Liposuction in Charleston, SC
Even with good overall health and reasonable fitness levels, some people may still have problem areas on their body. These localized fat deposits can cause low self-confidence and disproportionate body contours. These stubborn fatty areas may caused be inherited genes rather than poor diet and no exercise. In these cases, many people turn to liposuction. Charleston, SC, patients can benefit greatly from this common cosmetic surgery procedure performed at O’Neill Plastic Surgery.
*As with any procedure and/or treatment the results may vary.
Liposuction slims and reshapes target areas of the body by removing localized fatty deposits, which improves body shape and proportion, and can ultimately enhance your self-confidence and image. These techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:
- Muffin top
- Love handles
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
- Cheeks, chin and neck
- Calves and ankles
- And other problem areas
During the liposuction procedure, Dr. O’Neill will make a small incision over the target area. A hollow tube (cannula) will be inserted through the incision. Dr. O’Neill will move the cannula in a back and forth motion to break up the fat cells. Once the fat has been broken up, it is sucked out with a vacuum tube.
Most patients experience swelling and bruising after surgery. Initial results usually appear in two to four weeks. Final results should appear in 2-6 months. Significant weight gain can cause recurrence of fatty deposits. Feel free talk to our team about your liposuction surgery questions before or after your surgery, or if you could include liposuction in a combination procedure (like a mommy makeover), which is extremely common!
