Liposuction

Naples Plastic Surgery

Genetics plays a major role in determining a person's body type and in which areas of the body fat will be stored. Many patients struggle with stubborn fatty deposits that settle on their hips, buttocks, thighs, stomachs and/or arms. These trouble areas are often resistant to traditional diet and exercise weight-loss methods, which can cause emotional distress in many patients.
Liposuction is one of the only proven successful solutions for treating and eliminating these genetics-related problem areas. With liposuction our plastic surgeons, Dr. Paul M. Gardner or Dr. Leo M. Baccaro can spot-reduce and remove localized fat deposits in patients to achieve slimmer, more balanced physiques.

Liposuction in Naples

Dr. Gardner and Dr. Baccaro begin each of their liposuction procedures by first meeting with their patients to gain a deep understanding of their concerns and goals for the procedure. During this time, they also work with their patient to determine which techniques and procedures will best meet their patient's needs. Among options are tumescent liposuction, which decreases bruising and pain postoperatively.
Liposuction is an advanced body contouring Cosmetic surgery procedure that requires surgical finesse and a strong sense of artistry. During the liposuction process, Dr. Gardner or Dr. Baccaro will first determine the ideal incision locations on the body to encourage minimal scarring, and to promote the most precise levels of appropriate fat reduction. Then, the surgeon and surgical team will prepare the patient for surgery.
To begin the procedure, your surgeon will first infuse a wetting solution of saline and epinephrine into the problem areas to minimize blood loss and increase the ease of fat removal. Following infusion of the solution, your surgeon will gently suction out stubborn subcutaneous fat cells to address problem areas and successfully spot-reduce fat deposits. Depending on how much fat is to be removed, local anesthesia may be used, or, if extensive suctioning is required, general anesthesia. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis at our surgical suite, which has passed the strict regulations outlined by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF).

Recovering from Liposuction Surgery

Following liposuction surgery with Gardner Plastic Surgery, patients typically need rest for one to two weeks before being able to return to their daily schedules. Patients may experience slight swelling and bruising for several days after the procedure, and the treatment area may be wrapped with bandages or supportive garments in order to encourage faster recovery periods. Patients are strongly discouraged from engaging in any type of strenuous activity, including exercise, for at least three to six weeks following surgery to prevent complications.
Liposuction can put patients at risk for surgical complications, such as infection or swelling. Our surgeons have extensive training and experience performing liposuction procedures and have an exceptional surgical record with minimal complications. Because of Gardner Plastic Surgery's relentless pursuit of patient satisfaction, most of our patients achieve stunning results and leave our practice feeling positive about their plastic surgery experience.
