Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a fat-reducing surgical procedure that removes unwanted pockets of fat and improves the contours of your body. The procedure is refined and safe.

During the liposuction surgery, Dr. Gbulie gives you general anesthesia to make sure you’re fully unconscious and pain-free as he works. He makes small incisions across your specified areas of fat, then inserts a tiny tube called a cannula through them. 

He uses the tube for two purposes: loosening your fat and then suctioning it out. Dr. Gbulie performs this process very carefully so as not to disrupt any nearby organs.

The recovery process is only 24-48 hours long, and you can return to any and all activity after two weeks or less. A week after your surgery, Dr. Gbulie removes the stitches used to close the incisions during a follow-up appointment.

What areas can liposuction treat?

Liposuction allows you to contour the curves of your body to achieve a more desirable silhouette. You might find that your clothes fit better or look better on your body, and you can see your muscle tone more clearly. With liposuction, you can target the fat on your:

  • Belly
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Knees
  • Upper arms
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Cheeks

Dr. Gbulie also offers the option to use liposuction as part of your breast enhancement procedure in a process called fat grafting. 

You simply select the area where you’d like to remove some fat, and Dr. Gbulie transfers it into your breasts as a more natural-feeling substitute for silicone implants.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction surgery?

Despite its small incisions and short recovery time, liposuction is a surgery that isn’t for everyone. You’ll discuss the procedure, its limitations, and your own medical history during a thorough consultation at POSH Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

You may be a candidate for liposuction if you:

  • Are at or getting close to your goal weight
  • Have elastic skin
  • Don’t smoke
  • Are generally in good health
  • Have specific goals
  • Are optimistic about the results

If fat deposits on your body make you unhappy or self-conscious, it may be worth the time it takes to sit down for a consultation and discuss the possibilities of getting liposuction with a highly trained professional like Dr. Gbulie.

If you’ve tried everything to get rid of certain areas of fat that you can’t seem to lose on your own, don’t hesitate to reserve your liposuction consultation online or by phone at POSH Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery today.
