Liposuction is one of the most common surgical procedures performed by plastic surgeons. It is not a weight loss tool; it is used to remove fat from stubborn areas that are recalcitrant to exercise. At invMD Plastic Surgery we provide liposuction in Bend to eligible clients.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction procedures use a suction apparatus to remove fat from the body. The access sites leave scars that are less than a half-inch when healed.
What happens to the skin after liposuction?
After liposuction, if you have good skin elasticity, your skin will mold itself around the new contours. However, if you have poor elasticity, you may have excessive skin laxity or redundant skin in the target areas. You may need additional body contouring surgeries to trim away the redundant skin and improve the overall cosmetic results. Dr. Vial will carefully examine your skin quality and determine if you should proceed with liposuction or if you should consider other potential alternatives.
What is the recovery process after liposuction?
How you recover in the three months after your surgery determines the outcome for years to come. Dr. Vial will provide a list of step-by-step recovery guidelines after your surgery. After liposuction, you will have a binder with bandages in place. The bandages will be removed 48 hours after surgery for showering. You will wear a compression garment for 2 months following surgery. The majority of the swelling and bruising will gradually dissipate in 3-4 weeks. You can resume normal activities and work in 2-3 weeks, but you should avoid strenuous activities for 4-6 weeks.
