Unnecessary deposits of fat can obscure the attractive contours that many people strive to achieve through diet and exercise. Genetics and lifestyle factors can leave you predisposed to accumulating fat in particular areas of your physique. While it is not a weight-loss procedure, liposuction can help you achieve the body contours and appearance you desire. Dr. Hochstein focuses on providing his patients with results that are flattering and natural to boost their self-confidence.
Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction
Q: What type of anesthesia is used during liposuction surgery?
A: You will receive general anesthesia during your liposuction to ensure your safety and comfort.
Q: Who is a good candidate for liposuction?
A: Patients considering liposuction should be in good health and have realistic expectations about their procedures. If liposuction is performed as a standalone procedure, patients should have good skin elasticity. Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure and should only be performed on patients who are close to their ideal weight.
Q: Where will my liposuction be performed?
A: Dr. Hochstein performs all of his procedures in his ACHA-accredited surgical facility that is fully equipped to provide the utmost safety for patients.
Q: Which liposuction technique is right for me?
A: The technique for your liposuction will be decided during your consultation with Dr. Hochstein. Anatomy, medical history, and desired results will affect which liposuction technique will be used for your procedure.
Q: How is fat removed during liposuction?
A: Liposuction uses vacuum suction through a cannula to gently remove fat from areas on the body.
Q: Will I require repeat treatments?
A: Many patients can achieve their ideal look after their first liposuction procedure. However, small touch-ups may be required after six months to treat additional fat that has settled following your procedure.
Q: How long will my results last?
A: Liposuction eliminates existing fat, but it cannot prevent new fat from forming. Patients who live a healthy lifestyle maintain the best results. However, if you do gain new fat, it is more likely to be evenly distributed throughout your body.
