About Liposuction

Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center is proud to offer the latest methods to safely get rid of fat from areas of concern on the body. Liposuction is an enhancement surgery that removes fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks to produce a slimmer appearance. This fat removal surgery at our practice can be blended to treat several body parts. During your initial visit, Raleigh, NC plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle will examine areas of your body you wish to address so you can reach your cosmetic surgery goals. Our hope is that you look and feel amazing.

Ideal Candidates

Liposuction is a terrific procedure for men and women who are at a healthy weight, but have troublesome areas of fat that are difficult to rid with even the most healthy lifestyle. Individuals interested in liposuction should have healthy skin because liposuction does not address stretched-out skin. It is also important to know that liposuction is not a solution for losing weight. Women having liposuction should have no plans to become pregnant again as this could compromise the lasting outcome. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lyle will set realistic expectations.

Surgical Technique

This treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin and a cannula will be placed in the incision. The cannula is a special tool that helps loosen the fat as it is being vacuumed out. Once the fatty deposits have been eliminated, Dr. Lyle will close the incision. Depending on the number of areas being treated, your surgery could last 1 – 3 hours. In the dedicated recovery area, your post-op nurse will help manage any discomfort and care for your treated areas until your discharge.

What to Expect

You may need to stay at home for recovery from liposuction surgery for 1 – 3 weeks depending on the number of sections treated and the size of the treatment area. It is normal to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and you should have the sutures removed on day seven to day ten. What is most important after having any surgery is to allow your body time to recover and heal. When you decide to return to work after your procedure, you should remember to minimize stress and strenuous activity. To build up your strength, stick to walking and light workouts as recommended by Dr. Lyle. Remember, you may notice some changes after six weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is attained.
