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, the perfect liposuction candidate is at or close to their target weight. Also, the patient should not have any uncontrolled medical conditions that could complicate recovery or raise surgical risks.
First, Dr. Katz will discuss your candidacy during a one-on-one complimentary consultation at his office. After reviewing a detailed medical history and inquiring about any previous surgeries he will then examine your self-described “problem areas” and ask you to identify your ideal outcome. Finally, he will explain a treatment approach for your case based on your unique needs and goals and answer any further questions.
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. Using the required compression garment helps control the swelling and compresses the skin to the body’s new contours. Furthermore, temporary bruising and soreness are also common after surgery. Complete recovery care instructions are provided after surgery.
During your recovery, you should rest your body as much as possible, avoiding bending, heavy lifting, or other strenuous activity. Additional appointments will be scheduled after surgery to meet with Dr. Katz to review your healing progress and let you know when to return to work, exercise, and other normal activities.
