One key to any successful surgery is the patient’s willingness to openly discuss concerns regarding the procedure. Before performing liposuction in Irvine, I take time to answer any and all questions.
Here are some common concerns I’ve heard from liposuction patients:
Concern: What will happen if I gain weight before or after my liposuction procedure?
Answer: If a patient gains a significant amount of weight between the consultation and the procedure, results might not match the goals set during the consultation. Although liposuction permanently removes fat cells, a healthy and active lifestyle must be maintained following the procedure to experience long-lasting results.
Concern: How long will recovery take, and what kind of results can I expect?
Answer: Recovery time depends on the extent of a patient’s procedure, but most people are able to return to work within a few days or a week. Liposuction should not be used as a tool for major weight loss, but patients with realistic expectations can expect to see a more contoured appearance.
Concern: Can I combine liposuction with other treatments?
Answer: Liposuction is an excellent procedure to combine with other treatments. I commonly perform liposuction for Orange County tummy tuck patients and for people interested in removing fat from around the neck during a face lift or neck lift.
Liposuction is an excellent way for people to remove excess pockets of fat from the body. Advances in technology have created a range of techniques and options to choose from, reducing the need for concern.
