What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a body sculpting treatment that uses surgical techniques to target and remove unwanted fat in the body. In many cases, patients find that losing fat can be notoriously difficult in some areas of the body. Whether you are struggling to get your desired results with diet and exercise, or you’re simply looking for more predictable results, liposuction may be a good option. The liposuction procedure removes fat cells from the desired treatment area to instantly enhance the contours of the body. Plus, it can be used on nearly all areas of the body, including the arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, legs and more.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
Like many cosmetic surgeries, the cost of a liposuction can vary significantly depending on the treatment goals and needs of the patient. To determine the cost of your liposuction treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Banks’ team. During your consultation, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to make this and other treatments as affordable as possible, we offer flexible financing options.
What is the Liposuction Treatment Like?
The liposuction procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia depending on your treatment plan. Treatments that require general anesthesia will be performed at our local surgery center. To perform the surgery, a small incision will be made near the treatment area. We make every effort to make this incision as small and discreet as possible. Through this incision, we will insert a small metal tube, called a cannula. Using a vacuum system, the cannula will remove fat from the treatment area to produce the desired results.
What Can I Expect After the Liposuction Treatment?
After liposuction, you will need to take at least three days off of work and other activities. During this time, you can expect swelling, bruising and discomfort in the treatment area. These symptoms can vary depending on the extent of treatment performed, but they’re typically most severe within the first week. We will provide you with a prescription for pain medication and clear guidelines to make your recovery as comfortable as possible. Patients can expect to be fully healed about 6 to 8 weeks after their surgery.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Liposuction?
The results from a liposuction will be visible immediately, and will become more noticeable as the body heals and any side effects fade. The results of liposuction can be considered permanent, as the fat cells that are removed during treatment will not come back after surgery. However, fat can still reaccumulate in the treatment area in the event that the patient experiences weight gain. For this reason, we encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits after their procedure to ensure their results last as long as possible.
Is a Liposuction Right for Me?
If you are looking for a versatile body sculpting treatment to remove stubborn fat, liposuction can be a highly effective option. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this treatment is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Banks’ team at Art of Balance Wellness Spa. During your consultation, we’ll review your treatment goals and determine whether liposuction is the best option for you.
