What Are the Benefits of Liposuction?

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that provides a clinical reduction in subcutaneous fat. Additional benefits include a tighter, more contoured appearance for a shapelier figure, as well as a healthier lifestyle and improved self-esteem. Moreover, results are usually achieved in one treatment, which is performed with general or local anesthesia. Results are generally permanent, as long as the patient’s weight remains stable.

When Is Liposuction Recommended?

Liposuction is a convenient way for patients to get the figure they want, especially if they struggle with losing weight. The procedure can effectively remove stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to exercise and diet. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ditesheim can let you know if liposuction is right for you.

Ideal Candidate

One way to ensure the safety and efficacy of liposuction in Charlotte is to be a well-qualified candidate for this minimally invasive procedure. Liposuction is widely available to many people who have concerns about specific problem areas or who want general enhancement in their body contour.

A good candidate for liposuction is at a stable weight and has no underlying health conditions that would make surgery risky. Even those labeled as “overweight” can be good candidates in many cases, although Dr. Ditesheim will determine candidacy during an in-person consultation.

Understand that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure, and in order to maintain your results and ideal body weight it is best to get regular exercise and maintain a healthy diet.

Preparing for Liposuction

Before arriving for your liposuction appointment, Dr. Ditesheim will instruct you on which medications you can and cannot take in the days and weeks leading up to the procedure. He will also instruct you to stop smoking, as this inhibits the body’s healing process and increases the risk of complications.

You will need to arrange for a friend or loved one to drive you home from the procedure, and you will likely need to refrain from eating or drinking for at least 12 hours before your surgery.

Liposuction Recovery

The recovery timeline can vary depending on the extent of your specific liposuction procedure surgical plan. Those who undergo a local anesthetic procedure will likely need less time to recover than those with more extensive procedures under general anesthesia. In most cases, patients can return to light work after about a week or two, but will feel discomfort in the days leading up to this point.

Immediately after surgery, you will have bandages and in some cases drains that Dr. Ditesheim will provide care instructions for during a consultation. Your activity level and range of motion for things like bending over and lifting objects will be reduced until you’re more fully healed. Most Charlotte liposuction patients see full results after swelling and bruising has gone significantly down, usually at around the six-week mark.

Common Questions About Liposuction

Dr. Ditesheim performs liposuction procedures both using local and general anesthesia, depending on the intensity of the procedure and the number of incisions being made.

Visceral fat are deposits of fat deep in the body, covering internal organs. These cannot be removed with liposuction.

If you have body fat that won’t go away no matter what you eat or do, liposuction can be an effective way to permanently remove it.

Liposuction procedures vary widely in their cost based on your goals. For those looking to stick to a budget or treat only one area, liposuction can cost between $4,000 and $6,000. For those who want the most advanced liposuction techniques and the most dramatic transformation, procedures can cost up to $15,000.

No. Fat that is removed with liposuction is permanently gone. However, gaining weight following treatment will cause increased fat stores uniformly throughout the body, which will affect your achieved results.

People who have been treated with liposuction do not lose much weight as a direct result of the procedure. However, many patients experience a boost in self-confidence, helping them get back into a healthy exercise routine to maximize their results.

There is a limit to how much fat can be safely removed during liposuction procedures, although up to five liters may be able to be suctioned away depending on your needs and goals.

Not in every scenario. Using the gentle, efficient AquaShape liposuction device, Dr. Ditesheim can perform minor liposuction procedures without having to put the patient under general anesthesia. This shortens recovery time and makes the procedure more affordable.
