Liposuction

While the conventional liposuction procedure was effective in removing excessive fat deposits, it was a painful procedure that involved suctioning out large areas of solid fat. New technology has allowed for different techniques that improve the accuracy and reduce the pain associated with this procedure. Today, liposuction is usually performed via the tumescent technique. These new technologies have transformed liposuction into a much safer and less invasive procedure.

Who Can Have Liposuction?

The ideal candidate for liposuction is someone who is in good overall health, at or near their ideal body weight, has localized areas of diet resistant fat with good quality skin without rippling dimpling or cellulite. It is also important for patients to have realistic expectations, and remember that liposuction cannot be used as a means for major weight loss.

What Can Liposuction Correct?

Liposuction can be used to treat localized fat deposits within the following areas:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  • Neck
  • Upper Calves

Can I Combine Liposuction With Other Procedures?

This procedure may be performed alone, or can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction or tummy tuck, to achieve maximum results.

Tumescent Liposuction

There are several different techniques currently available for patients seeking liposuction treatment. New technologies have improved the safety and results of this procedure for both patient and doctor.

Dr. Hunsaker performs Liposuction using the tumescent technique. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, typically using general anesthesia. In some cases, general anesthesia is not needed is only a small area is being addressed. Dr. Hunsaker will inject a dilute local anesthetic into the area to help expand and firm the fat, making it easier to remove. This also dramatically reduces any blood loss. The cannula is then inserted through small incisions to suction out the fat.

Liposuction Before & After Patient Miami

Liposuction Recovery & Aftercare

After the liposuction procedure, patients will experience swelling, some bruising and some minimal/moderate discomfort in the treated areas. Compression garments are used to help reduce these symptoms while the area heals. Patients can return to work and other regular activities as soon as they feel comfortable, which is usually after a day or two. Exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for at least one week. Early results are not very visible for two to three weeks and final results are apparent after at least three to four months.

Dr. Hunsaker will give you special instructions on how to care for your treated area and reduce the risks any complications after the procedure.

Will the Fat Come Back?

The results of liposuction are permanent, as long as patients maintain a healthy and active life. If substantial weight is gained after this procedure, the results may be altered but will still show better proportion than if the procedure had not been done.
