Even with proper diet and exercise, some of our patients in Tampa, FL may still have stubborn pockets of fat. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang offers advanced treatment options that can remove this stubborn belly fat and help improve self-confidence in his patients. This body contouring procedure reduces pockets of fat in the stomach, thighs, buttocks, and hips to sculpt the body. Depending on a patient’s needs, we may use liposuction on many different body parts at once. During your consultation, he will listen to your goals and look at your body to determine if this is the right procedure for you. We create personalized treatment plans for each patient, so we ensure they get their dream results.

Am I a candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction is a good option for someone at a healthy weight in Tampa, FL who has areas of fat they haven’t been able to lose with diet and exercise alone. You should have healthy skin laxity since liposuction doesn’t help with saggy skin. Also, we recommend women wanting liposuction wait until they are done having children as another pregnancy can jeopardize their results. It’s important to note that Dr. Mang doesn’t recommend liposuction as a weight loss solution. This treatment must be used with a healthy diet and exercise to maintain results.

How does liposuction work?

This outpatient procedure is performed at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. Surgical liposuction is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. First, Dr. Mang makes a small incision in the skin and places a cannula inside the incision. Then, the cannula loosens the fat and removes it. Once the fat has been removed, he will close the incision with sutures.

Depending on the number of areas being treated, surgery could last several hours. In the recovery room, a post-op nurse will help manage your pain and discomfort, and look at your incisions before you’re discharged.

Liposuction recovery

Recovery can take from one to three weeks, depending on the size and number of areas treated. Swelling and bruising are normal for the first few weeks after surgery. After 7 – 10 days, you will have your stitches removed at our Tampa, FL office. Dr. Mang stresses that it’s important to give your body time to rest and recover after liposuction. To rebuild your strength, start exercising with short walks and light workouts. It can take 6 – 10months for your new body shape to be complete.

How many times can you get lipo?

Some of our patients do choose to get liposuction in the same area more than once. However, the best results occur the first time it is performed. You should wait at least six months before considering re-treatment.
