Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the world. Dr. Scott Haydon and his skilled team at the Austin Plastic Surgery Institute & Skin Care Clinic perform this procedure routinely for patients who wish to trim excess fat from certain areas of the body. Liposuction is the permanent solution for spot reduction and a contoured figure.
For many women, a healthy lifestyle of exercise and a sensible diet can’t rid the body of specific stubborn pockets of fatty tissue. Dr. Haydon and his team will meet with you during your consultation to listen to your concerns and understand the areas where you want to see change. Dr. Haydon’s personalized approach to each patient will leave you confident the results from liposuction treatment will deliver the look you want.
The first step involves placing a tumescent solution and then using a vibrating cannula, the fat is emulsified and liquefied. A separate cannula is then used to aspirate the fat and it is carefully measured to assure symmetry with the opposite side. Finally, there is a specialized cannula that vibrates and smooths out the contour. This assures that the most fat is being removed and that there is minimal risk of irregularity.
Once the surgery is complete, you’ll wear a compression garment on the treated area to help control swelling and support your skin in conforming to your newly contoured body. For many patients, down time from liposuction lasts less than a week. Those working indoor desk jobs can return to the office in 5-7 days. Depending on the extent of your procedure and location of the incision, you should be able to return to normal activities or more strenuous work in two to three weeks.
Your aftercare with Dr. Haydon will help you determine what level of activity is right for you. Each patient at our facility is treated with the utmost care and personalized approach, so your healing window may differ from others based on the many variables surrounding your procedure.
Liposuction patients can expect swelling and bruising in the treated areas. Results of the procedure may not be fully visible for 1 to 3 months after surgery, but nearly all discoloration and inflammation should fade in 2 to 4 weeks.
I am 16 days Post op Tummy Tuck/Lipo and breast Lift and everyday I am loving my results more and more. Dr. Gorman and his staff are super nice and caring. Scheduling an appointment is never an issue . I never have to wait no more than a few minutes in the waiting room or exam room. From Day 1, Dr. Gorman made me feel comfortable and at ease the day of surgery. He made sure to educate me on what I was wanting to get done and not once did he push me to getting anything else. Margaret is wonderful! She made sure I was taken care of the entire time. I would highly recommend Dr. Gorman to anyone who asks. Thank You Dr. Gorman and Staff.
Micro lipo surgery is a smaller scale of liposuction for more sensitive, focal and stubborn areas. The cosmetic procedure is a treatment used to contour and remove fat from the flanks, inner thighs, inner knees, neck, cheeks and jawline. Through a combination of tiny incisions, Dr. Haydon can remove small pockets of fat that can’t be reduced through exercise or diet.
Micro lipo is often performed to keep your body proportioned and achieve a balanced look. Micro-liposuction is an ideal solution if you want to contour or enhance stubborn areas. The treatment is used to enhance your overall facial appearance as well as other areas on the body.
