Liposuction involves making small incisions in the affected area and using a small thin tube (cannula) to dislodge and suction out fat deposits. After surgery, you may need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks for support and to reduce swelling and bruising.
Because the incisions are so small, and usually hidden in the body’s natural creases, they should heal to become barely visible. After several months, swelling should fully subside, revealing your slimmer, firmer contours.
Liposuction is suitable for under the chin, upper arms, breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. Dr Edinburg will only recommend Liposuction Surgery if he feels it is right for you, and will tailor an individual cosmetic surgery solution to suit you, which may be combined with other procedures for optimum body contouring results.
We has found that it is essential that only appropriate liposuction is done. Best results are achieved in localised areas, but it should be noted that general obesity cannot be suitably treated with liposuction. In other words, careful assessment is very important. In addition, a careful plan of where to perform the liposuction is essential in order to achieve a natural, enhanced effect.
