How Does Liposuction Work?
The liposuction procedure is relatively simple. After creating a small incision near the fat deposit, a plastic surgeon inserts a narrow suction tube or cannula. This device is used to vacuum out excess fat, creating a firmer, trimmer appearance. After treatment, the patient wears a compression garment to speed recovery and reduce swelling. Sometimes, liposuction is performed along with a tummy tuck.
Liposuction at our Baltimore surgical suite is typically performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure, although patients who undergo a large volume removal may require a short hospital stay.
Liposuction Side Effects
Temporary side effects may include swelling, bruising, discomfort, and numbness. Most patients can return to work and non-strenuous activities in as little as one week.
It is almost impossible to provide an accurate estimate of liposuction fees unless the surgeon has had the opportunity to examine the patient. Factors that determine cost of liposuction procedures include the amount of time and effort required of the surgeon, cost of the anesthesiologist's services, and other related expenses, such as lab fees, compression garments, etc.
