- Surgical Process:
- During liposuction surgery, Dr. Beaty inserts a thin tube called a cannula into the skin through a small incision. The cannula then vacuums out fat deposits. Dr. Beaty will determine whether general or local anesthesia is ideal for your procedure.
- Healing Process:
- After liposuction surgery, many patients may resume normal activities within one week. Some swelling, bruising or numbness may occur. Dr. Beaty may recommend that you wait up to a month to resume intense exercise.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which localized collections of fatty tissue are removed. Dr. Beaty performs this procedure on a number of different areas of the face, chin, jowls, and neck.
Am I a good candidate?
Liposuction can be performed on both men and women. The procedure is most effective in patients of average weight who have skin that is both healthy and elastic. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with neck and face lifts.
