Liposuction is one of the top cosmetic procedures in the United States. Both men and women receive this procedure every year. Liposuction slims and reshapes your body’s contour by removing unwanted, excess fat deposits. It effectively treats those stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise.

During the liposuction procedure, fat is removed through a cannula, which is a hollow medical instrument. Think of it like a metal straw that is inserted under the skin.
There are different types of liposuction, some more invasive than others. At Apex Medical Spa, we use vibration-supported liposuction, which is less invasive than more traditional methods. Vibration-supported liposuction is the modern way of surgical fat removal.
With this method, the cannula is moved axially in a fast vibrational mode. This serves in combination with the suction vacuum to microscopically and gently cut and remove fat tissue.
There are many benefits of the vibration-supported technique. First, unlike some more traditional methods of lipo, local anesthesia can be used. Secondly, vibration-supported liposuction needs less force to move the cannula and break up fat. This innovative benefit allows the doctor to work with higher precision.
Both men and women benefit from liposuction. Commonly treated areas for women include abdomen, thighs, waist, arms, buttocks, and back. Commonly treated areas for men include the chest, arms, back, and abdomen.
It is important to note that liposuction is not an overall weight loss method. An ideal candidate is someone who is close to their ideal body weight, but has a few localized areas of stubborn fat that do not respond to diet or exercise.
Are Liposuction Results Permanent?
As long as you maintain your weight, your results should be permanent. The adult body does not readily produce fat cells. So, unless you gain a significant amount of weight, the fat cells will not return.
If you do gain small amounts of weight, the remaining fat cells can increase in size. This can diminish some of the positive results achieved from the procedure. Therefore, even after the liposuction procedure, it is important to adopt a healthy lifestyle of good diet and physical activity.
When Will You See The Results?
You will be able to see a noticeable difference immediately after. However, average time to see the final results is about 3 months. Over the first few months, the treated areas will continue to show more improvements as the swelling decreases.
