The liposuction procedure is popular among both men and women due to it’s ability to target large or small areas of the body that are persistently unaffected by dieting and exercise. Because it’s results are immediate and long-lasting, it is widely used for sculpting virtually any area of the body. Dr. Bryan McIntosh regularly performs body contouring through liposuction on many regions of the body, including:
- Abdomen and waist
- Flanks (area surrounding pubic bones)
- Thighs and calves
- Neck and chin
- Male chest
- Underarms (bra rolls)
What is the Liposuction procedure?
Prior to your procedure during your initial consultation, Dr. Bryan McIntosh will take images of you from various angles. Using these, you and he will create a liposuction treatment plan.
On the day of your procedure, Dr. McIntosh will carefully mark the regions of your body designated for liposuction therapy. These areas will be treated with a numbing solution to prevent any discomfort during the procedure. Small cannula (narrow tubes) will be used to evacuate the excess fat that lies beneath the dermis. The tiny incisions, used to allow access for the cannula, heal rapidly within just a few days.
Liposuction therapy procedures are generally performed using IV sedatio
Can Liposuction be performed with other procedures?
What is the recovery process following Liposuction?
Because liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure, there is very little downtime, and any discomfort following the surgery is easily controlled with over-the-counter prescriptions. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities (and work) within 2-3 days.
What results may be expected from Liposuction treatments?
If a patient’s skin is not as elastic, laser liposuction treatments may be used to tighten the skin as well. Laser liposuction is especially helpful for older patients, but may be used for younger patients as well.
Who is a good candidate for Liposuction treatments?
Patients with stretch marks or loose folds of skin or excessive weight will not benefit from liposuction treatments. In these cases, tummy tuck surgery or lift surgeries (such as the neck lift, face lift, etc) will prove more effective. Our Bellevue office offers a full range of advanced technique face lift and body contouring procedures, including the tummy tuck.
