What can liposuction do?
Liposuction is used to remove excess fat from specific areas of your body. Often combined with other Atlanta cosmetic surgery procedures, liposuction is an ideal way to restore a smoother, more defined body contour.
Atlanta liposuction is not an effective weight loss method, nor should it be considered a good alternative to a healthy lifestyle. Board certified Atlanta, Georgia plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Crispin can assess your cosmetic wishes to help you determine if liposuction can assist you in reaching those goals.
What types of liposuction does Dr. Crispin offer?
Dr. Crispin offers different types of liposuction to meet the unique wishes of each of our patients. Your options for liposuction include:
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction
- Power-assisted liposuction
The type of liposuction that will best provide you with your desired results will be determined during your initial consultation.
Is liposuction safe?
Liposuction is a common procedure performed on hundreds of thousands of men and women every year. Like any surgery, there are some liposuction risks such as excessive bleeding and infection. Other risks of this Atlanta body contouring procedure include asymmetrical results and contour irregularities. Dr. Crispin does not perform high-volume liposuction, which greatly helps reduce your risk for any of these undesirable outcomes.
Will fat removed with liposuction come back?
Once removed, fat cannot come back. This does not mean that new fat cannot accumulate. Following your liposuction procedure, you will want to adopt a healthy lifestyle complete with plenty of exercise and a well-balanced diet. Taking these small steps can help extend the results of your Atlanta plastic surgery procedure for a lifetime.
How long does recovery from liposuction take?
Your liposuction recovery will be unique to your body. Most people are able to return to work within one week and resume more strenuous activities within four weeks. The final results of your liposuction will be apparent within two to three months, after which any activity restrictions will be lifted. Dr. Crispin will work with you during your recovery period and always be available should you have any concerns during this time.
