About Liposuction

The Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery offers the most advanced techniques to effectively rid fat from certain body parts. Lipo, or liposuction, is a body reshaping procedure that removes pockets of fat from the flanks, tummy, buttocks, and thighs to create a leaner appearance. This treatment at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery can be combined to treat multiple body parts. When we see you for your consultation, Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia will assess problematic areas so you can attain your personal goals. Our desire is for you to feel and look the best you can. Call today to schedule a consultation and find out if you're a good candidate for liposuction.

Ideal Candidates

Fat removal surgery is a good treatment for individuals who are at an ideal weight but have pesky areas of fat that have been hard to lose with exercise and diet. Men and women contemplating liposuction should have skin that is taut because liposuction is not a treatment for loose or sagging skin. It's also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer for weight loss. Females undergoing liposuction should be past pregnancies as this may compromise the results. At the time of your consult for surgery, Dr. Movagharnia will convey honest expectations.

Surgical Technique

Surgical liposuction is completed in an outpatient setting with the patient under general anesthesia. A punch-hole incision is placed through the skin so a cannula can be inserted through the incision. The cannula is a tube that makes it easier to work loose the fatty tissue that is being removed. After the desired amount of fatty tissue has been suctioned out, Dr. Movagharnia will seal the small incision. Based on the number of sections receiving treatment, your procedure may take several hours. In the separate area for recovery, your post-op team will assist you with managing any pain and look after your incision until you are discharged.

What to Expect

You may need to recover at home from lipo for several weeks based on the amount of areas treated and the amount of fat removed. It's typical to have bruising and swelling for one or two weeks, and you may have any stitches taken out 7 – 10 days after surgery. The most important thing to do following lipo surgery is to give your body time to rest and recover. When you are ready to go back to your job after your surgery, you need to remember to go slow. To increase your strength and stamina, try short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Movagharnia. Bear in mind you may have some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 6 – 10 months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
