Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures today, liposuction is designed to eliminate fatty deposits in various areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks or neck. This is not a weight loss procedure but rather a sculpting of areas that are refractory to dieting and exercise. During the tumescent liposuction procedure, fluid is injected into the tissue to improve the efficiency of fat removal and to decrease the blood loss. Then, a cannula connected to a vacuum pump is inserted through a small 1/4" incision in a normal skin fold, and the area is suctioned. Today, advanced techniques using ultrasonic and power assisted cannulas have enhanced results. This procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, and the patient can resume normal activities within a week's time, but must refrain from exercising and sports for three weeks postoperatively.

Patients who desire liposuction usually are seeking to reduce the size of a protruding fat deposits throughout the body. This procedure is best for individuals who are seeking to reduce fat deposits and are in relatively good health. Age is not a factor in liposuction, except that older patients' skin may not be as elastic and may not yield the same result as a person with more elastic skin. Eliminating these deposits may also affect an individual's confidence, leading them to seek their own Liposuction in Oak Brook - Dupage County IL

A liposuction can help such individuals restore a thinner and fitter looking contour to their bodies. The specified portion of the body is made smaller to better match the shape of the patient. Dr. Tresley accomplishes this by removing excess fat through a vacuuming procedure. This not only helps to restore the physical appearance of the patient, but also restores self-confidence and respect to the patient.

Liposuction is a very individualized procedure in which your goals should be realistically determined and discussed with your plastic surgeon. Together you will determine what specific procedures will be performed. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with other procedures such as abdominoplasty to achieve an effect that better matches the proportions of the body. Once your goals have been determined you will set a date for this procedure and will be given instructions about how to prepare.

When the date for your liposuction procedure has arrived, you should plan on the surgery taking several hours or more depending on which procedures you are having performed. Several liposuction surgery procedures are available which can vary in cost and amount of time required, and while the method may be different with each procedure, the underlying principal is still the same. A small incision is made so that a tube can be inserted to the lower layers of fat which are then vacuumed out of the body. Incisions are strategically placed on the body to minimize visibility of scars.

The basic procedure for liposuction differs from other procedures in that the newer procedures make the operation easier to perform and reduce the pain and discomfort that happens after the operation. One such procedure is an ultrasonic lipoplasty which uses ultrasonic energy to first liquefy the fat before it is removed. This tends to make the procedure easier to perform and the recovery process happens more smoothly. Although newer procedures reduce the pain after the operation, some pain and swelling may still occur. Patients are usually mobile again after the procedure but it may take a few weeks before you feel completely normal again. Medications are available to further reduce the discomfort after the procedure. All procedures are performed with anesthesia to minimize any discomfort or pain.
