Liposuction in Miami/Broward

Dolls plastic surgery LIPOSUCTION

Liposuction, most commonly known by patients as “lipo” involves the removal of unwanted fat, shapes
specific areas of the body and remarks the body contour. It can treat areas such as: thighs, hips and
buttocks, abdomen and waist, upper arms, back, knees, chest area and specifically on the face, it can
treat cheeks, chin and neck. This is one of the most demanded practice in the field of cosmetic surgery,
not also by patients but also by surgeons, because it can be combined with other procedures to refine
the outcomes and obtain a more detailed body contour.
It can be performed either by local or general anesthesia. To choose the appropriate one, it is important
to take into account the patient’s overall health, the amount of fat that needs to be removed and the
opinion of the surgeon during the consultation.

What is the best age for liposuction?

There is not a specific age to have a liposuction procedure in your body but since it requires either local or general anesthesia, if you are underage, you should have the authorization of your parents or any other adult relative. It is recommended to have it done once your body has fully developed and once you have reach 18 or older, there is not a limit in age for elderly people if you are in good health
conditions.
 

Who can have it done?

This procedure can be done in both men and women who want to improve the shape of their body by
removing the fat stored in unwanted areas. Good candidates are mainly those who are close to their
adequate weight and have an elastic skin and a firm muscle tone.
 

What drugs are considered at risk for liposuction?

The patient must be healthy and not present any conditions. Women should stop taking contraceptive
pills, people who regularly take aspirin, ibuprofen or any other anticoagulant should stop taking them atleast 2 weeks before surgery.
 

Is liposuction safe?

Going under any surgical procedure implies some risks, but if you decide to have it done at Dolls Plastic Surgery that would be a smart choice, since safety is the main goal of our medical staff and our surgeons have more than 20 years of experience in most cosmetic practices with excellent results and feedbacks.
 

How effective is liposuction in achieving “my ideal body shape”?

Results differ from one patient to the other but commonly they can be seen after the first week.
Wearing a garment during most hours, following a strict routine of nutrition and physical exercise and
taking a good massage therapy are key to have a long- lasting and desired shape. Though liposuction

treats the removal of fat cells, if the patient does not adopt good eating habits, he/she is likely to gain
weight in other areas that were not treated during the procedure. Liposuction is not a method to lose
weight.

What if I have a liposuction and then I get pregnant?

Pregnancy does not affect the results of liposuction permanently, if a woman gets pregnant, she will
gain weight due to the pregnancy process but once she gives birth and loses the extra pounds, the
enhancement from liposuction will be visible again.
 

Does liposuction eliminate skin flaccidity or belly fat?

 Liposuction can be performed on a person with loose skin, but it is not intended to tighten skin.
However, the postoperative care is quite important for skin tightening, if you wear a garment for long
periods of time, you will obtain better results and the skin will retract. Some patients believe fat
accumulates only outside the muscle, when they actually have it inside the muscle. If so, it is removed
only with healthy routine and exercise, liposuction only removes the fat outside the muscle.
 

 When can I resume my everyday activities?

 To allow your body completely heal, you should not take strenuous exercise between 2-4 weeks after
surgery. It is recommended to talk to your doctor about when you can start working out again.
Regarding sexual intercourse, you should at least wait 2 weeks after your surgery is performed.
 

 Does liposuction leave scars?

 Since this procedure is done through minor incisions only to introduce the cannula inside the body, just minor scarring may occur but they fade away over time.
