Choosing the Right Procedure for You

Liposuction is a great body contouring option for patients looking to sculpt areas of their body where they have stubborn fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Treatment areas can include locations in the face and body such as the thighs, hips, flanks, buttocks, neck, and upper arms. Dr. Foster will tailor the procedure to produce the very best results based on your unique, individual needs.

Following your consultation, Dr. Foster will determine which of his advanced techniques will be used. Using innovative technology and approaches, he can effectively reduce blood loss during your procedure, and shorten the amount of time needed to recover. If you require a more extensive procedures, including surgery such as a tummy tuck, the recovery time will be increased, but can deliver stunning, transformative results.

Immediately Following Procedure

Immediately following your liposuction procedure, compression garments or bandages will be applied to enhance contouring, and speed the healing process. Patients can expect to experience swelling and soreness. There may also be some bruising two to three days following the procedure. Pain relief, antibiotics, or other medications may be prescribed by Dr. Foster to prevent infection and help alleviate discomfort.

During this time, you should refrain from exercise and any strenuous activities. If you received minor treatment, you may be able to return to work after only a couple of days. However, more extensive procedures can require as much as two weeks of downtime. Dr. Foster will provide you with detailed instructions and guidelines for your recovery.

The Weeks Following Your Procedure

In the weeks following your procedure, inflammation will start to subside, and bruising will begin to fade. To help expedite the healing process, and to help lower the risk of blood clotting, we recommend that you participate in light exercise to increase blood circulation. During this period, you should still regularly wear your compression garments. Once fully healed and given approval by Dr. Foster, you can resume your regular exercise regimen.

Full Recovery

Several weeks after treatment, the swelling will be drastically reduced and your skin will begin to tighten. Most patients will be fully healed six months after their liposuction procedure. To experience long-lasting results, we recommend following a balanced nutrition and exercise plan to keep your body toned and healthy.
