What is Liposuction?

Stubborn fat and bulges in areas, such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks, arms, and back, can keep you from looking and feeling your best. Sometimes, proper diet and exercise aren't effective in eliminating these problem areas and surgical intervention is needed. Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, double board certified in general and plastic surgery, offers body contouring by way of liposuction, one of the most popular surgical procedures provided at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery. This treatment is able to effectively remove fat cells from select areas of the body without damaging the surrounding tissues, reducing your stubborn fat and leaving you looking slimmer and more toned. If you'd like to find out more about liposuction and see if you're a good candidate, you can contact our Louisville, KY office today.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Liposuction?

The ideal candidates for liposuction are men and women who:

  • Have excess fat on their body
  • Have tried diet and exercise as a means to lose the fat in this area without success
  • Are not seeking an alternative to weight loss
  • Have overall good health

The Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction is performed in an accredited surgical center or at a local hospital as an outpatient procedure. The surgery generally takes between 1 – 2 hours to complete, depending on how much fat is being addressed, as well as how many body parts. Liposuction can be a surgery all on its own; however, it is usually paired with other surgeries for the best cosmetic results such as skin tightening procedures. 

What Can I Expect After Liposuction?

It takes a couple of weeks for you to recover from liposuction surgery, and scarring is generally minimal. If a well-balanced diet is maintained along with a healthy lifestyle, the results following liposuction surgery can last years — you can fully enjoy your slimmer, more trimmed figure.

Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction

How much does liposuction cost?
The liposuction will vary based on the technique selected and the number of areas being addressed. In your consultation, Dr. Nana Mizuguchi will develop your personal liposuction surgical plan to meet your needs and goals. He will also take into consideration your budget. Once your plan is developed, estimated costs will be discussed. To help make your cosmetic surgery easy to afford, Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery takes several payment methods and we can help you find low-interest financing.

What about nonsurgical liposuction?
There are many nonsurgical options to reduce fat. Some popular methods are CoolSculpting, UltraShape, Vanquish, Liposonix, and KYBELLA. While these nonsurgical procedures may help some patients reduce small amounts of fat, liposuction is best for most people. Liposuction surgery delivers more dramatic and consistent results. Ask Dr. Nana Mizuguchi about nonsurgical liposuction during your consultation. He will go over the benefits of both methods and help you choose which is best for your needs and goals.

What about cellulite and loose skin?
Surgical liposuction only corrects excess fat in the body. If you have loose skin, Dr. Nana Mizuguchi may suggest combining liposuction with a surgical body lift. Liposuction is often performed along with skin tightening surgery, like a tummy tuck, thighplasty, or arm lift, to produce the best results. To correct cellulite, there are several nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatments, including VelaShape, Cellulaze, VASER Shape, and Venus Freeze. During your consultation, tell Dr. Mizuguchi about all your concerns, like cellulite and loose skin, so your best treatment plan can be developed.

Will I have scars?
Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, incisions will need to be made and sutured. This will cause scars, but Dr. Mizuguchi does his best to minimize their appearance. This includes making small incisions in the natural folds of your body or in less visible areas. After your surgery, Dr. Mizuguchi or a member of his team will teach you how to care for your stitches so they heal flat and eventually fade.

Will my results last?
Before liposuction, it's important to be committed to maintaining your results. While liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in an area, you can still gain and lose weight. Dr. Mizuguchi suggests that you be at or close to your ideal weight prior to liposuction. Afterward, it's best to stay within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight. Pregnancy after liposuction will also impact your results; however, a second surgery, like a mommy makeover, may be done to refresh your appearance.
