Losing weight is a big challenge for many people. Even if you manage to lose weight, you can’t force your body to lose it in specific areas. Many people end up struggling to lose excess fat in common problem areas like the stomach, arms, thighs, and hips. 

If this is an issue for you, fat removal surgery could be the answer. Dr. Bruno at Bruno Plastic Surgery knows how frustrating it can be working hard to lose weight and get in better shape, only to find your own body stubbornly working against you. That’s why he offers liposuction in NEPA as one of his many life-changing cosmetic surgery options.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess fat deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise. It’s not a weight-loss method, rather, it’s a body contouring tool used to sculpt specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and neck.   The procedure involves the use of a thin, hollow tube, known as a cannula, which is inserted through small incisions to loosen fat cells. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body, resulting in a smoother and more defined body contour.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Liposuction?

An ideal candidate for liposuction is an individual who is generally healthy, within their normal weight range but struggling with stubborn fat deposits in certain areas. It’s important to note that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise. 

Suitable candidates should also have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone. This is because liposuction removes the fat but does not significantly tighten the skin or tone muscle.  

Psychological readiness is also key. Candidates should have realistic expectations about the results of liposuction, understanding that while it can greatly enhance one’s appearance and boost self-confidence, it cannot achieve perfection. 

Lastly, candidates should be non-smokers, as smoking can complicate the surgery and the healing process. 

At Bruno Plastic Surgery, Dr. Bruno will ensure a thorough evaluation of your health status, medical history, and aesthetic goals during the consultation to determine if liposuction is right for you.

Discover What Liposuction Can Do For You 

One of the most common and popular cosmetic surgery procedures, liposuction provides a fat removal surgery technique targeting specific areas of the body. It uses different suction methods to remove stubborn fat from trouble spots where a person might struggle to lose weight on their own or improve an area of stubborn fat such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, calves, ankles, chest, back, chin, and neck.

The four main liposuction methods are tumescent liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction, and power-assisted liposuction. Tumescent liposuction involves an injection of saltwater to aid fat removal, after which the surgeon makes a small incision in the skin through which he can insert a slender tube known as a cannula. The tube is connected to a vacuum used to draw stubborn fat deposits out of the body. 

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction involves inserting a metal rod under the skin that emits ultrasonic energy which breaks down the fat for easier removal. Laser-assisted liposuction (Smart Lipo) does something similar using high-intensity laser fibers. Finally, power-assisted liposuction involves moving the cannula back and forth rapidly during the suction process to create vibrations which allows the surgeon to remove especially tough fat deposits with ease. 

Dr Bruno has performed many liposuction procedures on both women and men with excellent results.

Liposuction Surgery Recovery and Results 

Fat removal surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis, meaning that you will be able to return home the same day as your procedure. This could also be done with local anesthesia in the office.  During the healing process, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and soreness for the first few weeks. Your doctor will prescribe you antibiotics and may recommend wearing a compression garment for 1-2 months. Most patients are able to return to work and resume other normal activities in less than 2 weeks. 

The full healing process may take up to 3 months, after which you will notice a clear difference in weight loss. Depending on a variety of factors, including age and medical history, you may experience some loose skin at the site of the procedure, though this often improves over time as your body adapts and your skin regains firmness. While liposuction can remove current fat deposits, it won’t prevent new ones from forming. To make your new look permanent, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
