How is Liposuction Surgery performed?Liposuction produces a permanent improvement in the proportion and contour of the treated areas. A flatter physique with or without clothes is one of the goals of liposuction. Dr. Soler performs liposuction under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. The patient goes home with either a compression tape or garment covering the areas that are treated. The swelling is reduced after surgery due to wearing a compression garment which is recommended to be worn for a month. Once the soreness and pain is decreased, it is comfortable to wear spandex or lycra pants. Any of these discomforts in the initial stages can be controlled with oral pain medications. It will take about 2 weeks to a month for the bruises and swelling to disappear. The desired result show within 3 to 6 months after surgery. If the patient is looking to increase a specific area of their body such as a buttock enhancement, fat grafting could be performed with the liposuction.
What are the risks involved with Liposuction Surgery?
Liposuction is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance. Any risks or individual suitability of Liposuction should be discussed directly with Dr. Soler during your one on one consultation. Even though all surgical procedures carry a slight degree of risk, major complications are very rare when undergoing a Liposuction surgery with Dr. Soler. Any minor complications that may arise do not hamper the end result of your surgery.
