Learn More About Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or suction lipectomy, is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. This minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedure provides a custom, slimmed-down body contour so you finally can get rid of the stubborn fatty deposits that prevent you from having the curvy figure you want.
There are multiple techniques and devices that can be used for this body contouring procedure, including traditional liposuction, water-assisted liposuction, and Vaser liposuction.
The typical liposuction treatment involves local anesthesia to numb the fat deposits that will be accessed during the procedure. Liposuction is an outpatient procedure, meaning you’ll go home right after you’re stable after the treatment. Most liposuction patients need a few days off of work and social activities as they go through the healing process. Our Brandon Plastic Surgery office is 35 minutes from Wesley Chapel, 15 minutes from Riverview and 18 minutes from Tampa.
