Charlotte Residents Ask: Is Liposuction a Safe Procedure?

You’re considering liposuction, but you’re unclear of the risks and benefits that come with it. Do you want to know if it is a safe procedure? Are you concerned about the possible risks that it entails? At HKB Renaissance Plastic Surgery, you are in the hands of trained and expert professionals. Liposuction is a common procedure performed in the plastic surgery community that has been safely performed thousands of times.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is the vacuum removal of fatty deposits under the skin. The goal of this procedure is to remove fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise. This procedure can be performed in many areas of the body including the abdomen, chest, thighs, arms, neck, face, breasts, and back. This is a common procedure for men and women of good health.

Is it Safe?

Over the years, professionals have improved the application technique of liposuction. These improvements have led to an increase in superior results. This procedure is safe for patients who are in good health. Like any procedure, there are risks, but they are minimal.

How is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction is performed by using a cannula and a vacuum like tool to remove the excess fat from your body. This is not intended to be a weight-loss procedure, but you may notice a decrease in your overall body weight. Liposuction, in most cases, is a standalone procedure and can be performed in a small window of time.

What are the Benefits?

Men and women can greatly benefit from liposuction. Whether this is performed as a standalone procedure or combined with other plastic surgery procedures, the results are significant. Liposuction can be combined with facial surgeries, breast enhancements, body sculpting procedures, and body lifts. The benefit of liposuction is the improvement in your appearance.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Men and women in good health who suffer from stubborn pockets of fat are good candidates for this procedure. Like all surgical procedures, there are risks involved and you should be in good physical health before getting liposuction.

What is the Recovery Time?

After your liposuction procedure, it is common that you will notice swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the treated area. Your doctor will provide you with post-treatment care instructions. These should be followed carefully. You may resume your normal activities when the swelling and discomfort subside in a few days.
