Liposuction Do’s and Don’ts

Written by Dr. Sean Maguire on October 12, 2016

Liposuction can remove localized fat deposits from “problem areas” around the body. Stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise can be effectively targeted with this popular cosmetic procedure. Louisville liposuction surgeon Dr. Sean Maguire is experienced at using liposuction to contour the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, upper arms, neck and chin. In this post, Dr. Maguire discusses the do’s and don’ts for people that want to get the most out of their liposuction surgery.

Do Find an Experienced Surgeon

Not only will your doctor perform the actual liposuction, he or she will also advise you on what type of surgery is the best option for your situation. Your doctor will also help you set your expectations and determine if liposuction is right for your goals. Choose a surgeon that has performed liposuction on many other patients with problem areas that are similar to yours.

Don’t Take Anti-inflammatory Medications

Medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen can slow blood clotting and increase the chances of bleeding during surgery. They may also interfere with the healing process after surgery. Be sure to discuss any medications or supplements you are taking with your doctor.

Do Have Realistic Expectations

Liposuction is effective for removing targeted fat deposits, but it’s not appropriate for every patient or every situation. Liposuction patients should be close to their ideal weight and should be aware of both the advantages and limitations of the procedure.

Don’t Neglect Your Recovery

You will experience some swelling and bruising after liposuction surgery. You should prepare yourself for some discomfort and avoid strenuous activity for a while. You may also need to wear compression garments around the treated area to reduce swelling.

Do Maintain a Healthy Weight

Liposuction is not a weight loss surgery. You should be at or near your target weight before surgery in order to get the best possible results. You should also continue your healthy lifestyle after surgery to avoid any major weight fluctuations that could affect your liposuction results.
