Liposuction Can Help You Achieve a Slimmer Silhouette
Both women and men in Little Rock, AR, visit Dr. Michael Devlin for liposuction to help eliminate excess fat by sculpting the body and providing a smoother, slimmer figure. Some people, no matter how hard they exercise, have areas of stubborn fat that is difficult to get rid of. As you age and get older, your metabolism changes and the fat becomes resistant to exercise and diet. Liposuction, also known as Lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure that helps to remove this unwanted fat. Liposuction is an excellent body contouring procedure, which is why it one of the most requested cosmetic surgery procedures by patients. .
Dr. Devlin has been performing Liposuction since the 1990’s and has performed thousands of procedures with outstanding results.
Liposuction is a procedure designed to remove excess fat from various "trouble spots" of the body. Liposuction helps to create a more proportioned figure and improve the overall shape and contour of the body. Once an individual has undergone liposuction, they will enjoy a slimmer, tighter looking figure. Unlike a tummy tuck, which focuses solely on the abdominal region, liposuction can be applied nearly anywhere on the body.
The most common areas for liposuction are:
- Bra Line
- Chin and Neckline
Dr. Devlin also specializes in mommy makeovers, which often involve liposuction in combination with other procedures such as a tummy tuck and breast augmentation to give a woman her pre-pregnancy body back.
The first step for a patient considering liposuction is to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Devlin. Dr. Devlin has been performing Liposuction since the 1990’s and has performed thousands of procedures with outstanding results. As with any other cosmetic surgery procedure, Dr. Devlin will assess your goals and expectations. During this consultation Dr. Devlin will want to make sure you are a good candidate for surgery, so come prepared to talk about your previous surgeries, as well as your health history. Dr. Devlin will determine elasticity of your skin, thickness of underlying fat and exact areas where you would like to see improvement.
Best Candidates for Liposuction
Liposuction is a great opportunity for both men and women to look their best. It is designed for individuals who are in fairly good shape, but have “problem areas” that do not respond to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates for liposuction are physically fit and exercise regularly, but can’t seem to eliminate that pesky, persistent bulge.
Remember that liposuction is not a replacement for diet and exercise, and it’s not a cure-all for preventing weight gain. You can still gain weight, even after receiving liposuction, if you fail to exercise and eat a balanced diet.
Dr. Devlin uses the tumescent technique for liposuction, as well as power- and ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Liposuction is typically performed under general anesthesia, except in some cases where oral sedation is used. Dr. Devlin will make several very small incisions into the problem areas, inserting a thin, hollow tube called a cannula, which breaks down the fat and gently removes it through suction. The length of the procedure will depend on the area treated, but for most patients it lasts between one to four hours.
Liposuction is done on an outpatient basis. Time off from work depends on the individual and most of the time this is just a couple of day. You may have mild pain after the procedure which is easily controlled by medication prescribed by Dr. Devlin. You will be given a special body garment to wear for 10 days after surgery. This garment helps to reduce the swelling that may occur. You will notice a slimmer more youthful figure immediately after surgery but full results from liposuction will not be seen for 3-4 months. For full benefits of liposuction you will need to be patient, as you will see a steady improvement each week.
Cost of Liposuction
