to a slender tube called a cannula to remove excess fat deposits from localized areas of the body. Dr. Soto performs liposuction as a stand-alone procedure and also in conjunction with other types of cosmetic surgery, such as tummy tucks, breast reductions, and facelifts.
Am I a good candidate for liposuction?
Adult men and women who are in good overall health and who understand that liposuction isn’t a substitute for a healthy lifestyle or a cure for obesity are generally good candidates for liposuction.
If you think liposuction might be right for you, a consultation with Dr. Soto determines for sure if you’re a candidate for liposuction. Your consultation includes a comprehensive physical exam, a health history, and a detailed discussion of your aesthetic concerns and desired outcomes.
What areas can liposuction help?
Dr. Soto has the training and experience to perform liposuction on any part of the body where fat deposits collect, including:
- Upper back/shoulders
- Bra line
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Love handles
- Lower back
You may wish to have liposuction in just one area, or a combination of locations to achieve the leaner, sculpted shape you desire.
Does liposuction hurt?
Liposuction is a same-day, outpatient procedure typically performed under general anesthesia. For smaller areas, Dr. Soto may use local anesthesia, but either way, you won’t feel any pain during your liposuction surgery.
You can expect to feel some pain for a few days following liposuction, but Dr. Soto gives you prescription pain medication to make you more comfortable. Mild discomfort may continue for a few weeks, and it can take up to six weeks for the swelling and bruising to subside.
Are my results permanent?
The process of liposuction permanently removes fat cells from your body. As long as you maintain a healthy weight through proper nutrition and regular exercise, your stunning new shape is permanent.
