Liposuction Recovery

Liposuction Plastic Surgery Recovery Orange County-Newport BeachLiposuction cosmetic surgery procedure can be performed using various surgical approaches. The recovery process can vary between two patients depending on the surgical technique used by the plastic surgeon, the extent of surgery performed, and the patient’s innate ability to heal. Liposuction Before & After Photos

As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Hisham Seify discusses various aspects of liposuction during the initial consultation with his patients, including the recovery process. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding areas may visit him for a liposuction consultation.

Estimated Time for Recovery

Working people are usually more concerned about the estimated recovery period. In most cases, the patient can return to work within a week, as long as the job does not involve excessive physical strain for the first few days. If the plastic surgery has been performed more extensively, involving multiple body parts, the patient may have to stay away from work for about two weeks.

As soon as the procedure is completed, the plastic surgeon will wrap the treated area with a compressive garment to promote faster healing and reduce swelling. After about a week, the swelling and bruising will begin to subside fast. However, complete swelling will disappear only after a few months. As new, improved body contours and shapes emerge gradually, the patient will increasingly feel better about the procedure and know that fantastic progress is being made.

Surgeon’s Instructions

The cosmetic surgeon will provide clear instructions to be followed during the recovery period. Healing can be safer and faster if the patient follows the recovery instructions carefully. The instructions may cover the following points:

  •       How to care for the wounds and the temporary drains.
  •       If and when to use pain relieving drugs and other medications to reduce the risk of infection.
  •       Specific signs to look for in the overall health condition and the treated areas, in which case the surgeon must be contacted.
  •       When to visit the surgeon for the first follow-up visit and for removal of sutures.

Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive liposuction and other cosmetic surgery procedures from Dr. Seify.

Questions a Patient Should Ask

Patients should feel free to ask any questions related to recovery and clear all their doubts before they leave for home after the procedure. Some of the common questions are as follows:

  • Will it be necessary to arrange for help in the first one or two days at home?
  • Will the compression garment have to be worn continuously and for how many days?
  • When will the surgeon remove the drain and sutures?
  • When will it be possible to resume regular activities or go back to work?

Other Issues Related to Recovery

In case of the use of tumescent technique during liposuction plastic surgery, the recovery may be relatively faster because the technique is more conservative. Pain or discomfort is usually well tolerated in case of liposuction, particularly if the surgery is performed over a single or limited area. Swelling or bruising in the treated area can mostly be concealed behind clothing. Therefore, the patient can visit the workplace or other places quite discreetly.

Liposuction FAQ

Liposuction Plastic Surgery FAQ Orange County | Newport Beach SurgeonLiposuction ranks among the more popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the US today. As an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Hisham Seify, addresses all the concerns and queries of a patient about liposuction prior to the surgery. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities may consult with Dr. Seify for liposuction and other plastic surgery procedures. The following is a list of frequently asked questions about liposuction, which will help answer some of the common queries of patients. Liposuction Before & After Photos

What exactly is a liposuction procedure?

Liposuction is a procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon on patients who are keen to reduce excess fat deposits in specific areas of the body, but are unable to achieve the desired results with diet or exercise. The procedure helps enhance the body contours by suctioning out excess fat deposits through surgical injections. The goal is to achieve a smoother body contour by reducing unwanted fat from areas such as hips, thighs, calves, waist, back, neck, or cheeks.

How do stubborn fat deposits take place?

Excess fat deposits in certain pockets of the body can occur due to various reasons. Sedentary lifestyle is a common factor, but in some cases, hereditary factors can also cause this problem. Women may develop stubborn fat pockets following a pregnancy. Without cosmetic surgery, it can get difficult to get rid of these fats just by diet or exercise.

What happens during the liposuction surgical procedure?

The plastic surgeon may perform liposuction using general anesthesia or intravenous sedation with local anesthesia. The procedure is mostly performed on an outpatient basis. A slender cannula tube is inserted into the targeted area of the body through an incision. A specialized suction pump is used to bring out the targeted fat cells from the deeper layers of the area. The incisions are then closed with sutures or skin adhesive.

Which is the popular technique for liposuction?

One of the more popular techniques to perform liposuction plastic surgery is tumescent liposuction. This technique is designed to achieve effective results with a more conservative surgery. It avoids the use of general anesthesia, and manages to remove significant amounts of targeted fat with minimal or no blood loss. Dr. Seify will discuss various treatment options with his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

Are there other techniques available to perform liposuction?

Some cosmetic surgeons may use laser or ultrasound assisted techniques to perform liposuction, apart from the commonly used tumescent liposuction technique. In each case, the surgeon will evaluate various factors such as the patient’s condition, their aesthetic goals and history of previous surgeries before choosing the most appropriate technique.

