Liposuction Tailored for You
Dr. Campanile can perform liposuction to improve the appearance of almost any area of the body, including the abdomen, hips, waist, thighs, back, neck/chin, and upper arms. Very often, our patients want to slim down several places at once, but the procedure is just as effective for a single trouble spot as well. Keep in mind that liposuction is meant to help enhance body contour, and it’s not a substitute for losing weight through diet and exercise. Dr. Campanile will talk with you about how liposuction can be combined with healthy habits to keep you looking fit and trim for years to come.
Enhancements Worth Considering
Campanile Plastic Surgery offers tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction (VASERlipo™). Our patients will learn more about liposuction techniques during their initial consultation, and Dr. Campanile will make a recommendation about the method that is right for you after evaluating your body type and the areas you would like to improve.
Liposuction procedures are performed under general anesthesia, so you will sleep comfortably throughout the procedure. Dr. Campanile begins by making a few small incisions where he can insert the cannula, a thin medical wand that is used to break up and remove fat. A tumescent fluid is administered to the surgical area to reduce bleeding, increase comfort, and prepare the fat tissue for removal.
After fat is removed from all areas, the small incisions are stitched and the patient begins the recovery period. A compression garment may need to be worn for a few weeks after surgery to improve circulation and protect the quality of results. Most of our patients are ready to return to light activities after one to two weeks, with more strenuous activities added back in after three to four weeks.
