Liposuction is designed to give individuals the sculpted bodies that they have always desired. Certain areas of the body hold on to excess fat even though you maintain a strict healthy lifestyle. This stubborn fat will not go away no matter how many hours you spend running on a treadmill.
Dr. Lapuerta assesses each liposuction patient during their initial consultation to determine what areas should be treated. The most common treatment areas are the thighs, buttocks, stomach, upper arms, and knees. It can also be performed on the cheeks, chin, and neck.
Recovery from liposuction surgery varies depending on the extent of the procedure. You may feel some discomfort and fatigue but you will be given options for pain management while you heal. It is imperative that you give your body time to rest and recover, and you must replenish fluids immediately after surgery to prevent dehydration. Typically, it will take two to 10 days to recover, although recovery times can vary depending on the individual. You will begin to see results once the swelling subsides after surgery. Dr. Lapuerta and his staff will be happy to address any questions or concerns you may have while healing.
Liposuction provides wonderful results that make your body tighter and more toned, but that does not mean that the surgery is a replacement for routine diet and exercise. After fully recovering from your procedure, you should stick to a healthy diet and exercise plan. This is the only way to ensure your amazing results will last. We are happy to help you develop a plan for a new, healthy lifestyle before and after your plastic surgery procedure.
Whether you wish to target a small or large body area, Dr. Lapuerta is an expert in liposuction and will help you obtain your ideal body.