How long with the results of liposuction last?

Liposuction results are permanent in a clinical sense because the fat cells that are once dislodged surgically will not grow back in the same place. However, this does not mean that liposuction can be a substitute for a balanced diet or exercise. Patients who maintain an active and healthy lifestyle will be able to enjoy the results of liposuction for a long time to come, perhaps indefinitely.

Factors that Determine the Cost

The cost of liposuction will differ between two practices, and sometimes may even differ between two patients at the same practice. The following are responsible for determining the overall cost of surgery:

Where the Practice is Located

Practice location can make a difference to the average cost of liposuction plastic surgery. The cost of living can vary from one place to another, and it can impact the average cost of most types of products and services. For instance, the cost of liposuction in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and nearby areas may not be the same as the cost of the procedure in Phoenix.

Surgeon’s Fee

The fee of the plastic surgeon may vary according to their qualifications, experience and reputation in the field of liposuction and similar procedures. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recommends that patients should choose the most appropriate surgeon for their needs, while treating the surgeon’s fee only as a secondary factor of consideration in such a decision.

Costs of Anesthesia and Surgical Facility

If the liposuction cosmetic surgery is performed under general anesthesia, the fee charged by the anesthesiologist may depend on their acumen and experience. The costs of the operating room may vary depending on the kind of equipment, facilities, and experience staff is available at a particular location.

Complexity of the Procedure

In some cases, only a minor liposuction surgery may be involved if the area to be treated is smaller, such as the cheeks, knees or neck. For larger areas such as the abdomen, back, hips or thighs, more extensive surgery may be involved. The cosmetic surgeon may make use of different techniques involving ultrasound, laser, or other technologies. Therefore, the cost in each case may vary slightly, depending on the nature and complexity of the procedure involved.

Average Cost of Surgery

According to the ASPS figures released for 2013, the average national cost of liposuction in the US was $2,866. However, this cost is exclusive of major cost components such as anesthesia, operating room costs and other related expenses. The final cost of liposuction will vary depending on various factors as discussed above.

Health Insurance and Financing

Liposuction is usually performed as an aesthetic surgery. Therefore, the costs will not be covered by the health insurance company. However, patients can explore various financing options in order to make the payment in convenient monthly installments that does not violate their budget or financial constraints.

During the initial consultation, the cosmetic surgeon will discuss various aspects of the surgery, including the recovery process. See Tummy Tuck Before & After Photos.

The recovery will vary between patients, depending on the extent of surgery involved and the patient’s natural ability to heal. Dr. Hisham Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon providing tummy tuck procedure to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

Variable Recovery

Each cosmetic surgeon may use a different surgical technique to perform tummy tuck in accordance with the patient’s aesthetic goals. Some surgeons adopt more conservative approaches, which can yield faster recovery. If a particular case involves a complex plastic surgery, or a combination of tummy tuck with other procedures, the recovery will be longer. The procedure usually involves one or more of the following elements:

  • Removal of excess fat and skin.
  • Tightening of weak, separated or loose underlying muscles.
  • Liposuction in the hips or abdominal area.

In a case where the patient does not need the tightening of underlying muscles, the recovery period will be shorter. On the contrary, if the tummy tuck cosmetic surgery involves all three elements as listed above, the recovery will be longer and more complicated. In many cases, the surgeon may recommend buttock liposuction along with tummy tuck so that the buttocks do not appear more pronounced or awkward after the tummy tuck.

Average Period of Recovery

Within 10 to 14 days after the surgery, the patient would be in position to return to work. However, the total period of recovery may last from two to four weeks. The plastic surgeon will advise the patient to avoid lifting of heavy weights or performing any type of vigorous activities or exercises for at least one month.

If the job involves substantial physical activity, the patient should take time off for at least three weeks from work, or choose a temporary sedentary work position. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Seify makes sure that his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other areas receive a clear idea about the recovery process, and have clear instructions on how to perform during this period.

Recovery in the First 10 Days

Mild to moderate pain can be expected for the first week after tummy tuck surgery. Swelling and bruising will be more pronounced during this phase, but will begin subsiding from the next week. Patients should restrict lifting of weights to a maximum of 15 lbs during the first 10 days, and increase the limit to 30 lbs for two weeks after that.

The patient will bend over slightly while walking in the first week, but the normal posture will return gradually from the next week. Moms with small children should arrange for help for the first week to 10 days. Recovery in each case is different because each surgery has its own peculiarities. Patients should follow the instructions of the surgeon diligently during the recovery to achieve the best outcome and to mitigate any complications or issues.

What is abdominoplasty?

Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a plastic surgery procedure designed to reduce loose skin and excess tissue from around the abdominal area, and tighten the underlying weak or separated muscles in the abdomen. The goal of the cosmetic surgeon is to create firmer and flatter abdominal contour in proportion to the rest of the body.

Can liposuction be used instead of tummy tuck?

A cosmetic surgeon may recommend liposuction instead of tummy tuck if the patient needs only excess fat removal. However, if the protruding abdominal appearance is caused by muscle laxity, excess skin and stubborn fat deposits, a tummy tuck plastic surgery may be more effective. In some cases, both tummy tuck and liposuction may be used in conjunction.

Does tummy tuck reduce excess body weight?

Tummy tuck is more suited for people with a stable and moderate body weight. It is not a weight reduction cosmetic surgery.

Tummy tuck surgery is often performed in combination with liposuction, breast surgery, or other procedures. It is also usually included as a part of a mommy makeover surgery. It is important to choose an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is well-versed with performing multiple procedures, including tummy tuck.

A good surgeon will encourage patients to adopt an active and healthy lifestyle and try to achieve the desired aesthetic results through diet and exercise. However, if the fat deposits are stubborn and excess loose skin and weak underlying muscles are involved, it may not be possible to achieve the aesthetic goals with diet or exercise. In such cases, the surgeon will recommend a tummy tuck procedure.

How long will the results of a tummy tuck last?

In ideal conditions, the results of tummy tuck surgery can be permanent or very long lasting. The patient should maintain a regimen of exercise and follow a balanced diet. Tummy tuck surgery is not a substitute for diet or exercise. Aging effects will eventually make the skin loose, but excess fat deposits can be avoided permanently.

What is the recovery process?

Most patients will have to go through a period of reduced activity for about 10 to 14 days. Pain and discomfort in the treated area can be managed with pain medications in the first week. The patient can expect to go back to work within a week to 10 days. Complete swelling will take several weeks to resolve.

Tummy tuck, clinically known as abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure performed on patients who are keen to achieve a flatter and firmer abdomen, but are unable to do so with diet or exercise.

Suitable Candidates

Tummy tuck surgery is more suited for people who have good general health and fairly stable body weight.

Is Liposuction For You?

Liposuction Plastic Surgery Orange County | Newport Beach | LipoLiposuction Overview

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removal of excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body using a suction technique. The procedure is highly effective in achieving improvement in the body contour for patients who need and want to reduce stubborn fat pockets which have not responded to diet or exercise. Liposuction Before & After Photos

In some cases, the plastic surgeon may perform liposuction in combination with other surgical procedures for harmonious outcomes. Dr. Hisham Seify provides liposuction among other plastic surgery procedures to his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

Outstanding Candidates

An appropriate candidate for liposuction is someone with moderate and stable body weight but having excess fat tissue in specific areas of the body such as hips, thighs, waist, calves, back, cheeks, or neck.

The cosmetic surgeon will examine the health condition, history of previous surgeries and the personal aesthetic goals of patient before recommending liposuction. Good candidates will be non-smokers or committed to quitting smoking several weeks before and after the procedure.

Procedure

Liposuction cosmetic surgery can be performed using various techniques, depending on the needs of a particular patient. The procedure involves insertion of tiny, blunt tipped cannulas through discreetly placed incisions in the targeted areas of the body. Fat is dislodged using these cannulas as the plastic surgeon moves them around underneath the skin, and suctioned out using injections.

Advanced techniques are now available to perform liposuction in a safe, less painful, and more effective manner. Dr. Seify makes use of the latest liposuction techniques for his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other locations. The procedure may be performed using general anesthesia or IV sedation, and in most cases it can be done as an outpatient surgery.

Techniques

Some of the latest liposuction techniques employed to perform liposuction plastic surgery are as follows:

Tumescent Liposuction

This is a popular, conservative technique that involves the use of local anesthesia to numb the targeted area of the body where the cannula will be inserted. A significant amount of anesthetic solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine is delivered to the marked fatty tissue through injections before traditional surgery is performed. This technique can avoid the need for general anesthesia, making it a simpler procedure with a faster recovery.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

This technique involves the use of ultrasound waves targeted directly over the targeted area. The ultrasound energy penetrates into the deeper layers of the tissue and liquefies the fat. This makes it easier to dislodge the unwanted fat. Ultrasound based liposuction technique is more commonly employed when the fat is to be removed from larger areas such as the abdomen, sides, and back.

Laser Assisted Liposuction

This technique involves the use of low energy laser beam to heat up the deeper layers of the targeted tissue, without causing any damage to the healthy surrounding tissue. The results with laser liposuction are remarkably precise. The laser energy liquefies the fat, which is then removed using a small cannula. Recovery in case of liposuction will depend on the technique used and the extent of surgery performed.
