Liposuction may be a popular procedure in the cosmetic surgery world, but there’s still so much mystery and misinformation surrounding the surgery. If you’re considering liposuction to help you contour your body to its best shape, you want to have the best, most accurate information. Here are the answers to three of the most asked liposuction faqs.
How Much Weight Will I Lose from Liposuction?
First things first: liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. While you will lose a little bit of weight from the fat removed, it should just be a few pounds. You won’t see any great difference when you step on the scale.
When Will I See Final Results from Liposuction?
Immediately after liposuction, you might actually see an increase on the scale from bloating and fluid retention from surgery.
Liposuction results don’t happen right away. This is one of the most frequently misunderstood liposuction faqs. Right after surgery, you will be swollen, bruised and could be retaining fluid or bloating, which can obscure your results. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to heal — several months at least — before evaluating your final results.
What Will I Look Like After Liposuction?
What’s the most exciting liposuction faq? Of course it’s got to be, “What will I look like after lipo?” This is a very personal question that you and Dr. Campanile will discuss before your surgery. But on the whole, you can expect a more contoured, slimmed figure that gets you one step closer to your dream body. It’s not a total body makeover, but liposuction can be a great addition to a healthy diet and exercise to get you to your goals.
