What is Liposuction?
No matter how much you diet and exercise, you may still see pockets of fat that are keeping you from being confident in your body. Mississippi Center for Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the latest treatments to safely eliminate fat from the body. Lipo, or liposuction surgery, is a body contouring treatment that reduces fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks to create a more contoured appearance. This treatment can be blended to treat several body parts. During your initial visit, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Steckler will assess problematic areas on your body so you can attain your aesthetic goals. We will strive to help you look and feel your absolute best. For more information, schedule a consultation with Dr. Steckler at our Ridgeland, MS office today.
What Can I Expect from Liposuction?
Liposuction is performed in an outpatient setting while you are under general anesthesia. A very small incision is made. Then a cannula is used to loosen fatty tissue so it can be suctioned out. After the desired amount of fat deposits have been removed, Dr. Steckler will close the incision. Based on your treatment plan, your surgery could take 1 – 3 hours. In the separate recovery area, your post-op nurse will help manage any discomfort and care for your incisions until your discharge. You will need a few weeks to recover at home after your liposuction in Ridgeland, MS. It's typical to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and you can have the sutures taken out after 7 – 10 days. It's important to give your body time to recover and rest, so you need to go slow and follow Dr. Steckler's instructions when it comes to going back to work and beginning exercise again. You may see some changes after six weeks, but it will take 6 – 10 months before your results are complete.
