Advances in research and technology have dramatically changed the ability of plastic surgeons to precisely contour and shape the body using minimally invasive techniques. Liposuction is the most effective and popular option for the removal of stubborn pockets of fat over the body and the facial area.
There are different types of liposuction surgery methods in Newnan that are designed to target specific areas of the body. Our board certified plastic surgeons work with each individual patient to develop a plan to achieve the aesthetics desired.
Liposuction uses general or local anesthesia depending on the areas to be treated and the type of procedure. A special fluid is injected into the area to constrict blood vessels and enlarge fat cells. A tiny incision is made in the skin in that area, allowing a thin, hollow tube or cannula to be inserted into the fatty tissue.
Suction is then used to gently remove fat cells in the area, allowing precise body contouring and body sculpting to remove pockets of fat and create a smooth, even surface.
After this type of fat reduction surgery, patients experience mild discomfort that will subside in a few days. Most patients can return to work and light activities within three days, but strenuous activities should be avoided until cleared by the doctor, which is typically in a few weeks. Depending on the location of the liposuction, wearing a compression garment may be required to help reduce swelling and aid in recovery.
The results of liposuction in Newnan are visible immediately, but there are increased effects noticed once the swelling completely subsides. To find out more about this process, contact to schedule a consultation with our physicians.
