About Liposuction

Liposuction is the removal of excess localized or regional fat deposits.  It generally requires skin that can tighten after surgery, so in some cases where significant loose skin is present other surgical options may be required as well.  Almost any area of the body can benefit from liposuction in the right patient, and the procedure is available for both women and men. 

Liposuction is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise, and a significant fluctuation in weight after surgery can reduce the benefits of the surgery. 

 

The Procedure

Both men and women choose this surgery, often combining it with outer procedures, such as abdominoplasty, breast reduction, gynecomastia correction, or facelift. During your consultation with Dr. Oxley, your areas of concern will be addressed and the best options discussed with you. Scarring is minimal as the procedure is done through incisions less than a centimeter in length.  The surgery is performed as a day-care surgery which means an overnight hospital stay is not required. 

 

Recovery

Simple activities are possible within a few days, but heavy lifting should be avoided for a few weeks, so parents of young children may want extra help during this time. Patients wear a special garment for 4 to 6 weeks after surgery to help reduce swelling and improve the final result.

 

What to Expect

During your consultation with Dr. Oxley, one of the key areas that will be addressed is your expected result from having liposuction.  Below are some before and after pictures that illustrate some of the results that have been achieved with Dr. Oxley through liposuction.
