What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a medical procedure in which your provider suctions out excess fat cells from problems areas, such as your:

  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Upper arms
  • Below the chin
  • Love handles

The I40First team can remove worrisome fat from just about any part of your body. Medical weight management at I40First helps you achieve your goal weight, but liposuction further eliminates fat pockets that linger despite having an ideal body weight.

Liposuction at I40First improves body contouring. If you’d like, the aesthetic experts suction out cells from areas of your body that contain excess fat and transfer them to your breasts, face, or buttocks.

Is liposuction right for me?

To determine if liposuction is the right treatment for you, the I40First experts examine your body in areas that concern you. They also review your medical history, check your vital signs, and complete a physical exam. To achieve superior results, you should be near or at an ideal weight before you undergo liposuction.

How should I prepare for liposuction?

To get ready for liposuction at I40First, follow your provider’s instructions. You might need to stop taking certain medicines or dietary supplements. Don’t smoke, and arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure if you plan to take a sedative.

What happens during a liposuction procedure?

Before liposuction, your provider numbs the treatment area. If you feel anxious, taking a sedative helps you feel relaxed during the procedure. The I40First team makes an incision, inserts a small tube (called a cannula) into the treatment area, and suctions out excess fat cells. 

They either get rid of the fat or transfer it to areas of your body that lack volume. Your specialist closes any incisions. The length of time the procedure lasts depends on the number of areas treated and whether you undergo fat transfer.

What should I expect after undergoing liposuction?

After the procedure, you can expect some redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness. Take medicines as directed, take it easy until your provider gives you the go-ahead, and wear compression garments if they ask you to. 

Over time, swelling associated with liposuction subsides. This could take several weeks or months. You can then expect smoother, leaner, aesthetically pleasing body contouring.
