Liposuction in Atlanta

If you work hard to stay in shape by eating well and exercising regularly, you may be frustrated about unwanted fat that just won’t go away on certain areas of your body. Weight gain associated with pregnancy can also put on unwanted fat in the abdomen (belly), hips, flanks, and thighs. And some of us just naturally carry excess fat in these areas.

Is Liposuction the Right Solution for You?

If you’re unhappy with the way that unwanted fat deposits make you look and feel, it may be time to consider liposuction surgery to finally achieve the slim, toned figure you desire. Liposuction can permanently remove fat cells from the hips, thighs, belly, back, or chest—as well as the face, neck, or knees—to improve your proportions and help you look younger and fitter. With this fat gone, you may find that your options for clothing open up—bikinis, skinny jeans, and tank tops are (finally) fun to wear. When you love the way you look, your self-confidence can increase too, which feels fantastic.

What is Liposuction Surgery Like?

Each of our plastic surgeons offers skill and expertise in performing liposuction. We’ll listen closely to your concerns and help you decide the best options to address them, including how liposuction can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Our doctors will then tailor a surgical plan to meet your expectations.

Because it is such an effective as a body contouring method, many patients choose to combine liposuction with other procedures, like Atlanta breast augmentation or as part of a Mommy Makeover to enhance the final outcome. Our board certified plastic surgeons are also experienced in performing revision liposuction to correct problems with prior liposuction surgery and sculpt the beautiful contour you are hoping to achieve.

Your surgeon will perform your liposuction procedure at our state-licensed and nationally certified surgi-center. He will use the gentle tumescent technique, which involves applying a special anesthetic solution to the treatment area just before removing the fat that helps to minimize post-operative swelling and discomfort. We use sophisticated anesthesia techniques in order to minimize your recovery time and reduce the incidence of post-op effects of anesthesia. The procedure usually goes quickly, and you can go home within a couple of hours after surgery.

How Much Time Will I Have to Take Off of Work (and Working Out)?

You will need to rest at home for about 3 days after surgery, but then you may return to your normal daily activity, including going to work. Initially, you will have to limit lifting, bending, and straining, as well as activities that cause blood pressure to rise. You may begin a gradual return to full activity, including sports and gym workouts, after about 3 weeks.

Most patients find that any post-operative pain is relatively tolerable, short-lived, and easily controlled with pain medication. However, it is important that you follow your surgeon’s instructions, including wearing compression garments. This will help to control swelling and maintain your newly sculpted shape.

Will Everyone Know I Had Liposuction?

Our surgeons pay close attention to how liposuction can enhance your overall aesthetic and take care to sculpt a shape that blends beautifully with your natural contours. While you’ll see a positive difference in the shape and tone of the area treated shortly after surgery, your results will continue to improve in the weeks following your procedure, as post-operative swelling subsides.

When performed by a skilled surgeon, it’s often pretty easy to go “under the radar” after liposuction, if you choose to. Others may notice that you look slimmer, fitter, and as though you’ve lost weight the old-fashioned way. When you’re wearing a bathing suit or working out in the gym, your newly contoured body will look naturally proportional. Scars from liposuction are small and are usually placed in less conspicuous locations.
