Liposuction Procedures in Hyannis & Plymouth
What Areas Of The Body Can Liposuction Treat?
When Dr. Jones and Dr. Loffredo perform liposuction on the body, the patient is under general anesthesia (you’re asleep). Unless the patient is having another procedure requiring an overnight (such as an abdominoplasty), you go home the same day. It is not painful, and most patients, partially depending on the extent of the surgery, describe the discomfort as moderate and well controlled with pain medication. Dr. Jones and Dr. Loffredo recommend patients take off two weeks from work for body liposuction. You do have to wear a compression garment (we provide these for you) or a binder (depending on the location of the liposuction) for at least three weeks. It is important to understand that the final medical result will not be complete until 6 months from the time of surgery.*
Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction
A single liposuction treatment can remove up to 4000-5000cc of fat.
Every liposuction patient is unique, and results vary. Depending on the amount of fat that is removed, many patients will see their final results somewhere between 3 and 6 months of the procedure.
Unless a patient is having an additional procedure, like an abdominoplasty, liposuction patients can return home the same day. On average, the recovery process lasts 3 to 10 days. Our plastic surgeons recommend that patients request one to two weeks off of work or family responsibilities.
Most liposuction procedures are done under general anesthesia, therefore patients do not experience pain or discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure surgeons can help patients manage any discomfort.
*Individual results may vary from person to person.
