What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic body sculpting procedures. Dr. Hueneke recommends liposuction for men and women who have small areas of fat that do not indicate the need for more extensive surgery. Liposuction may be combined with surgery to refine the results of your tummy tuck, gynecomastia surgery, and other body procedures.
Liposuction involves making small incisions in the skin to access the fat layer. The incisions are small enough that sutures are generally not required. A flexible tube is inserted through the incision, and the tube is used to dislodge and suction out the fat. Dr. Hueneke uses various techniques to help with the fat removal, such as using energy sources to melt the fat prior to removing it with the cannula.
What is the Cost of Liposuction?
The average cost of liposuction is $1,500 – $11,000, although this does vary by patient. We can discuss the details of your cost for liposuction at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.
What Are the Benefits of Liposuction?
- Removes small areas of fat
- Can be combined with body contouring surgery
- Generally does not require sutures
- Allows for a refined sculpting of body fat, such as in the abdominal area and chest where muscle contours should be accentuated
What is the Recovery Time for Liposuction?
When performed alone, liposuction requires little recovery compared to body contouring surgeries that require the removal of fat and skin. You will need to avoid placing pressure on the area for a few days or longer. Common symptoms after liposuction are tenderness, swelling, bruising, and moderate discomfort.
