Liposuction in Charlotte, NC
Liposuction is one of the most well-known plastic surgery procedures for eliminating fat. When the procedure was first introduced, patients experienced lengthy recoveries and inconsistent results. With today’s advanced liposuction techniques, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David F. Klein is able to achieve superb results for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What is Liposuction?
The goal of liposuction is to remove pockets of fat that cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise. Techniques have improved over the years, so men and women now achieve superior results. Lipo can be used on the abdomen, chest, thighs, arms, neck, face, breasts, calves and back — just about anywhere you have little areas of fatty bulges.
Benefits of Liposuction
Dr. Klein recommends lipo as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with facial surgery, breast enhancement and body sculpting procedures, such as male breast reduction, neck lifts and thigh lifts. By using the latest fat removal technologies, Dr. Klein is able to remove fat and sculpt the remaining fat to maintain a natural contour to the body and face.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Liposuction?
The ideal candidate for liposuction has:
- Localized fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
- Good elasticity of the skin
Because liposuction is not a weight-loss solution, you need to be near your ideal weight before having the procedure.
What Do I Need to Do Before Liposuction?
You might be surprised what liposuction can do for you, so we suggest that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Klein. He will listen to your concerns and offer guidance on your options.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Liposuction?
When liposuction is performed as a standalone procedure, it takes less than one hour in most cases.
What to Expect After Liposuction
The area that is treated with lipo will be tender, mildly swollen and bruised. The specific recovery time depends on many factors, so we prefer to provide these details during the consultation. We recommend that you have someone available to drive you home and stay with you for a few days.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Liposuction?
Liposuction does require very small incisions through which the cannula is inserted to remove the fat. In many cases, the incisions heal on their own without sutures. All surgeries develop scars, but the scars from your liposuction are very small.
When Will I See the Results?
You will see results immediately after the procedure. Swelling will mask the results somewhat.
How Long Will the Results of Liposuction Last?
Lipo removes unwanted fat, but you are still susceptible to gaining fat in other areas. You can extend the longevity of your results by following a healthy, active lifestyle.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost in Charlotte?
We know that liposuction is a great way to boost your confidence and feel great about your body, but medical insurance does not cover the cost of procedures that have a cosmetic purpose. You will need to pay out-of-pocket for your lipo procedure. For your convenience, we accept payment by cash, check, major credit card and CareCredit® financing.
