About Liposuction

Some stubborn areas of fat such as love handles, thighs, abdomen, back, and flanks can be hard to eliminate even with a strict diet and exercise routine. Individuals who have been struggling with localized pockets of fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise often find liposuction to be the perfect solution. This procedure can be performed along with our tummy tuck surgery or other cosmetic procedures to give you a more contoured, slimmer body shape. Dr. Beam offers the advanced liposuction technology, tumescent liposuction, at Manchester Memorial Hospital, West Hartford Surgical Center, or Hartford Surgical Center.

How Does Tumescent Liposuction Work?

Dr. Beam has extensive training and experience with tumescent liposuction to deliver optimal, lasting results. The tumescent liposuction procedure involves injecting a lidocaine- and epinephrine-based solution into treatment areas to reduce side effects such as pain and swelling. Next, tiny incisions are made where the fat can be removed. A thin tube called a cannula is used to gently suction out the fat. We can even combine liposuction with another cosmetic procedure such as a tummy tuck to help you reach your personal aesthetic goals.

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

With tumescent liposuction techniques, patients can benefit from a shorter recovery time than ever before and minimal scarring, making it one of the safest, most effective liposuction options. Increasingly popular among people seeking to lose weight they haven’t been able to shed any other way, tumescent liposuction can give you a slimmer figure and do away with stubborn pockets of fat. You’ll look and feel better about your body and increase your self-confidence by finally taking care of the problem areas that have bothered you for too long. Losing fat can also improve your overall health, and reduce the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas.

Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

For patients who are in generally good health and are within 25 pounds of their ideal body weight, tumescent liposuction is an excellent option. Some people find it nearly impossible to shed those last pounds on difficult areas such as the stomach or thighs despite a healthy diet and proper exercise.

Lipo FAQs

Patients can expect to lose between two and five pounds, on average, from liposuction. However, it is important to remember that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a fat reduction procedure. With the fat reduction that comes with liposuction, many patients look and feel like they’ve lost greater amounts of weight, even though the number on the scale may not reflect the change in appearance that they’ve experienced.

Liposuction is performed with anesthesia, so you will not experience any pain during the procedure. Then, a small incision is made in the treatment area. Through this incision, your surgeon will insert a small tube, called a cannula. The cannula is connected to a vacuum system, which will gradually loosen and pull fat cells out of the body to produce the desired results. Once complete, the incisions will be sealed.

The liposuction procedure permanently removes fat. Therefore, the fat will not come back after treatment has concluded. However, liposuction does not prevent weight gain. If you don’t maintain healthy diet and exercise habits, it is possible that fat reaccumulates in the treatment areas and impacts the results of your liposuction treatment.

Many patients find that they have an easier time losing weight after liposuction. However, this is not exactly a result of the liposuction procedure. Instead, patients are typically successful in their weight loss after liposuction because they are so motivated by their results. Therefore, the increase in confidence that liposuction can provide can make it easier to lose weight, even though the treatment alone does not have any prolonged weight loss benefits.

Yes, like any surgical procedure, liposuction will inevitably leave scarring in the treatment area. However, we make every effort to place incisions for liposuction in discrete locations. This means that for most patients, the scars from liposuction are well-hidden.
