Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat that you can't seem to get rid of through diet and exercise. Dr. Kim will tailor your liposuction needs to remove fat from your hips, belly, thighs, buttocks, arms, back, or face to improve the shape.
Liposuction permanently removes fat cells by using a small device called a cannula that is attached to a suction pump. The cannula is inserted into small incisions placed in subtle spots on the body, enabling the removal of excess fatty tissue to reveal a more sculptured and contoured shape. The tiny incisions are then closed with a few fine stitches.
Patients will be provided with detailed instruction for post-operative care at the time of surgery. Liposuction is slightly invasive and will cause some swelling and discomfort that may be alleviated with cold compresses and mild pain medication. The patient will be instructed to wear a snug elastic garment for a few days following the procedure, and possibly at night for a few weeks.
Keep in mind that liposuction does not remove wrinkles or aging signs. It is also not to be used as a method of weight loss. Instead, liposuction strictly removes areas of excess fat from the face and body to contour them. Click here for information on Facial Liposuction.
