Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

If you struggle with unwanted fat deposits, liposuction can help you feel better about your body. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution but instead targets problem fat that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise. Many people who seek out liposuction maintain a healthy weight but may have genetic factors that contribute to these types of fat deposits.

Liposuction helps reshape your body to achieve the proportion and contours you desire. The procedure can be completed in many areas of the body, including:

  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Face

Liposuction is an effective treatment for healthy adults who have reasonable expectations when looking to change the shape of their bodies.

What can I expect during a traditional liposuction procedure?

Once you're sedated, Dr. Thakur makes a small incision at the treatment site. She inserts a small tube, called a cannula, and begins to manipulate and remove the desired amount of fat.

Once the liposuction is complete, Dr. Thakur closes the incision. In some cases, Dr. Thakur conducts liposuction in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure, such as a facelift or tummy tuck. Together, you will discuss which procedures can help you achieve your goals.

Recovery can take several weeks as swelling dissipates. You may need to wear a compression garment to encourage healing. With the proper measures, your results can be long-lasting, even permanent.

What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive fat removal procedure that requires less downtime and results in less pain than traditional liposuction. During a SmartLipo procedure, you remain awake, and Dr. Thakur administers a local anesthetic to the treatment area.

Through a tiny incision in your skin, Dr. Thakur inserts a small laser that breaks up fat cells, which she gently suctions out of the tube. SmartLipo also helps tighten skin in the process, so you don’t have to worry about any excess skin afterward.
