Sometimes, inherited traits can make it difficult to attain your desired body shape, even with years of exercise. If you find yourself struggling to achieve your ideal physique, liposuction may be the perfect solution for you - and it's no wonder why it's the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure available. With liposuction, you can target specific areas of your body that are resistant to traditional exercise, acting as a powerful "spot reducer" to remove stubborn fat. Under the care of our highly trained Board Certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. DeLozier, you can expect a slimmer, more defined figure that you can feel confident in. Don't wait to achieve the body of your dreams - contact us today to learn more about how liposuction can work for you.
Your safety and comfort are our top priorities during your liposuction procedure, which is why you will be under general anesthesia. We use liposuction to effectively remove fat from various areas of the body, including the arms, legs, torso, and face. To begin the procedure, Dr. DeLozier will make small incisions near the targeted areas and insert a thin, hollow tube known as a cannula. This cannula is then moved through the layers of tissue to remove the excess fat, resulting in a more contoured appearance. In some cases, excess skin may also need to be removed, in which case Dr. DeLozier will carefully stitch the incision to ensure optimal results. Trust in our expert care to help you achieve the look you desire.
There are several liposuction techniques for you to choose from:
Dr. DeLozier offers Smart Lipo - a revolutionary, minimally invasive laser lipolysis system for fat removal. Using a small cannula, the laser fiber ruptures fat cells and causes collagen shrinkage and skin tightening. Smart Lipo offers a quicker recovery time, less bleeding, swelling and bruising compared to traditional liposuction.
Dr. DeLozier will want you to move around as soon as possible to increase circulation after your liposuction procedure. After about 1-2 weeks your stitches will be removed. Most of the swelling should subside after three weeks. It is possible, though unlikely, that some swelling may last up to six months. You may resume normal exercise and activities after one month. At DeLozier Cosmetic Surgery Center, we will carefully track your recovery through follow-up visits.
You will have a more contoured silhouette as a result of liposuction surgery. Whether you seek a dramatic area reduction or just want to trim your physique, you’ll need new clothing to fit your new shape. Or you may finally enjoy the way clothes fit you. Our patients enjoy making the most of their new-found toned body. We expect that you will, too.
