There are many people that are unhappy with their lower abdominal section and unfortunately, diet and exercise simply does not work. That is when many people consider getting some type of procedure done to fix this area. Liposuction was the second most popular procedure performed in the United States last year. Liposuction is sought after for many reasons. This procedure can provide individually-tailored body sculpting results that will last for years to come. It is a minimally invasive technique that is done on an outpatient basis and requires only a few days’ recovery. When you are at your consultation for a liposuction procedure, make sure to ask these five questions:
Are you a board certified plastic surgeon?
Both of our doctors here at Ohio Plastic Surgery Specialists are board certified plastic surgeons. They have years and years of experience in the industry and are more than happy to discuss their past procedures, show examples and do whatever they can to gain your full and complete trust. Before your visit, learn more our board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Walter Bernacki and Dr. Christopher G. Zochowski.
Where will the procedure be performed?
Liposuction is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you will be home resting the same day, no overnight required. Before the surgery, the doctors will explain where the procedure is going to take place and the post opt instructions. You will need to arrange transportation home from the procedure. Our board certified plastic surgeons will go over at length pre-opt and post opt instructions. They are there to answer any and every question that you may have.
Will the results be permanent?
One of the reasons this is such a sought-after procedure is due to the fact that once the fat cells are removed, they do not return. Please be aware that the surrounding fatty tissue can still expand with future weight gain. As changes, can be expected in your body over the following years that may cause fat accumulation including normal aging, weight gain and pregnancy. Ask your surgeon how to best maintain your liposuction results for the long-term. Our surgeons will offer advice on retaining your desired physical contours and explain the chances of needing a repeat treatment in the future.
