Ideal Candidates for Liposuction

Tumescent Liposuction is a great procedure for patients who are at a healthy weight, but have stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be lost with diet alone. Patients considering our affordable liposuction should have good skin laxity because liposuction does not address loose skin. It is also important to understand that liposuction is not a treatment for losing weight. Women having liposuction should have childbearing behind them as this could compromise the outcome. During your initial complimentary consultation, Dr. Carreon will discuss realistic expectations.

Surgical Technique for Liposuction

Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, in our AAAHC Accredited Outpatient Surgical Center. A very small incision is made in the skin and a cannula will be placed. The cannula is a tool that helps loosen the fat as it is being suctioned out using the latest power assisted fat extraction precision instrument, PAL-650 by MicroAire. Once the desired amount of fat deposits have been removed, Dr. Carreon will close the incision. Depending on the number of areas treated, your surgery could last 2 – 4 hours...

What to Expect with Liposuction

You may be in recovery at home from liposuction for a few days depending on the number of treatments performed and the size of the treatment area. It is normal to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and sutures can be removed on day seven to day ten. What is most important after having liposuction is to allow your body time to rest and heal. Once you return to work after your procedure, you should do your best to take it easy. To build up your strength, stick to light workouts, and go for walks as approved by Dr. Carreon. Keep in mind you may see some changes after six weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is attained.

Our practice also offers minimally invasive lipo options including Body-jet and Smartlipo since June 2007.

Will I have scars from Liposuction?

This includes making small, thin incisions in the natural folds of your body or in less visible areas. After your surgery, Dr. Carreon and/or a member of her team will go over how to care for your stitches so they heal flat and eventually fade.

Will my results last?
Before you have liposuction surgery, it's important to be committed to maintaining your results. While liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in your body, you can still gain and lose weight. Dr. Carreon recommends that you be at or near your ideal weight before having liposuction surgery. Afterward, it is best to stay within initial same weight and pounds to post-surgical weight. Pregnancy after liposuction will also affect your results; however, a second surgery can be performed to refresh your appearance, if needed.

Liposuction for men?
Tumescent Liposuction is not just for women — men can get this life-changing procedure as well. Similar to women, men develop fat pockets that cannot be eliminated by diet and exercise alone. When it comes to men, fat accumulates in the hip area, abdomen, chin, and breasts. Liposuction can help men who would like to decrease the appearance of stubborn fat, especially in these areas.
