Full Body Liposuction

Have you tried diet and exercise but just can't get your body to achieve the contouring you’re looking for? Full body liposuction may be a surgical solution for you.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure offered by the Woodglen surgical team that can help sculpt your body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including your abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. Liposuction removes fat from your body using suction.

In recent years, improved techniques have made liposuction safer, easier, and less painful. These newer techniques include tumescent liposuction. This is considered the safest and most effective liposuction technique, with the quickest recovery time. First, you are given a local anesthetic to numb the area of your body where the tube will be inserted. Next, a large amount of an anesthetic solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine is injected into the fatty tissue before traditional liposuction is performed. The solution makes the fat expand and become firmer, which allows the tubes to move more smoothly under the skin.

Where is Liposuction Surgery Performed? The Woodglen surgical team offers liposuction as an outpatient procedure in the state of the art Glendora Surgery Center, conveniently located on Route 66 in the city of Glendora. In general, it does not require an overnight hospital stay unless a large volume of fat is being removed. Local anesthesia is used in most cases, and you may or may not be given a sedative to help you relax. If traditional liposuction is being performed, or if a large area or volume of fat is being treated, general anesthesia or deep sedation with a local anesthetic may be used.

After Your Liposuction Surgery After your procedure, the area of the body that was treated is tightly wrapped to help reduce swelling, bruising, and pain. Elastic bandages and tape, support hose, a special girdle, or another type of tight-fitting garment may be used, depending on which part of the body was treated. You may have to wear the compression garment or wrap for a week or more.

What You Should Know about Liposuction If you are like most people considering liposuction, you want to reshape one or more areas of your body, not to reduce body weight. Liposuction is typically used on "problem" areas that do not respond well to diet and exercise, such as the outer thighs and hips on women ("saddlebags") and the waist and back on men ("love handles"). The face, neck, abdomen, back, buttocks, legs, and upper arms are all commonly treated areas.

Liposuction is sometimes used in combination with other cosmetic surgery procedures, such as a "tummy tuck" (abdominoplasty), breast reduction, or face-lift areas.

Are You a Candidate for Liposuction? Liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that don't respond to traditional weight-loss methods. When you come in for a medical consultation with your Woodglen surgeon, your needs and desires will be discussed thoroughly and a plan will be recommended that is best for your body.
