Liposuction is a versatile cosmetic surgery procedure which removes excess fat from specified areas of the body. Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton is pleased to offer this popular treatment to patients who wish to firm and tone troublesome areas of the body. Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, can be performed on its own or as part of a comprehensive body contouring treatment, which can include other procedures such as tummy tuck, arm lift and more.
More about Liposuction in Boca Raton
Liposuction can help patients achieve their ideal physique by removing excess fat from a number of body areas, including the stomach, thighs, arms, neck, back, knees and buttocks. While the procedure can produce noticeable results, it is not meant to substitute for healthy eating and exercise habits, or weight loss surgery. Instead, this procedure is meant to provide the finishing touches for patients who are already at or near their ideal weight. Dr. Rafael Cabrera is an experienced Boca Raton liposuction surgeon who can help patients decide if the treatment is right for them. In addition to offering traditional liposuction, he also offers non-invasive liposuction options such as laser liposuction. Dr. Cabrera works with each patient individually to determine their aesthetic needs and goals, and provide the treatment they need to achieve them. Because every patient is different, the cost of liposuction can vary. We urge interested patients to contact Dr. Cabrera for a personalized consultation.
Liposuction can help patients achieve their ideal figure, fit into their clothes better and enhance their self-esteem. Patients who are well-suited for this procedure include individuals who:
- Are over the age of 18
- Are within 25 pounds of their ideal weight
- Are generally in good health
- Are not nursing, pregnant or planning to become pregnant
- Have good skin elasticity
- Have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of surgery
Liposuction in Boca Raton
Liposuction surgery can vary greatly depending on the number and type of areas being treated, as well as the specific type of liposuction being performed. During traditional liposuction, Dr. Cabrera injects a saline solution into the treatment area, making the fat easier to remove from the body. Then, the surgeon makes a number of small incisions and inserts a suctioning tube, known as a cannula, below the skin’s surface to break down fat and suction it out of the body. Once this is complete, the incisions are closed and the recovery process can begin. Patients who have undergone large-volume liposuction will stay overnight at the surgical facility, while some other patients may undergo liposuction on an out-patient basis. Plastic Surgery Specialists is pleased to offer thorough post-operative care, and is staffed with highly trained overnight nurses who can accompany patients home to ensure a safe and comfortable recovery. Patients can expect mild discomfort in the days following the procedure, and are given specific instructions from the professionals at Plastic Surgery Specialists of Boca Raton to ensure a quick and safe recovery. Patients can typically return to work, exercise and normal activities about one week after treatment.
