Are You A Candidate for Liposuction?
A good way to tell if you’re a good candidate for liposuction is if you have realistic expectations about the procedure. If you are healthy and a normal weight with extra fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise, you are most likely a great candidate. Typically, those who are a good candidate for liposuction in Austin:
- are over the age of 18
- have a normal weight but have fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise
- maintain a healthy lifestyle so the results are long lasting
- are not looking to lose a lot of weight but rather take care of excess fat
About the Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that reshapes and contours the body by removing stubborn, often exercise-resistant fat deposits. There are many different types of Austin Liposuction procedures, including: Traditional Liposuction, Tumescent Liposuction, Smart Lipo and Vaser Lipo. Each procedure is designed differently and they have differences in procedure length, downtime and results. Your choice of a liposuction procedure will depend on personal preference, health circumstances, treatment area, financial situation, and local availability of a procedure. The length and cost of liposuction surgery can vary from one to several hours, and from $2,000-$7,000 depending on surgical method, treatment area size, amount of fat being removed, and region where you receive the surgery. Possible side effects of liposuction can include swelling, bruising, numbness, discomfort, and mobility limitations. The best way to make sure you have all the right details about the procedure is to talk to Dr. Wilder about your Austin liposuction options.
Many factors can contribute to your liposuction recovery experience. A patient can typically expect several days of discomfort followed by a few weeks of restricted physical activity during the initial period following the procedure. Pain medication will be prescribed to you prior to surgery to minimize any discomfort. Many of our patients return to work within a few days but strenuous physical activity should be avoided for a few weeks. If you have any concerns about the recovery period, you should discuss it with Dr. Wilder.
