Liposuction


Liposuction is a routine procedure designed to eliminate excess fat from problem areas. Men and women who consider liposuction may struggle to achieve the toned physique they desire through diet and exercise. This procedure can custom-contour your body by targeting areas that have unwanted fat accumulations. Liposuction is the most efficient and effective fat removal treatment available.

Thinking About Getting Liposuction?

Effective Fat Removal

Liposuction uses gentle suctioning to remove fat cells from the body. This process permanently eliminates the targeted fat. Other fat-reducing procedures on the market are designed to destroy a portion of fat cells in an area, which the body then absorbs. This process can provide varying degrees of successful fat removal with the risk of inconsistent results.

Slimmer Appearance

Many patients choose liposuction because of the slimming benefits it provides. The accumulation of unwanted fat around the stomach, arms, and neck can contribute to a flabby appearance. Liposuction allows you to choose where you achieve fat removal to ensure the slimmest, most enhanced physique possible.

Toned Appearance

Liposuction is often utilized to achieve a more toned appearance. Fat can obscure the attractive definition that many men and women crave. While it is most commonly used to restore firmness and tone to the abdomen, patients can also undergo liposuction to achieve a more toned arm, thigh, and pectoral appearance. Tailoring your fat removal to your body’s natural contour will help you achieve the best definition possible.

Variety of Treatment Areas

Liposuction can be used to treat a number of areas where excess fat accumulation has prevented you from having the physique you want. It can remove unwanted fat from the abdomen, flanks, thighs, back, breasts/chest, arms, and neck. You can choose to treat just one area, or multiple areas can be treated in a single procedure.

Your Liposuction Procedure

Natural Looking

  • Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure while you are under general anesthesia
  • Limited incisions are created at the site of fat removal and are typically placed in discreet locations for easier scar concealment
  • A tumescent fluid is injected into the treatment area to help loosen fat
  • A small cannula, which helps minimize skin ripping or indentations, is inserted into the incisions
  • Gentle suction will harvest fat, and Dr. Wald will control the removal process to sculpt and create the best definition possible
  • Ultrasonic liposuction may be used during your treatment to help eliminate fat cells
  • Depending on the extent of correction required, the procedure can take an hour or more
  • Once the procedure is completed, the cannula is removed and your incisions are closed

You’ve just had a Liposuction! Now what?

After Liposuction, most patients experience the following in terms of the recovery timeline:

Immediately After

You will experience some bruising and swelling around the treatment site. Special compression garments are worn to minimize swelling, improve healing, and promote skin tightening. You may feel some minor discomfort, which can be controlled using oral pain medication.

1 Week After

You will be required to rest for the week following your procedure and avoid any strenuous physical activities. Stitches are removed within 10 days. Most patients can return to work during this time.

2 Weeks After

Most patients can begin to resume their regular activities, including exercise. Bruising and swelling should begin to subside.

6 Weeks After

At this time, your final results should become visible. All major swelling will have subsided, although minor swelling may last for several months. The harvested fat is permanently removed, and patients should use a healthy diet and exercise to maintain their results.
