What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure where excess fat deposits are removed from your body using a surgical vacuum. Dr. Arsenous can perform liposuction procedures to reshape different areas of your body, including:
- Upper arms
Am I a good candidate for liposuction?
If you have medical conditions that make healing difficult, liposuction may not be an option. Dr. Arsenous assesses each patient to ensure liposuction is a good fit. She’s also more than happy to discuss your health goals to find the right solution for reinventing your body.
What happens during a liposuction consultation appointment?
Dr. Arsenous reviews your medical history and discusses your cosmetic goals to determine which procedures work best. Additionally, she reviews your list of current medications and drug allergies during the consultation, and takes photos of the areas you’re focusing on for treatment.
Dr. Arsenous also answers any questions or concerns you have about the surgery and discuss recovery times based on specific treatments.
What’s involved in a liposuction procedure?
Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, you’re given anesthesia to keep you comfortable during your treatment. Dr. Arsenous makes small incisions in the treatment areas before inserting a small, hollow tube into the incision and navigated to loosen fat deposits. Finally, displaced fat is suctioned out with a syringe or surgical vacuum.
How long does liposuction recovery take?
After the surgery is complete, you’re required to wear compression bandages over the treated areas to control swelling and start reshaping your body. Some incisions may require the placement of a temporary drain to remove excess fluid during recovery.
You may be prescribed medications or topical agents to prevent infection and promote healing. Recovery time depends on the specific procedures completed, which Dr. Arsenous can discuss with you during your initial consultation.
