If you are living with stubborn fat deposits that won’t go away despite your best efforts, you are not alone. Men and women struggle with regaining their youthful shapes for many reasons, even after incorporating a dedicated diet and exercise into their daily routines. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang guides patients through customized body contouring techniques, including innovative liposuction procedures. Dr. Mang passionately helps patients throughout Tampa, FL achieve gorgeous cosmetic results.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a minimally invasive body contouring technique that uses suction technology to remove unwanted fat cells with precision and ease. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Mang assesses your body and body mass index (BMI) while listening to your personal aesthetic goals to help you develop a customized body contouring plan.
What is liposuction used for?
Liposuction removes stubborn fat from just about anywhere on the body. Common target areas include the:
If a patient wishes to remove multiple fat deposits, Dr. Mang can typically remove all target areas in one outpatient session.
Am I an ideal candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction may be right for you if you:
Are an adult with unwanted fat deposits
Are at a healthy weight
Live a relatively healthy lifestyle
Have healthy skin laxity with minimal sagging
Have realistic expectations about liposuction results
Liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss and is only used to remove pockets of fat that won’t decrease with diet and exercise. Prospective patients may not qualify for liposuction if they have specific medical conditions or are pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult with Dr. Mang about your medical history and if liposuction is safe and right for you.
What is the liposuction procedure like?
Liposuction sessions are completed within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. Dr. Mang and his medical team properly sanitize each treatment area and administer local anesthesia to numb each treatment site. The liposuction cannula, or a thin tube, is inserted under the skin. Using suction technology, fat cells are removed and discarded. After the incisions are sealed, the patient may return home the same day for recovery.
Is there any recovery time after liposuction?
Patients should expect to make a full recovery after 1 – 3 weeks, depending on the number and size of each treatment area. For the first few days, patients will experience temporary bruising, swelling, and tenderness at each injection site. Dr. Mang may recommend wearing a compression garment for the first week to optimize healing. Stitches can be removed after 7 – 10 days, and patients can start to add slow walking and mild workouts to build up strength.
How can I make the most of my liposuction results?
Typically, patients will notice optimal liposuction results within 6 – 10 months. To make the most of your liposuction results, patients can:
Maintain a healthy dieting routine
Carry out regular physical exercise
Avoid massive fluctuations in body weight
Adhere to recovery instructions
Patients who experience weight changes from aging or pregnancy may compromise their liposuction results but may return to our office for maintenance appointments.
