Liposuction In Wyoming

What is liposuction?

Liposuction in Wyoming is a cosmetic surgical procedure which removes unwanted fatty bulges from areas of the body which are resistant to diet and exercise.

The fat is extracted with a thin rod called a cannula which is attached to a suction apparatus.

By inserting the rod through very small incisions made in the skin, the liposuction surgeon is able to remove the unwanted fat and thereby re-contour the body.

How long has liposuction been around?

Liposuction surgery has been practiced in the United States since the early 19805.

Since it’s inception, it has undergone many modifications in surgical technique, instrumentation and anesthesia.

These modifications have dramatically improved the cosmetic outcome of the surgery, limited complications, and shortened post-operative recovery.

Getting Liposuction With Doctor Mark E. Freeman, Wyoming Plastic Surgeon

Because of the success of liposuction and the great interest in it, liposuction has become the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States.

What is the “new liposuction technique” I’ve heard about in the news recently?

The tumescent technique is a state-of-the-art technique which has become the standard of care in liposuction. “Tumescent” is a medical term which means engorged.

The area to be liposuctioned is engorged with a solution containing the anesthetic lidocaine and the blood vessel-constricting chemical epinephrine. Engorging the area allows for easier and more uniform fat removal.

The epinephrine reduces blood loss and subsequent bruising dramatically while lidocaine eliminates pain during the procedure. For small procedures, the tumescent fluid mixture may be all the anesthesia required, and for larger procedures, a light intravenous sedation may be introduced for greater patient comfort.

Lipo Is A Very Popular Cosmetic Surgery Procedure

The use of lidocaine allows a lower level of intravenous sedation to be used which, in turn, decreases post operative drowsiness, nausea and pain.

Is liposuction a good way to lose weight?

No. Liposuction in Wyoming is not for weight loss. The percentage of a person’s weight which is made up of fat is controlled through proper diet and exercise.

Liposuction changes the shape of the body by removing unwanted fatty bulges. It is a very successful way of contouring the body for individuals who are within approximately 10% of their ideal body weight.

So I’m not going to be able to achieve my washboard stomach through liposuction?

By removing fat from the abdominal area you can definitely accentuate the abdominal muscles. However, a person has to exercise to build and define muscle.

Liposuction Does Not Prevent New Cells From Growing

You can’t make a person who doesn’t exercise look like they have great muscle tone. Liposuction can only remove unwanted fatty deposits; it can’t build muscle.

What areas of the body can be liposuctioned?

Just about any area of the body that has a localized accumulation of fat is amenable to liposuction.

Common areas are the hanging neck region, the back of the arms, breasts (males), abdomen, love handle area, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. Men usually request liposuction in areas above the waist while women tend to request liposuction in areas below the waist.

Once fat is removed from an area by liposuction, does it come back?

Scientific evidence indicates that fat cells removed from the body by liposuction do not grow back. The number and placement of fat cells in an individual usually remain constant throughout adulthood. Fat cells are like balloons, having the ability to store and release fat.

Liposuction Procedure By Dr. John L. Roussalis, Wyoming Plastic Surgeon

A person can still store fat in the fat cells remaining after liposuction surgery. However, if a person maintains a weight close to their normal body weight through proper diet and exercise, there is every reason to believe the changes in body contour achieved by liposuction will be permanent.

How long does liposuction surgery take?

Generally speaking, the procedure takes two to three hours. It depends on how many areas of the body are being done, the method of anesthesia and the speed of the liposuction

Is the patient awake during the procedure?

Except for very limited procedures, it is encouraged that the patient be in a state of light anesthesia administered bya licensed anesthetist to allow the liposuction surgeon to devote his time and attention exclusively to the surgery. If only a small area is being done, it can often be performed using only local anesthesia using the tumescent technique which does not require a nurse anesthetist or anesthesiologist.

How long is the recovery period after liposuction?

Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure. After the surgery, the patient is usually allowed to go home after 90 to 120 minutes of observation. The patient is expected to rest for a day or two without any strenuous physical exertion.

From the very first day the patientn is able to get up and walk, use the bathroom, eat, drink, etc. For procedures above the waist, patients can generally resume work activities after two or three days. For procedures below the waist involving the weight bearing areas of the legs, recovery takes a little longer and a week or so is recommended before resuming work. Physical exercise may resume in seven to eleven days after surgery depending on the region liposuctioned, the extent of the surgery and the patient’s individual recuperative ability. For all procedures, patients must wear a compression garment over the liposuctioned areas for approximately three to four weeks.

It Is Not A Simple Operation To Be Taken Lightly

What are the possible complications of liposuction surgery?

The most common complications are varying degrees of bruising and soreness. While everyone bruises differently, patients should expect some bruising.

Soreness and pain is a very subjective matter. For the most part, patients find the pain associated with liposuction surgery quite tolerable. Some people complain of only mild soreness while others experience pain requiring an oral pain killer.

People rarely require pain medication for more than two or three days. Soreness may last a week or two in areas above the waist and two to three weeks in areas below the waist. Blood loss is minimal. There is always the possibility of infection, although it is extremely rare. For women who have cellulite, the tumescent technique does reduce the degree of cellulite but is unlikely to eliminate it.

What are the scars like?

Again, everybody heals somewhat differently but the excisions made during liposuction surgery are usually less than one quarter of an inch long and generally heal with little evidence. Every effort is made to hide the incisions in natural skin folds and areas like the belly button and pubic hair so you have to really look for them to see them.

When can I expect to see results from my liposuction surgery?

Results can be seen as early as two to three weeks. Because of early bruising and swelling, significant results aren’t really seen until about two or three months.

Improvement continues for an additional two to three months as swelling from the procedure totally resolves and the scar tissue which forms in the fat compartment completely retracts.

Are touch-ups ever required?

A touch-up procedure may occasionally be necessary if an individual either elects to have more fat removed from a particular area or unevenness exists. Touch-ups are usually a very minor surgical procedures and are ordinarily performed under local anesthesia.

How does one choose a liposuction surgeon?

Word of mouth is the best possible endorsement. Get referrals from people who have had the procedure performed and are satisfied with both the results of the surgery and the care they received. It is important that the physician is board certified in their area of specialization. Find out how many surgical procedures of this kind the surgeon has performed. It is best to find someone who has performed this type of surgery on a regular basis for many years.

It is also important that you find someone who is not only qualified, but someone you feel comfortable with, who will answer all your questions and will be available to you. Although it can be difficult to evaluate a doctor’s surgical skills, the way a physician’s office is set up reflects not only that surgeon’s technique but also how you’re going to be dealt with as an individual before, during and after your surgery.

Can liposuction be performed on HIV-positive individuals?

Yes. HIV is not a contra-indication to performing cosmetic surgery such as liposuction. It depends, as it does for all patients, on the general physical health of the individual. Liposuction surgery can be performed safely on HIV infected individual’s who show no signs of illness. I would strongly recommend that that patient seek an individual who is totally familiar with HIV so that the surgeon knows not only how to deal with the important considerations of HIV but understands the nature of HIV and is able to answer the questions a person has concerning medications, side effects, post-operative recovery period.
