We are proud to offer patients our extensive experience and expertise in liposuction, the single most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the U.S. today. Liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat that has not responded to diet and exercise from the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, and neck. Liposuction not only offers the opportunity to slim and contour chubby areas of the body; by removing the fat cells, it also ensures that these areas will not easily accumulate fatty deposits in the future.
Your Liposuction Consultation
Before a patient undergoes a liposuction treatment, there will be a consultation with Dr. Pedy Ganchi. The patient must be transparent with Dr. Ganchi regarding any past procedures and any allergies. They must also tell her about any medications or supplements they are currently taking.
Typically, surgeons recommend the cessation of medications such as painkillers and blood thinners several weeks ahead of liposuction surgery. Dr. Ganchi may also ask the patient to observe certain dietary restrictions. Failing to observe the restrictions advised may trigger certain side effects during or after the surgery.
The liposuction procedure begins with the injection of a solution composed of saline (salt water), a local anesthetic called lidocaine, and a small amount of adrenaline to decrease bruising and bleeding. This is known as either the tumescent or super-wet technique, depending on the ratio of the fluid to the fatty tissue being removed.
Once this solution has been introduced into the area planned for liposuction treatment, the doctor proceeds with one of two different methods of liposuction currently approved by plastic surgeons: suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL) or laser-assisted lipectomy.
In both methods, a tiny incision is made in as inconspicuous a place as possible. In SAL, a cannula (small tube) is inserted and moved back and forth beneath the skin, breaking up the fat layer and suctioning it out. The laser-assisted liposuction method may help break up the fat cells prior to suction aspiration.
The Liposuction Healing Process
Once your lipo procedure is complete, you will return home to heal and recover. Follow Dr. Ganchi’s post-surgical care directions for a shorter and more comfortable recovery process with minimal complications.
It is quite common for the patient to experience slight pain for a few days after a liposuction treatment. Typically, surgeons prescribe analgesics and/or over-the-counter pain relief medications to keep any pain in check.
Temporary swelling and bruising are present after liposuction. Bruising goes away on its own after some weeks. Typically, swelling can take somewhere between 2 and 6 months to fully disappear. Wearing a post-surgical garment and using ice packs can help with this process. Once all swelling has ameliorated, patients can enjoy their final liposuction results.
“Dr. Ganchi was very hands on, and helped me get exactly what I was looking for.I would definitely go back if I decided on another procedure. She was an absolute pleasure and also her staff. I had liposuction done, and would have more procedures done.”
The cost of a liposuction procedure varies from patient to patient. The total price of lipo is dependent on the amount of fat being removed, the techniques utilized, the number and size of treatment regions, and the overall time needed to perform the surgery.
Anesthesia fees and facility costs also affect the final price. When more than one area is being treated with liposuction, the procedure is priced at a discounted rate.
