Liposuction Baltimore: Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland

Liposuction – Lipoplasty

Do you have stubborn pockets of fat that never seem to diminish despite changes in your lifestyle? Unfortunately, sometimes the only solution to ridding yourself of these fat deposits is to manually remove them with liposuction.

Liposuction is a procedure used to sculpt specific areas of the body by removing unwanted fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. Typically, this fat is removed with the help of a small thin tube that uses gentle suction to achieve your desired results. With today’s advanced techniques, liposuction is an effective way to improve your body’s proportion, creating a more attractive, shapely figure.

Areas of the Body Commonly Targeted for Liposuction

If you think liposuction is just for the abdomen, think again! With today’s modern technologies, you can remove unwanted fat from anywhere on your body. Sagging skin and aging frequently create little bulges underneath the chin, above the knees, and other places that are almost impossible to banish with exercise and dieting.

Areas that are commonly targeted for liposuction in Maryland include:

  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Upper Arms
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • And more!

BLOG: How Does Liposuction Work?

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 up 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.

Types of Liposuction

Modern advances in technology have made liposuction both easier to perform and more comfortable for the patient. A growing trend is to liquefy the fat before attempting to remove it, which makes the removal process easier. Some of the types popular for liposuction in Maryland include:

  • Tumescent liposuction: A local anesthetic is used to numb the area of your body where the tube will be inserted. Next, an anesthetic solution is injected into the fatty tissue before traditional liposuction is done. Tumescent liposuction may not require general anesthesia (which makes you sleep through the procedure).
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction: This technique uses the help of ultrasound technology to liquefy the fat. This technique may be particularly helpful in removing fat from the upper abdomen, sides, and back.
  • Laser liposuction (or SmartLipo): This technique uses low-energy waves to liquefy the fat, which is removed through a small cannula. SmartLipo pioneered the laser liposuction movement, and is still popular.

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.

Within six to eight weeks the patient should be feeling as good as new, but Dr. Rosenberg will carefully monitor your progress to make sure you are comfortable and healthy during your recovery period.

Liposuction Costs

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 the 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.
