Liposuction is one of the most well-known procedures in cosmetic surgery, most likely due to its versatility and efficacy. Plastic Surgery Consultants offers liposuction to men and women living in Lexington County, Richland County, and the surrounding areas of South Carolina.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction, sometimes simply referred to as lipo, is an effective fat reduction technique for improving the appearance of persistent problem areas of the body and creating a leaner, more proportionate shape. Liposuction can be performed alone or combined with other body contouring options to achieve even more noticeable results and further enhance self-confidence. Many patients also notice some degree of weight loss as a result of their liposuction treatment.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Liposuction?
The hips, thighs, waist, knees, calves, ankles, upper arms, chin, and neck are common areas of concern that can often be successfully treated with liposuction. Liposuction helps to provide a better clothing fit, more defined figure, and improved satisfaction with overall appearance. In some cases, the fat removed during treatment can be used to augment or enhance other areas of the body, including the lips, cheeks or posterior.
How is Liposuction Performed?
Liposuction is performed with the aid of anesthesia to ensure that each patient remains entirely comfortable for the duration of their treatment. Small incisions will be made on various areas of the body depending on the desired treatment areas. Dr. Wassermann utilizes a tumescent suction-assisted technique to minimize discomfort, swelling, and bruising. This advanced method also provides enhanced fat-reduction results and speeds recovery. Dr. Wassermann may recommend additional procedures to complete the transformation of your figure, which can typically be performed in combination with liposuction.
How is Recovery Following Liposuction?
Most liposuction patients at our South Carolina center are able to return to work and other light daily activities in one week or less, and swelling dissipates gradually over the next several months.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
The cost of your liposuction will vary depending on your specific treatment goals. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Wassermann. During your consultation, you will work with Dr. Wassermann to develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. To help make our treatments accessible to those who need them, we accept a variety of payment options as well as financing through CareCredit®.
