Liposuction, also known as “liposculpture,” “lipoplasty,” and “suction lipectomy,” is a procedure that shapes the body by removing diet-and-exercise-resistant fat from various parts of the body. Dr. Casas will discuss your areas of concern with you and together you will determine whether liposuction is appropriate to achieve your desired result.
Is Liposuction Right for Me?
Dr. Casas will emphasize the importance of diet and exercise prior to and following surgery since any type of liposuction cannot substitute for proper nutrition and physical activity. She will only recommend liposuction if you understand that proper nutrition and weight management after surgery is critical if you want to maintain the result.
Your Liposuction Consultation
During your initial consultation with Dr. Casas, she will explore with you all avenues of body contouring to find the most appropriate procedure. Abdominoplasty, or a “tummy tuck,” may more effectively meet your goals. Click for abdominoplasty photos. Dr. Casas will also discuss with you what type of anesthetic will be most appropriate for your procedure.
Recovering from Liposuction
The length of your recovery following your liposuction in Chicago greatly depends on the extent of your surgery. The day after surgery, you will need to move around a bit to promote blood circulation. Your compression garments and bandages will be removed within a few days so that Dr. Casas can examine the treated areas. Incisions are usually less than one-quarter inch and are hidden within skin folds or natural body contour lines. You will notice swelling and bruising, which is to be expected. Dr. Casas will ask you to wear special compression garments that you will typically wear for several weeks after liposuction. Often you may be able to return to work in just a few days. In many instances, you can resume most of your normal activities within one or two weeks. Dr. Casas will work with you to decrease the pain associated with liposuction and will customize a plan that will allow you to resume normal activities within a few days to a week. Post-operative instructions will also be provided following your liposuction in Chicago.
Recovering with Manual Lymphatic Draining
Manual Lymphatic Drainage, administered by massage, is used after each procedure to reduce swelling. The number of sessions is individualized. It is important that patients follow a healthy lifestyle leading up to and following procedures, including non-smoking, a healthy diet and daily vitamins.
