How Does Liposuction Work?
Your LPS surgeon will develop a customized treatment plan based on your goals and target areas. In general, liposuction uses a tool called a cannula inserted through small incisions.
The cannula will break up the fat layers under the skin and suction out the fat for quick, effective removal. Advanced liposuction methods cause much less bruising, swelling, and discomfort than older ones and can be used almost anywhere on the body. Common treatment areas include the arms, thighs, abdomen, and under the chin.
How Much Fat Can Be Removed During Liposuction?
Liposuction will remove fat, but it should not be considered a weight loss procedure, and the amount of fat removed may be less than you would expect. Your LPS surgeon will balance attractive results with your safety since removing too much fat can increase your risk of side effects.
Liposuction at LPS will always focus on your well-being first. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that fat removal of more than 5000 milliliters increases the risk of complications.
However, your surgeon may remove a larger amount, especially if you have a higher BMI. Our excellent surgical technique will ensure your liposuction procedure is safe and effective.
