FAQs

WHAT IS LIPOSUCTION?

Liposuction, sometimes simply referred to as lipo, is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat to improve the contour and proportions of your body. Liposuction is a procedure used to remove pockets of fat in different parts of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. This results in a slimmer, contoured figure and a boost in self confidence. However, it is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. Instead, it is ideal for patients who are at or near their ideal body weight but are struggling with areas of stubborn fat. Many areas of the body can be treated with liposuction, but the most commonly treated areas include the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms, back, and under the chin.

HOW MUCH DOES LIPOSUCTION COST?

The cost of your liposuction treatment at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan we develop for you. During your consultation, Dr. Eko will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that best suits you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment until you had the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.

WHAT IS THE LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE LIKE?

There are multiple liposuction techniques available, and Dr. Eko considers your specific treatment goals to determine the best liposuction treatment for you. With all liposuction procedures, we strive to use the smallest incisions possible to minimize the recovery period and scarring. Once incisions are made, Dr. Eko uses a small metal tube, called a cannula, to remove fat from the desired treatment areas. The duration of your liposuction treatment will vary depending on the size and number of the areas being treated.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE AFTER LIPOSUCTION?

After a liposuction procedure, you can expect swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treatment area. These effects can last for a few weeks, but they will heal significantly in the first week following treatment. During this time, patients may need to take time off of work and other activities in order to ensure a smooth recovery. Compression garments may be necessary during the recovery process.

WHEN WILL I NOTICE RESULTS FROM LIPOSUCTION?

Fat cells are removed during the liposuction procedure, so the results will be visible immediately. These results will become fully noticeable after any swelling has faded. Most patients are able to enjoy the results from their liposuction procedure within just a few weeks of treatment.

ARE THE RESULTS FROM LIPOSUCTION PERMANENT?

The liposuction procedure permanently removes fat cells from the treatment areas. Patients can enjoy long-lasting and even permanent results from liposuction, but these results may be impacted if the patient gains significant weight. We encourage patients to maintain a healthy diet and exercise habits in order to maintain their liposuction results.
