Liposuction Plastic Surgery in Ocala, FL

Liposuction surgery, also referred to as lipoplasty, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to reshape certain areas of the body by removing unwanted fat deposits for a slimmer, more toned appearance. It is most successful to the hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. However, new advancements in techniques and surgical tools have allowed for liposuction to be used in nearly every part of the body, including the arms, calves, and back. During liposuction, your Ocala plastic surgeon will focus on removing and relocating fat in order to create a smooth, natural shape that enhances body curves. It can also help to tone certain areas, such as the abdomen, where exercise just doesn’t seem to be enough. Liposuction surgery is performed through small incisions around the area with unwanted fat. Cannulas, or small tubes, are then inserted into the incisions to remove the fat deposits.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction has become an increasingly popular plastic surgery procedure for the many benefits that it provides. Apart from removing fat from the body, liposuction can also:

  • Lessen Visible Scarring: Liposuction is among the most discrete types of plastic surgery. This is because the incisions are very small and performed in areas of the body where natural folds occur for easy concealment.
  • Evenly Distribute Fat: Liposuction can more evenly distribute fat throughout the body. This helps create smoother contours and can be used to complement other surgical procedures, such as breast augmentation.
  • Increase Confidence: Liposuction helps patients achieve their desired body shapes, increasing confidence, self-esteem, and even motivation.
  • Promote Physical Health: Liposuction can actually provide patients with health benefits. The surgery has been found to improve circulation by relieving excess pressure placed on blood vessels. It can also reduce the likelihood of developing diabetes and heart disease.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction surgery is best for patients who are a healthy weight and in good physical and emotional health but have unwanted fat deposits in localized areas of their bodies. Liposuction is especially helpful for patients who cannot lose the fat despite exercise and dieting. However, it is important to remember that liposuction is not a weight loss solution. The surgery is not recommended as the first step for significant weight loss.

What to Expect After Surgery

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure, meaning that patients are able to go home the same day after surgery. Recovery time will vary depending on the patient and his or her individual case. Factors such as the amount of fat removed or if additional procedures were needed for maximum results can make recovery time longer for some. For the most part, patients will begin feeling back to normal within a week, however, full recovery can last up to a couple of months. Your surgeon will direct you on what you can and cannot do until your body recovers and what measures you should take for the shortest recovery time possible.
