Benefits of Liposuction
What to Expect During Liposuction Surgery
There are a variety of liposuction procedures. Despite the difference in procedures, all liposuction techniques follow the same basic principles. Liposuction reduces fat in the body by physically removing the fat buildup during surgery. During the lipo procedure, your surgeon makes a small incision and uses a cannula (a long tub with a gentle vacuum mechanism) to break up the fat cells. Once broken up, those fat cells are suctioned out of the body.
Using his expertise and precision knowledge of surgical procedures, Dr. Altman can contour the body using liposuction to alter the contours of the body, improving aesthetic symmetry. After your surgery, you will enjoy fewer fat deposits and a more contoured, slim, shaped physique.
Liposuction recovery at Altman Aesthetics Center is typically one week.
Liposuction Before and After Results*
Liposuction before and after pictures show the transformative fat reduction and body contouring results possible with this procedure. As with most cosmetic procedures, results may vary. *However, each person shown below achieves noticeable changes in their body shape, like less fat buildup and a more contoured or slimmer body.
Liposuction Treatment Areas
The swelling subsides within several weeks. For some patients, swelling can take up to several months to completely subside. Unlike weight loss treatments, which reduce the fat cells’ size, liposuction removes the fat cells entirely from the body. Once those cells are gone, they can never grow back.
Lipo provides patients with lasting fat reduction. However, it is recommended that patients follow a healthy diet and exercise after surgery to maintain their results. Gaining weight will obscure the lipo results.
As with any cosmetic procedure, individual experiences will vary.*
Liposuction Aftercare & Recovery with Dr. Altman*
After liposuction, Dr. Altman’s patients receive massage therapy. This helps with swelling and lymphatic drainage. We offer massage therapy in our practice because we want your recovery to be as swift and easy as possible.
Our popular Lymphatic Drainage massage is a 90-minute massage treatment using CBD oil and modalities like ultrasound, cavitation, electric stimulation, and cupping.
We also offer other massage therapy options like Swedish and deep tissue to benefit your body’s healing post-lipo.
Your liposuction recovery depends on your specific operation. Most patients can expect some temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, and tenderness in the treatment area. Patients receive a compression garment to wear afterward to reduce swelling.
Strenuous activity should be limited for several weeks after surgery. However, most patients can return to work within several days of their liposuction procedure, depending on their specific work situation. As always, individual experience will vary.*
“it’s a huge honor to be trusted by someone…an honor that should never be taken lightly”
