About Liposuction

Even though you try to lose weight, you may still have pockets of fat that are keeping you from feeling confident in yourself. Bloomfield Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the latest techniques to safely rid fat from certain body parts. Lipo, or liposuction surgery, is a body reshaping procedure that reduces fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks to produce a trimmer appearance. This treatment at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery can be blended to treat several body parts. During your initial visit, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Julio Sosa will examine problematic areas and design a treatment plan so you can reach your personal goals. We want you to look and feel the best you can be.

Ideal Candidates

Liposuction is a good procedure for both women and men who are at a healthy weight but have pesky areas of fat that have been hard to lose with exercise and diet. Those contemplating liposuction should have skin that is taut because liposuction does not address loose or sagging skin. It is also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer to losing weight. Women having liposuction should be past pregnancies as this could compromise the results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sosa will discuss realistic expectations.

Surgical Technique

Surgical liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin and a cannula will be placed. The cannula is a tube that helps loosen the fat as it is being removed. Once the fat deposits have been suctioned out, Dr. Sosa will close the incision. Depending on the number of areas receiving treatment, your surgery could last 1 – 3 hours. In the dedicated recovery area, your post-op team will help manage any pain and care for your incisions until your discharge.

What to Expect

You may need to recover at home from lipo for 1 – 3 weeks, depending on the number of areas treated and the size of the treatment area. It is normal to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and you can have the sutures removed in 7 – 10 days. What is most important after having lipo surgery is to allow your body time to heal and recover. When you are ready to return to work after your procedure, you need to remember to go slow. To build up your strength, stick to short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Sosa. Keep in mind, you may see some changes after six weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is attained.
