Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

Dr. Adesomo uses liposuction to slim and reshapes your body, improve your fat distribution, and reduce stubborn fat pockets in trouble areas, such as your:

  • Butt
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Stomach
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Upper arms
  • Inner knees
  • Ankles and calves
  • Cheeks, chin, and neck

One treatment may be all you need to get rid of fat and reduce fat deposits in problem areas for good. Liposuction produces more consistent results than noninvasive fat reduction methods and treats numerous larger areas during just one procedure.

When Dr. Adesomo performs additional cosmetic procedures, such as a tummy tuck or breast augmentation, he can often do lipo during the same procedure.

What should I expect during liposuction?

Dr. Adesomo carries out liposuction with the assistance of local anesthesia. He completes the procedure using tiny incisions and a thin hollow tube that loosens fat, dislodges it, and removes it from your body.

Once the fat is suctioned out, it won’t return as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What is recovery like after liposuction?

During your recovery, Dr. Adesomo might provide you with a  compression garment or bandage to wear to control swelling and compress the affected area. Also, he might place temporary drains in your skin to eradicate excess body fluids and prescribe medications to reduce discomfort and help with healing.

After several months, the swelling should go away, giving you a new and improved silhouette.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

Speak with Dr. Adesomo to see if you’re a good candidate for liposuction. Another cosmetic treatment might be a better option if you have loose, sagging skin or cellulite. You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you:

  • Don't smoke
  • Are within 30% of your ideal body weight
  • Maintain good muscle tone
  • Have firm and elastic skin
  • Don’t have a medical illness or condition that slows healing
  • Have excess fat deposits that won't go away with a healthy diet and exercise regimen

If you meet the above requirements and are otherwise healthy, Dr. Adesomo may recommend liposuction to help you achieve desired results and gain the confidence you deserve.
