Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
You may be a candidate for liposuction if you exercise and eat right, but still struggle with areas of localized fat. Liposuction can be used to remove fat from the following areas:
Keep in mind that liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss in cases of generalized obesity. Ideally, you are at or close to your target weight. You should not have any uncontrolled medical conditions that could complicate your recovery or raise the surgical risks.
Dr. Katz will review your candidacy during a one-on-one consultation at his practice. He will take down a detailed medical history and inquire about any previous surgeries. He will also examine your self-described “problem areas” and ask you to identify your ideal outcomes. Then, he will explain how he would approach your case based on your unique needs and goals.
What Does Liposuction Surgery Involve?
Dr. Katz uses gentle suction to remove the excess fat from the body. When Dr. Katz is finished, he will place a compression garment over the treated area to help the area heal more quickly.
What Is Liposuction Recovery Like?
The treated area will have some swelling after surgery. The compression garment will help to control the swelling and compress the skin to the body’s new contours. Bruising and soreness are also common, but only temporary.
During your recovery, you should rest your body as much as possible, avoiding any bending, heavy lifting, or other strenuous activity. You will meet with Dr. Katz so he can review your healing progress and let you know when to return to work, exercise, and other normal activities.
