Targeted Sculpting and Shaping

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction helps individuals refine their figures by removing localized, unwanted fat deposits from various areas of the body. Fat cells are removed via a small incision using a narrow tube called a cannula. Liposuction is an excellent tool for sculpting the body for a more contoured and proportionate appearance. It can be performed on multiple body regions, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, neck, and more.

Liposuction is not a weight loss solution but rather a method to enhance contours by sculpting away pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is typically recommended for individuals who are at or near their ideal body weight and in good overall health. Dr. McGee can determine your candidacy for Lafayette liposuction and help you envision your expected results to plan a procedure perfectly tailored to you.

A Less Invasive Way to Contour

What are the benefits of Liposuction?

Liposuction offers many benefits, providing highly effective results with less invasiveness and downtime than many other procedures. It is also easily incorporated into a variety of procedures to refine results. Perhaps it is no wonder that liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries worldwide. Liposuction methods have consistently evolved over the years, making it a safe and effective tool in the aesthetic repertoire. Here are some of the key benefits of liposuction:

Fat Reduction for Body Contouring: Precisely sculpts away and removes fat deposits from various treatment areas, helping to achieve a slimmer, more contoured appearance.

Versatile Applications: Allows for precise fat removal, making it highly customizable to individual needs.

Minimal Scarring: Uses small incisions, resulting in minimal scarring that is typically discreet and easily concealed.

Quick Recovery: Has a shorter recovery period compared to more extensive surgeries, allowing patients to return to normal activities relatively quickly.

Boost in Confidence: Achieving a more desirable body shape can lead to increased self-esteem and body confidence.

Long-Lasting Results: Fat cells removed through liposuction do not typically return, provided a healthy lifestyle is maintained.

Adjunct to Other Procedures: Liposuction can complement other cosmetic surgeries, such as a tummy tuck, Mommy Makeover, lower body lift, back lift, thigh lift, arm lift, or facelift for comprehensive body transformation.

Dr. McGee will work alongside you to learn about your goals and determine whether liposuction can help you achieve them.

Deft Sculpting for Refined Results

Your Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction is performed using a combination of general and/or local anesthesia, depending on the specifics of the procedure. Dr. McGee creates small, inconspicuous incisions near the target areas. These incisions are typically less than a quarter-inch in size. She then infuses a tumescent solution into the treatment areas, which helps numb the tissue and facilitate fat removal. She then uses a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to gently loosen and precisely suction out excess fat cells. When the procedure is complete, the treated areas are often covered with compression garments to reduce swelling and support the healing process.

Minimal Downtime. Maximum Results.

Liposuction Recovery and Aftercare

To promote excellent healing during early recovery, you may need to wear a supportive compression garment in the treatment area. Dr. McGee will give detailed aftercare instructions on caring for incision sites and managing any discomfort after surgery. It is normal to experience swelling and bruising in the treatment area during the first week after surgery. People with desk jobs are typically able to return to work after about a week while continuing to limit activity levels. After six weeks, you will be cleared to return to exercise and more strenuous activities. As post-procedure swelling goes down, you will see your newly honed and sculpted contours emerge. We will check your healing at post-operative visits and we remain on hand throughout your recovery to support you in any way needed.

Liposuction Results

You will begin to see initial results from liposuction within a few weeks after the procedure as residual post-operative swelling subsides. It may take a few months for your results to fully refine themselves as your body heals and adjusts to its new contours. You will see the treated areas become smoother and more defined. The results of liposuction can be long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight through a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and a balanced diet. The fat cells removed during liposuction do not typically return to the treated areas. Because it allows you to sculpt specific areas of your body, liposuction is a wonderful tool for enhancing your figure in a way that is natural and authentic to you.
