What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses suction to remove fat from various areas of the body. Typically, liposuction targets the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, arms, and neck. Liposuction is an excellent way to contour body parts to create a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing appearance. We don't recommend liposuction if you're looking for a way to lose weight drastically.

3 Benefits of Liposuction

During your initial consultation with our Fall River liposuction team, we'll sit down with you to outline some of the benefits you can expect to experience with liposuction. By giving you the information you need, you can decide whether liposuction is right for you. Some of the benefits of liposuction include:

  1. Removing Fat Cells: Fat cells are removed from the targeted areas during liposuction surgery. Pairing the procedure with regular exercise makes it easy to maintain your results for years to come.
  2. Improving Your Overall Health: You must have a healthy weight and body mass index (BMI). Liposuction removes unwanted fat deposits and improve your overall health.
  3. Boosting Your Self-Esteem: If you look in the mirror and aren't happy with the appearance of your body, it can negatively impact your self-esteem. Liposuction is an excellent way to help you achieve your ideal body shape and feel more confident in your own skin.

What You Can Expect

When you visit our office for your initial consultation, we'll begin by determining if you're an ideal candidate for liposuction. We'll conduct an extensive wellness exam that looks at your overall health and body condition. Some common traits of an ideal liposuction candidate include:

  • Being close to your ideal weight
  • You do not have life-threatening or chronic health conditions that can impair healing
  • You do not use tobacco

If you're an ideal candidate, we'll move forward with helping you understand what to expect before, during, and after your procedure. Our surgical team will work with you to schedule your procedure at our surgical clinic. We'll also explain your recovery time, as it can vary from patient to patient depending on their circumstances. Dr. Rex is more than happy to answer any questions you may have and walk you step-by-step through the procedure.

Liposuction FAQs

It's normal to have countless questions about our Fall River liposuction surgery. Our team is here to answer your questions and give you the information you need to decide whether liposuction is right for you. Some frequently asked questions include:

Is liposuction safe?

Yes. Our experienced team and board-certified plastic surgeon work hard to make our liposuction surgery safe. We are committed to making your procedure go as smoothly as possible, and we'll closely monitor your post-procedure recovery to help your body heal correctly.

Liposuction is the removal of undesirable fat in certain areas of your body. With liposuction, recovery time is short and does not address excess skin. A tummy tuck, however, is the removal of excess fat and skin to tighten weakened abdominal wall muscles. With a tummy tuck, recovery times are longer and focus more on the abdominal area of your body.

Our doctor will provide you with detailed instructions before your liposuction surgery. We recommend that you have a family member or trusted friend drive you to and from the surgical center and help you with postsurgical care. Additionally, we recommend you stop taking blood-thinning medication like aspirin before your procedure to help ensure that complications don't arise during surgery.
