Liposuction and Body Contouring: Your Questions Answered!

By Dr. Randy Rudderman
In Plastic Surgery Articles

Have you been dieting and exercising diligently without getting the body you want? Putting in the work and not seeing the results is frustrating. Muffin top, spare tire and thunder thighs are all terms we don’t want to use to describe parts of our body. We want toned, tight, and sexy to describe our physique at the beach. Pregnancy, genetics, and aging can affect where fat is stored on our bodies.

Men and women seek solutions to their body challenges.  The goal of liposuction is to reduce an area like the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, or waistline to create a smoother, more pleasing contour and balanced appearance. With any surgical procedure, patients have questions. We are addressing common questions patients ask.

Which areas can liposuction help?

Liposuction can treat the abdomen, hips, thighs, gluteal crease, pubis, back, arms, and knees.

Will my results last?

The success rate for liposuction is dependent on adopting a healthy lifestyle.  When liposuction is performed in combination with appropriate lifestyle changes, results are excellent, and levels of patient satisfaction are high.

What is my downtime after surgery?

Dr. Rudderman can determine how much downtime you will need during a consultation.  Recovery time will depend on how much liposuction is done and how many areas are treated. On average, patients return to desk jobs within 4-5 days.

How long do I have to wait to work out after surgery?

You will need to avoid sexual activity and all rigorous, strenuous activities until Dr. Rudderman tells you it is ok.  Downtime will vary based upon the procedure/or combination of procedures you require.

Will I have any stitches, drains or garments after liposuction surgery?

Sutures will be very small and are typically removed in 1 week. You will need to wear a garment for generally 3 weeks.  I can address all your questions and concerns during your complimentary consultation.
