Liposuction Plastic Surgery – Types, Cost, Recovery, and Risks

For over three decades, liposuction has been one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedures designed to achieve more aesthetically appealing body contours. Liposuction has helped millions of women and men to enhance their figures through targeted removal of unwanted fat pockets.

Liposuction may be performed as a standalone surgery or in conjunction with other procedures such as tummy tuck, breast augmentation or mommy makeover. Board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides liposuction to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.

Types of Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction cosmetic surgery may be performed using one of the following techniques:

Traditional Liposuction

This type of liposuction surgery may be performed when a large amount of fat removal is involved in one or more areas. The procedure involves manual manipulation of the stubborn fat cells with a cannula inserted through an incision, and removal of the dislodged fats with a suction pump.

Tumescent Liposuction

This is a highly popular liposuction technique, which involves only local anesthesia. The surgeon will inject a liberal volume of a solution including a local anesthetic and salts to cause the fat cells to swell. This makes it easier to isolate and remove them. The procedure involves relatively lesser downtime.

Ultrasonic Liposuction

In this type of liposuction, ultrasound technology is used to generate heat in the targeted fat cells and liquefy them. This makes it easier to remove larger and denser fat tissue in a relatively less invasive manner.

Laser Liposuction

Several advanced laser assisted liposuction surgery techniques are used today to achieve more precise and effective results. Laser based liposuction will involve minimal bruising and bleeding, reduce the downtime, and minimize the risk of scarring. Targeted results with laser liposuction can be achieved in more sensitive areas such as the cheeks, chin, jowls, neck, and arms.

Abdominal Etching

This is a unique type of liposuction aimed at enhancing the appearance of the abdominal muscles, and create the highly sought after ‘six pack’ abs. The muscles will first be outlined and then a thin layer of fat will be used to obscure the muscles. Traditional, ultrasonic or laser based liposuction may then be used to perform this procedure.

The Price Tag on Liposuction

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average fundamental cost of liposuction in 2014 in the US was $2,971. However, this figure did not include the inclusion of anesthesia, surgical facility costs, and other expenses that are germane to this procedure.

The overall dollar amount of the procedure may range from $4,000 to $8,000, depending on a number of factors. Patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive this procedure from facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Yavrouian.

Recovery

Depending on the extent of fat removed and the type of technique used, the downtime involved in liposuction may range from three days to two weeks. Initial pain and discomfort can be managed with pain medications. Results of liposuction will establish gradually over a few months as the swelling disappears completely and the healing is completed.
