What is Liposuction?
Even with proper diet and exercise, you may still have stubborn pockets of fat that prevent you from feeling self-confident. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is proud to offer advanced treatment options that remove unwanted fat. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that reduces pockets of fat on the stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks to produce a tighter figure. Depending on your needs, we can use this procedure on multiple body parts at once. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will listen to your cosmetic goals and assess your body to determine if this procedure is right for you. Each patient will receive a personalized treatment plan after their consultation. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, our goal is for you to look and feel your best.

Is Liposuction Right For You?
Fat removal surgery is a great treatment option for patients who maintain a healthy weight but have stubborn areas of fat on the body. If you're considering liposuction, you should have healthy skin laxity because liposuction does not address saggy skin. It's also important to know that liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss. Women who want liposuction should be past pregnancy because this could compromise the outcomes. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will help set realistic expectations and create a detailed treatment plan.
Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure with general anesthesia. In one of our private, AAAHC-accredited operating rooms, we start your surgery by creating a small incision and placing a specialized tool called a cannula. The cannula makes it easier to loosen the fat and remove it. Once Dr. Mang has eliminated the fat, he will close the small incision with a suture. Based on the size and number of treatment areas, your surgery could last several hours. In the recovery room, your post-op nurse will help manage any discomfort and look after your incisions until your discharge.
What to Expect
After liposuction, you will need about 1 – 3 weeks of recovery. The amount of time is based on the number of treatment areas and how much fat we remove. Generally, you experience swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and in about 7 – 10 days, you can have the stitches removed. After undergoing liposuction, you should give your body enough time to rest and recover. When you can resume daily activities, you should remember to take it easy. To build up your strength, we recommend going for short walks and completing light workouts. You may experience changes soon after your surgery, but it will take 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is complete.
Look Fit and Toned
Fat removal with liposuction can help eliminate unwanted fat. Without the help of liposuction, you may find it difficult to tighten your figure. Depending on your cosmetic concerns, we can recommend various options for liposuction treatment. At your consultation, we will create a detailed treatment plan, determine the costs, and discuss any financing options. We welcome you to contact our office in Tampa, FL, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Mang.
