About Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat. While women and men agree that tumescent liposuction is an extremely effective body contouring procedure, it should not be considered a weight-loss method. Dr. Sinno recommends that you be at or near your ideal weight before undergoing the procedure. Liposuction can effectively sculpt and refine many areas of the body including:

  • Under the chin
  • Upper arms and armpits
  • Stomach area and waistline
  • Hips and thighs
  • Enlarged male breasts

You may want to consider additional plastic surgery procedures such as breast reduction, breast augmentation, a thigh-buttock lift, or tummy tuck to enhance your liposuction. During your consultation, Dr. Sinno will take the time to answer your questions and create a customized plan that will work best for you and your body. In the meantime, visit his Liposuction FAQ for answers to common questions.

What to Expect

Dr. Sinno performs liposuction on an outpatient basis using accredited facilities exclusively. If he plans to remove more than 5,000cc (approximately 10 pounds) of fat, he schedules the procedure at the hospital with an overnight stay. We commonly give you general anesthesia to make sure you are as comfortable as possible during the procedure. Local anesthesia and intravenous sedation are also possible alternatives, depending on the extent of the liposuction.

To remove your unwanted fat deposits, a small suction tube is inserted through very short incisions made in inconspicuous locations in the area to be treated. The excess fat is sucked out ("aspirated") through the tube. Dr. Sinno frequently uses ultrasonic liposuction technology to help "liquefy" the fatty tissue before it is aspirated. It allows easier aspiration of fat from difficult locations and promotes better tightening of the skin after treatment.

Recovery

After liposuction surgery, you will be sent home with the treated areas wrapped a compression garment, which you will usually need to wear for the first 4 to 6 weeks. The constant pressure helps reduce your swelling and discomfort after surgery. Patients often have pain, bruising, and swelling in the treated areas, which can be managed with ice packs and oral pain medication. Any initial numbness usually disappears within a few weeks.

To facilitate healing, Dr. Sinno advises most patients to start walking right away. You can take a shower or bath the day after the surgery. Resume your daily activities as you feel ready. However, avoid any strenuous activity, including aerobic exercise or weight lifting, for at least 2 to 3 weeks after surgery.

Results

Your final results will emerge over 2 to 3 months as swelling subsides. Our patients are usually thrilled with their enhanced look, in and out of clothes. Follow a sensible diet and consistent exercise routine to maintain your results.
