What to Know About Liposuction

If you’ve been focused on working out to slim down areas of fat around your belly, thighs, or hips, and you aren’t seeing the results you’d like, Dr. Randall B. Weil has a solution that can make your life incredibly easier.

Liposuction is a solution that can remove fat that exercise and healthy eating habits just can’t seem to get rid of. It’s important to bear in mind, however, that liposuction isn’t a weight loss solution; rather, it’s a way to help those of you with fat that just isn’t able to get rid of it, no matter the amount of exercise or healthy eating.

How does liposuction work?

Liposuction works by inserting fluid into the areas where fat needs to be removed. Then, tiny tubes are inserted through barely-noticeable cuts. The fluid that was inserted helps remove fat more effectively when it’s sucked out through the tubes that were inserted.

Is it safe?

Generally speaking, liposuction is an incredibly safe procedure that has very few, rare negative side effects. Common side effects include temporary swelling, irritation, or baggy skin, but those issues resolve themselves quickly.

What’s the recovery time?

Recovery time for liposuction varies depending on how you heal after the procedure and the size of the area that Dr. Randall B. Weil treats. Generally, you’ll be able to return to work within a few days to a week.
