Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic treatment that works to slim and reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat and improving the contours and proportions of your body. It may be performed as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other plastic surgery procedures, such as a facelift. Liposuction works by removing fat from your body using suction. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons will make small incisions into your skin, and insert thin, blunt-tipped tubes. These tubes will target fat deposits and remove them from your body via suction. There are several different methods of liposuction which may be used, ranging from traditional suction-assisted liposuction (SAL) to laser-assisted liposuction (LAL). When you visit our office, our oral and maxillofacial surgeons will discuss your goals and your body type with you to determine the best type of liposuction to help you achieve the look you desire. We will provide you with detailed post-op instructions for aftercare and recovery following your procedure. Please follow all aftercare instructions provided by our oral and maxillofacial surgeons, as this will aid in your recovery and healing process and help you achieve the results you are looking for. If you have any questions about liposuction surgery or wish to schedule your consultation with our experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeons, please contact our office today.
