"I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Lyle. I first met Dr. Lyle a month ago during a consultation to have my recalled Allergan Biocell textured implants (installed by a different surgeon) replaced for smooth wall implants. The experience from beginning to end was fantastic. I was greeted warmly, and I love that they offer you a warm robe in the exam room. This is a nice change from the usual paper gowns. Dr. Lyle himself is lovely. He's friendly, knowledgeable, humble and helpful. Fast forward a month later and I woke up to a swollen and painful left breast - this is a big concern with textured implants, so I called his office at 8 am and was told by reception to start making my way in ASAP. I saw Dr. Lyle at 9 am. He examined me and decided I needed an ultrasound and biopsy. He asked his nurse to call around and find me an appointment. By 10 am I was in the capable hands of the Breast Center in Raleigh. My biopsy was sent right to the lab.The next day, Dr. Lyle called me with my results, thankfully everything was negative. This experience was very emotional and stressful for me and Dr. Lyle and his team were incredible. I am so grateful for everything he has done for me - what a tremendous advocate! I am really looking forward to being in Dr. Lyle's capable hands through my breast revision surgery in the coming weeks. Thank you so much for everything, Dr. Lyle. It is impossible to articulate my gratitude."- A.B. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

"A+ Blepharoplasty with Dr. Glenn Lyle of RPSC! - Finally, my visual field has been restored after constantly struggling with sagging- hooded eyelids that were impacting my daily life such as: working on the computer with my head tilted backwards to see the screen, forehead fatigue causing aching, my eyelashes pushing down and finally the feeling that I had a "frame of dimness" is completely gone! I can see clearly now and the world is a much..."- B. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2019

Liposuction 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.
Liposuction 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 with Liposuction
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.
