Liposuction Can Help You Achieve a Beautifully Sculpted Body with Defined Contours
Liposuction is a safe and effective cosmetic surgery that can help eliminate stubborn fat in targeted areas, such as the arms, hips, thighs, and abdomen that have not responded to diet, exercise, and bariatric surgery. The best candidates for this procedure include patients who are within 25 to 30 pounds of their weight loss goal. Performed by Dr. Marco Rodas at our state-of-the-art bariatric center in Tijuana, Mexico, this procedure can reduce excess fat, smooth selective areas, and sculpt your body to achieve your cosmetic goals.
The Liposuction Procedure
During an initial consultation, Dr. Rodas will carefully discuss the areas you wish to target and the results you hope to achieve with plastic surgery. He will take time to explain the procedure in detail, answering any questions or concerns you may have. He will also provide you with a list of pre-surgical and post-surgical instructions to follow to ensure you achieve a good outcome.
Your treatment will be performed at our advanced surgical facility. On the day of the procedure, the area will either be numbed with a local anesthetic or you will be given general anesthesia, designed to completely relax you and place you in a deep sleep. Once you are comfortable, tiny incisions will be made (no larger than half of an inch) and a small tube known as a cannula will be inserted into each incision. Dr. Rodas will move the cannula back and forth underneath the skin to break apart fat deposits and remove the excess tissue from the deep underlying layers.
Once the fat cells have been successfully removed and desired results achieved, Dr. Rodas will close the incisions with small sutures and apply the necessary bandaging. You will then be moved into one of our comfortable recovery rooms until released to go home. The overall length of the procedure varies from patient to patient, depending on the complexity of the surgery and how many areas are being treated. However, these procedures generally average about one hour per treatment area.
Recovering From Liposuction
It is not uncommon to experience some soreness and swelling for the first few days after surgery. Following your post-surgical instructions, resting, and taking medications as directed can help minimize discomfort and help you achieve a smooth recovery. You will be required to wear a specialized compression garment after your procedure to help your skin conform to your new features. In most cases, patients can expect to resume limited daily activity within the first week, and all other physical activity at the three-week mark.
Although some effects are immediately visible, as the swelling subsides, your results will continue to reveal themselves. Be patient with your body as it heals. Within four to six months, you will be able to enjoy your beautifully sculpted body.
