By German Newall

Liposuction reshapes the body and improves its proportions through the removal of excess fat. Despite exercise and good eating habits, fat can be resistant to removal in certain areas due to genetics and the body’s hormonally-influenced tendency to store fat in certain areas for men and women. Liposuction allows you achieve the contouring you desire on almost any area of the body, including:

  • Lower Body (hips, thighs, and buttocks)
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Back
  • Legs (knees, calves, and ankles)
  • Arms
  • Neck and chin

The Liposuction Procedure

In a liposuction procedure, Dr. Newall makes small, inconspicuous incisions in the skin. After infusing a sterile liquid tumesced solution to reduce bleeding, bruising, and pain, he inserts a thin, hollow tube called a cannula. This allows him to suction out the fat in a manner that achieves the desired shaping goals. The length of the procedure can last anywhere from 1 to 4 hours, depending on the amount of fat that is removed and the number of sites that are recontoured.

Liposuction Recovery

After your liposuction procedure, you will be fitted with a compression garment that is worn for approximately 4 weeks to help reduce swelling and compress the skin to its new contours. Swelling may take a few months to fully dissipate. Once fluid retention and swelling subsides your improved body contour will become more evident. Most individuals find they are able to return to work after 4-7 days of recovery and exercise in 3 weeks.

Liposuction–The Results and Benefits

The results of liposuction are typically long lasting providing that a stable weight is maintained. For many individuals, liposuction inspires them to develop a healthier lifestyle that not only maintains their new shape, but also improves their overall fitness and feelings of confidence.

Liposuction / Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Procedure

Liposuction can be performed alone or along with other procedures one of the most popular combinations is with a tummy tuck. By combining liposuction and a tummy tuck procedures, Dr. Newall is often able to achieve extensive reshaping of the body as an alternative to a body lift. While liposuction removes excess fat, a tummy tuck addresses loose skin and weakened muscles in the abdominal area that can be due to large weight loss or pregnancy. A tummy tuck effectively restores a flat, smooth contour to the abdomen through the removal of loose skin and tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. Recovery for this procedure is typically 10-14 days.

FAQs:

Will liposuction help with cellulite?

Cellulite is persistent subcutaneous fat which causes dimples to appear on the skin. There are several treatments that may help to reduce the appearance of cellulite, but none have proven to be as effective as Dr. Newall’s invention known as CelluLipo.
