What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a form of plastic surgery aimed at removing unwanted fat to reshape your body. The specialists at Chicago Fat Doctor can remove the fat from your:

  • Chin, neck, and cheeks
  • Upper arms
  • Breasts
  • Abdomen
  • Hips, thighs, and knees
  • Buttocks
  • Calves and ankles

Once the fat is gone, it doesn’t come back.

What are the types of liposuction?

There are many ways fat can be removed from your body. Some of the most common procedures used for liposuction include:

  • Tumescent liposuction
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction
  • Laser-assisted liposuction

The specialists at Chicago Fat Doctor use the laser-assisted liposuction method to remove unwanted fat. During your body contouring procedure, laser energy is used to break up the fat under your skin and then a small cannula, or tube, is used to suction the loosened fat from your body.

One of the advantages of laser-assisted liposuction over the other methods is that the laser energy stimulates your skin to produce collagen, which is the protein that provides strength and resiliency. This added benefit helps tighten your skin after your liposuction to improve your overall appearance.

The specialists at Chicago Fat Doctor also offer liposuction and fat transfers to help improve your body shape. For example, your specialist may remove fat from your abdomen to trim your waist and then inject the fat into your buttocks to add more lift in a procedure known as a Brazilian butt lift.

What can I expect from liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that is done under anesthesia to minimize discomfort. After your procedure, your specialist wraps your treatment area in bandages to compress the area and help promote healing.

Your specialist provides specific guidelines on how to manage the treatment area after your liposuction. While you may be able to return to work within a few days after the procedure, you may be advised to limit some activities for a week or more as your body heals.

Because the fat is removed from your body during surgery, you should notice an improvement in your shape immediately following your liposuction, with continued improvements as the swelling goes down.

Your specialist at Chicago Fat Doctor recommends you follow a healthy diet and exercise program after your liposuction to help maintain your new shape.
