Rosenthal Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Dermatology offers liposuction and other body sculpting services to residents living in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, and Wellington, FL.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction, also referred to as lipo, is the leading body sculpting technique, playing a role in many different types of surgical procedures. Liposuction uses a small metal tube, called a cannula, to vacuum fat out of the body. This technique is used to remove unwanted body fat, contouring areas of the body to slim and enhance the appearance. Liposuction is one of the most versatile body contouring procedures because it can be used to address stubborn fat on nearly any area of the body. However, it is important to remember that liposuction is not an alternative to healthy weight loss. It is ideal if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and are close to your goal weight, but struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
The cost of liposuction will vary based on your unique needs and treatment goals. During your consultation, we take many things into consideration in order to design a personalized treatment plan that will optimize your results and treatment experience. Once this treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your liposuction treatment. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Can I Expect During the Liposuction Procedure?
Before a liposuction procedure, we will use anesthesia to ensure that you remain safe and comfortable throughout your treatment. Then, small incisions will be made where necessary, which allow us to access and remove the desired areas of fat. The location of these incisions will vary depending on your goals, but we make every effort to make these incisions as small and as few in number as possible. After incisions are made, a cannula will be inserted into the fat deposit. A vacuum pump will then suck the fat out of the body, eliminating it for good. Once the desired results are achieved, the incisions will be sealed and the treatment is complete.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Liposuction?
After liposuction, you will notice results immediately. The results from liposuction are long-lasting since the targeted fat is permanently removed from the body, but the treatment cannot prevent changes from developing in the future due to weight fluctuations or pregnancy. We encourage you to maintain a healthy diet and exercise habits to help your results last as long as possible.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Liposuction?
Due to the invasive nature of liposuction, you will likely have to take time away from work and other activities to recover. You may experience swelling, bruising, and other side effects for a few weeks before the full results of your treatment are noticeable. Dr. Rosenthal will inform you how to care for yourself during the healing process, which may include important instructions regarding hygiene, diet, and daily activities.
