What to Consider Before Liposuction

liposuction
Trying to decide if liposuction is right for you? When making this decision, many factors should be considered. Tried and true, liposuction offers a permanent way to rid the body of excess fat cells. A versatile procedure, liposuction can be performed almost anywhere on the body. With liposuction, Dr. Mouchantat will give you a slim and toned figure.

Is Liposuction Right for You?

Liposuction works best for those who are in moderately good shape. Liposuction best treats areas that are resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. Not for major weight loss, liposuction instead tones and contours your body. It is important to remember that liposuction does not remove skin; thus, Liposuction works best if you have firm, elastic skin.

You are not a good candidate if:
• You are obese
• Have a lot of stretch marks
• Have a lot of loose skin

Choosing the Right Doctor

Choosing a certified and experienced doctor is key to the success of your procedure. Dr. Mouchantat is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Mouchantat is committed to the highest safety standards.

How Invasive is Liposuction?

Liposuction is less invasive than most think. Using a small, tube-like cannula, Dr. Mouchantat carefully suctions out fat cells. Usually, incisions are small, only 3 to 5 millimeters (less than 1 inch) long. Many patients are concerned with scarring—Dr. Mouchantat is careful to strategically place the incision where it can be easily hidden.

Can Liposuction Aid in Weight Loss?

Liposuction is not meant for those wanting to lose a substantial amount of weight. You should think of liposuction as a way to reshape your body. That said, liposuction will help you lose some weight as the procedure speeds up the metabolism—allowing your body to burn calories faster. Weight loss is not immediate and is more of a long-term effect of liposuction. FYI—immediately following liposuction, you may notice an uptick in your weight, this is because during your liposuction procedure, Dr. Mouchantat injects a mix saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine—causing the fat to become ‘tumescent’, or swollen, which aids in the removal by firming the fat tissue.

What Can You Expect After Liposuction?

Going into your procedure, it is important to keep in mind that it can take up to three months for the results to fully show up. Although swelling usually subsides after one month—the increase in the metabolic rate means that your body will be adjusting and evening out for three to six months. What does this mean for you? Don’t be discouraged if you don’t like what you see immediately following your procedure. More of a fun fact: don’t rush out and buy all new clothes, your body is still changing.

At Mouchantat Plastic Surgery, we are dedicated to helping you. During your consultation, Dr. Mouchantat is careful to address all of your questions—ensuring that you are fully confident going into your liposuction procedure.
