Liposuction is one of the leading plastic surgery procedures, both for its efficacy and its versatility. At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we are proud to offer liposuction to men and women in Powell and Knoxville, TN.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical body sculpting technique that is used to eliminate stubborn, unwanted fat from the body. Even with strict diet and exercise habits, body fat can remain unresponsive at times. If you are struggling to eliminate body fat, liposuction can be an effective solution. The liposuction treatment can be performed on many areas of the body, including the arms, legs, abdomen, back, chest, and even the neck. Liposuction is not an alternative to natural, healthy weight loss, but it can be an effective solution for achieving your cosmetic goals.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every liposuction procedure. This means that the cost of your treatment will depend on variables such as your personal preferences and unique cosmetic goals. As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit our office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer plastic surgery financing to help make our treatments more affordable. In addition, we offer CosmetAssure insurance with every cosmetic surgery, so you can go into your treatment with confidence and peace of mind.
What is the Liposuction Procedure Like?
Liposuction is performed with general anesthesia in order to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the procedure. The exact approach to treatment will depend on your treatment goals, which will determine the location and size of your incisions. Through these incisions, we will insert a small metal tube called a cannula. The cannula will dislodge fat and remove it from the body via a vacuum system. After the desired results are achieved, we will close the incisions, completing the treatment.
What is Recovery Like Following Liposuction?
After liposuction, you can expect some bruising and swelling around the treatment area. You may have to take a week or more off of work and other activities in order to heal and allow these effects to subside, although these effects will vary depending on the location and extent of treatment. You will have to avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, for at least a month after treatment in order to ensure a smooth recovery, and swelling may persist during this time. Part of your recovery may also involve wearing a postoperative compression garment, which will provide you with extra support and positioning while you heal.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Liposuction?
Liposuction removes fat from the body, preventing the removed fat cells from storing and accumulating fat. This means that the results from liposuction can be permanent. However, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy diet and exercise habits to ensure that their results last as long as possible, as weight gain can affect these results.
