Liposuction in the Chicago Area
Liposuction, otherwise known as a suction lipectomy or lipoplasty, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country. This procedure changes the shape of your body by removing unwanted fat from certain areas, including the waist, buttocks, abdomen, hips, knees, cheeks, chin, thighs, and upper arms, especially when regular exercise and diet haven’t produced results. We use either local or general anesthesia to complete the procedure in one to five hours. The amount of time the procedure takes and the cost of liposuction varies based on the amount of fat removed.
A Number Of Liposuction Methods
We use several liposuction methods to complete a liposuction procedure in Naperville, Chicago, and Schaumburg, IL, including the super-wet technique, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and tumescent liposuction. Regardless of the type you choose, a small incision is made in an inconspicuous location. A small tube called a cannula is inserted under the skin and moved back and forth to break up the fat layer and remove it via suction. For super-wet and tumescent liposuction, fluid injection is used to facilitate fat removal. These options also reduce blood loss, provide anesthesia directly to the area, and reduce bruising. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy the fat by using extreme precision.
The Risks of Liposuction
Like all other medical procedures, there are risks associated, although they are uncommon. These risks can include:
- Delays in healing
- Blood or fat clots
- Fluid accumulation
- Perforation injuries
- Lidocaine intoxication
- Unfavorable drug or anesthesia reactions
- Liposuction Recovery
After your surgery, we use compression garments, drainage tubes, and antibiotics are used to speed up the healing process. We encourage you to walk as soon as possible and often allow you to return to work after a few days. However, strenuous activity isn’t recommended for at least a month. You will see results immediately, though you may experience even greater results as the swelling reduces within the next three months. Scars are typically small and difficult to see; however, there may be other changes, such as baggy or asymmetric skin, pigmentation changes, or numbness.
