How Long is Recovery from Liposuction?

Liposuction is a highly versatile procedure that gives surgeons like Dr. David Mashhadian at Rodeo Surgical Art a great deal of opportunity to sculpt the body his patients have always wanted. It’s as much art as it is science, though advancements in medicine around liposuction have improved leaps and bounds in the last several years. Liposuction is a great way to get the body you’ve always dreamed of.

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is safe, effective fat removal for patients who’ve tried a healthy diet and targeted exercise to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. By inserting a small cannula into the lower abdomen, flanks, arms, thighs, or buttocks, Dr. Mashhadian suctions away unwanted fat and sculpts a lean, toned contour for the treatment area. It’s not limited to the torso, either. Virtually any area of the body—thighs, upper arms, even under the chin—can be treated with liposuction, and the techniques available to Dr. Mashhadian are highly customizable for the patient. The best part is that the body keeps to a fairly static number of fat cells once we’re through puberty, so the fat you lose during liposuction is gone. For good.

Am I a Good Candidate?

While most people qualify for a liposuction, the best results occur for those who don’t smoke, have good skin elasticity, are not far from their recommended weight, and are committed to maintaining their results with a healthy lifestyle after recovering. Start with a consultation with Dr. Mashhadian today.

What is the Procedure Like?

Dr. Mashhadian performs your procedure in the comfort of the cutting-edge procedure room at Rodeo Surgical Art with either general or tumescent anesthesia. Customizable options, like the addition of VASER ultrasound energy to smooth the fat removal process, are discussed thoroughly beforehand. VASER energy liquefies the fat cells for easier removal and less trauma to surrounding tissues. Liposuction takes between 60-90 minutes, and after a couple hours of monitoring, you’re ready to go home and recover in familiar surroundings.

What is Recovery Like?

Once you’re home, you’ll note some bruising and swelling, which are improved with compression bandages. Patients often resume regular activities within 1 week, often sooner with VASER ultrasound. Dr. Mashhadian’s Recovery EXL™ system takes recovery a step further. This proprietary combination of surgical technique and medication is so effective at reducing post-op discomfort, most Rodeo Surgical Art patients don’t require more than over-the-counter pain management. You’re on your feet within hours rather than days, and most of our patients report distinct surprise at how good they feel following even significant surgical procedures.

What Results Can I Expect?

It may take a few weeks or months for your slimmer silhouette to fully settle, but as it does, your clothes will fit better, and you may find yourself feeling prouder, walking taller, and smiling more. An investment in your appearance is an investment in your self-esteem, and liposuction is one highly customizable way to achieve that. With a relatively uncomplicated recovery, it’s no wonder liposuction has become one of the country’s most popular procedures.

Good habits can keep you looking healthy and athletic for the long-term, and Dr. Mashhadian is happy to help you develop good habits that will prolong your results and keep you loving your body. Dr. Mashhadian’s unparalleled skill and commitment to bringing the beauty of art and the innovation of science to the medicine of cosmetic surgery means your results will be the best they can possibly be.
