Liposuction

Liposuction is an effective solution for getting rid of stubborn fat that has become resistant to diet and exercise. If you are struggling to lose those last few pounds, liposuction with Dr. Farrell can help you to slim down to your ideal size.

Why Consider Liposuction?

If you are currently living a healthy lifestyle and have not gotten positive results in certain areas of your body, this may be the procedure for you. Liposuction is intended to remove fat from specific areas of the body that are no longer affected by diet and exercise—such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs.

It is important to know that liposuction is not an answer for obesity or an alternative to diet and exercise. When paired with a healthy lifestyle, liposuction can help you to maintain a slimmer, healthier body for many years to come.

In addition to removing fat, liposuction may treat issues such as gynecomastia (or male breasts). If you believe liposuction may be the solution to your problem, ask Dr. Farrell if this procedure is your best option.

How Is Liposuction Performed?

General anesthesia will be used for the duration of your surgery. To begin your liposuction procedure, small incisions will be made close to where the fat will be removed. Dr. Farrell will insert a thin tube (or cannula) through your skin and into the underlying layer of fat. The cannula will be connected to a surgical vacuum, which will help Dr. Farrell to remove the excess fat cells.

Typically, your procedure will be performed on an outpatient basis, but this will depend on how much fat is removed and from where it is being removed. Dr. Farrell will assess your situation and recommend the best option for you.

What Is the Liposuction Recovery Process Like?

Dr. Farrell will provide you with a compression garment to be worn for the first few weeks after your procedure. This will help your skin heal properly and will minimize swelling. Surgical drains may be placed to prevent liquid from building up beneath the skin, but these will normally be removed within a week or so.

The good news is that you shouldn’t have to miss too much work to undergo liposuction in Mechanicsburg. Within 7-10 days of your procedure, you may get back to your job, but you should minimize any physically demanding activities until you are fully healed.

When Will You Notice Liposuction Results?

You may notice an immediate change in the shape or size of your body, but post-surgical bruising and swelling may cloud your results. Once your body heals, you will notice a slimmer, younger looking figure. By continuing to live a healthy lifestyle, you can maintain long-term results for many years to come.
