Liposuction removes undesirable, subcutaneous fat in isolated areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. These areas include the hips, thighs, abdomen, knees, neck, and arms. Liposuction is most successful in people with good skin tone who are near normal weight but have localized fatty deposits. It is not a treatment for obesity. It is intended to produce a more flattering figure by improving contours and proportions.
How Liposuction is Performed
The procedure involves small incisions through which a cannula or hollow tube is inserted. This tube is used to break up and remove the fat beneath the skin. Several areas can be suctioned at one operative setting although there is a limit to the amount that can be removed safely at one time.
Postoperatively patients will be bruised and swollen, and this will likely last several weeks. Pain and discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter medication. A compression garment is worn for several weeks to minimize fluid accumulation and facilitate skin settling. Our team will provide you with post-operative instruction to help you throughout your recovery following your liposuction in Athens.
During your consultation at Parker Plastic Surgery, our team can let you know what the expected cost of your liposuction in Athens will be. The price of your liposuction surgery will be based on the techniques used and the amount of work required. Financing options are available.
