Are you a candidate for liposuction?
Fat removal surgery is great for patients who have maintained a healthy weight but still have stubborn areas of fat on their bodies. If you're considering liposuction, you need healthy skin laxity since liposuction doesn’t address saggy skin. Liposuction isn’t a weight-loss tool. We recommend that you are within 15 pounds of your goal weight for at least six months before considering lipo. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will help you to set realistic expectations and create your custom treatment plan.
What can thigh liposuction do?
Many patients wonder what they can expect with thigh liposuction results. Thigh liposuction can contour the fat between the skin and the muscles of your legs, but it cannot change the shape of the leg itself.
How liposuction is performed
At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia in one of our private, AAAHC-accredited operating rooms. Your surgery starts with a small incision. A cannula is placed into the incision to loosen and remove fat. Once Dr. Mang has removed the fat, he closes the small incision with sutures. Based on the size and number of treatment areas, your surgery can last several hours.
What to expect with liposuction recovery
After liposuction, you will need several weeks of recovery. The amount of time needed to recover depends on the number of treatment areas and how much fat was removed. Swelling and bruising are normal for 1 – 2 weeks. After 7 – 10 days, your stitches are removed. After liposuction, you must give your body adequate time to rest and recover. To build up your strength again, we recommend taking short walks and doing light workouts. While you may experience changes soon after your surgery, it can take 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is completed in Tampa, FL.
