Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. Dr. Pierce evaluates all candidates on an individual basis, noting qualities like the elasticity of the skin and the amount of excess fat to be removed, before he determines whether liposuction is a suitable treatment option.
The following areas may be treated with Liposuction:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
- Cheeks, chin and neck
- Calves and ankles
After patients undergo liposuction procedure, the treated area is temporarily swollen, bruised, sore or numb for a few weeks. It will be necessary to wear a compression garment around the treated area to help minimize swelling and to support the healing tissues. Patients can expect to take pain medication to alleviate any discomfort. It is very important that you rest as much as possible and avoid any strenuous activity as the body heals.
Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. If fitness and weight control efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you.
