Liposuction in Lexington, KY
Liposuction is a fat removal method offered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. William L. Dowden at Dowden Plastic Surgery for patients in Lexington, Georgetown, and the surrounding areas of Kentucky to remove unwanted deposits of excess fat to improve body appearance and to smooth irregular or distorted body shapes.
What is Liposuction?
As one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States today, liposuction has helped millions of people eliminate stubborn pockets of body fat to achieve a lean, contoured body shape. Dr. Dowden performs liposuction on most areas of the body where unwanted fat cells linger, including the hips, upper arms, thighs, torso, and back. Also called lipoplasty, this surgical procedure removes small areas of fat between the skin and muscle that is resistant to diet and exercise.
Benefits of Liposuction
- The results are instantly noticeable.
- You will have a firmer and more contoured appearance which will improve your sense of well-being.
- The effects of liposuction are permanent.
- It can also be combined with other procedures such as abdominoplasty.
Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
The best candidates for liposuction have localized deposits of fat in their abdomen, arms, thighs and/or neck. These pockets of fat are often resistant to the effects of even the best diet and exercise regimens, and may be the result of genetics.
How Does Liposuction Work?
During liposuction, Dr. Dowden uses a thin tube inserted through small incisions in the skin to gently suction out unwanted fat cells. He takes care to remove the correct amount of fat cells over a dispersed area to avoid creating the appearance of cellulite or ripples beneath the skin. Regular liposuction might be used in combination with other fat removal and fat redistribution techniques.
What to Expect From Liposuction
Patients who choose to have liposuction will have their surgery under local or general anesthetic at a hospital or surgical center. The length of the procedure varies depending on the areas treated. Liposuction is mostly done on an outpatient basis; however, some complex procedures may necessitate an overnight stay to ensure the comfort and safety of the patient. Recovery from liposuction is generally quick and uneventful. Most people experience moderate post-operative bruising and localized swelling, which dissipates within a few weeks. It is important to realize that although it removes unwanted fat cells, liposuction is not weight loss surgery and is not suitable for patients who are currently obese. As with all surgical procedures, patients should discuss their treatment options and risks with Dr. Dowden before pursuing liposuction.
